WHY IS THERE A SUDDEN OUTBREAK OF "WALKING Pneumonia????" I live in California 95376 & I didn't even know that existed. And WHY am I taking Azithromycin????? 250 MG. I feel like I'm losing my mind and I'm in college to about to fail! I've missed one whole week already because my professor said to stay home. My doctor said it's contagious! IS IT?! I don't know! I've lost TEN pounds in a week too! Hot/Cold flashes, runny nose, wheezing, aches in my legs and itching! Can someone please tell me if I'm taking the right medicine along with the inhaler he just gave me?????? Dear GOD. Can someone please tell me why he have me this "Z" pack of antibiotics?!
