At a loss. My mom has multifocal pneumonia in both lungs. I knew she had it for 2-3 weeks but she refused to go to anyone but "her"doctor and there was a waiting list. She finally was diagnosed about a week ago. He put her on Levaquil, the antibio that's been in the news for all the horrific side effects. Subsequent crazy showed slight upper lobe improvement but she still felt awful. He switched her to Cipro due to lack of confidence in Leva. The horse pills were too big to swallow so I cut them in half for her. Since taking them yesterday she has had bad nausea and diarrhea. Now she won't take anything until she talks to her doc again Monday. She looks & feels worse than ever, I'm seeing no improvement after 8 days, and she screamingly refuses to even discuss going to emergency room or taking more meds. I don't want my mom to die of this but at the same time I knows want to murder her. (Not really, FBI) anybody have thoughts or advice?
