My mom has fluid in the lungs and inflammation indicating pneumonia. They've had her on 2 broad-spectrum antibiotics for 5 days with no improvement. Pls forgive my healthy anger, but these docs are drug addicted, and just want to prescribe more -- when VIRAL infection is clearly indicated and is not helped AT ALL by antibiotics, which will definitely open her up to recurrent infection and weakened immune system. I am going to ask them to at least limit this treatment to 7 days, or, if possible, stop it NOW.... When the TWO (it's never one with the drugs these days, is it???) antibiotics didn't work, these drug addicted docs didn't stop them, but topped them off with PREDNISONE STEROIDS instead. I am so angry I could spit. She was up all night talking to imaginary friends -- a steroid side effect which could indicate allergy and could also have long-term effects on her brain. After that horrible side effect. the response of these drug-addicted docs was to DOUBLE HER DOSE. It is very hard for me not to hate them..... I know that is not constructive.... I am going to get my mother off steroids -- she is also on TWO DIFFERENT INHALANT DRUGS FOUR TIMES PER DAY for breathing difficulty. Find the one that works and then let it work. If it doesn't work then stop it, don't add another drug and then another and another!!!!! When docs lose common sense, I know I need to speak up, and I am..... I am also going to try to get her out of ICU. The compulsion to overmedicate is obviously worse there... Any have any experience, strength, hope or support to share???
