Patient : Hello. I am a healthy 40- yr old male (with a slight cholesterol issue.) I finished a Z-pack about two weeks ago for a bronchial infection. I recently (about three days ago) became exposed to an abundance of mold found in our new home. I became dizzy, foggy, focus issues, fever, chills, and had difficulty breathing- felt like mucus in my throat but not drainage into my chest. (Note: I had childhood asthma and plenty of allergies.) I went to local urgent care Dr and he prescribed another Z-pack along with a shot of "antibiotics", a shot of a steroid, and ordered some prednisone as well. My question is: Not being concerned with the resistance issue, I would like to know how safe "heart-wise" it is to take another Z-pack within the same month? Thank you, Brian
