I'm on day six of Clarithromycin, and I'm pleased to say the mucus has now become clear and less of it. phew. However my nose seems to be constantly running and clogging up every few hours, but much better than it was a week ago. Also much less blood when I flush with saline/bicarbonate, so I think I've made a bit of a breakthrough. I'm going to stop using the decongestant tablets/spray but I'm going to continue with peroxide flooding every morning until I'm certain the infection has gone.
I'm still feeling exhausted and needing to rest a lot. Tried a bit of housework and it knocked me out for 4 hours! But at least I am now able to attempt a bit of tidying up (my house looks like a bomb has hit it!)
Hopefully everyone else will start feeling better soon too.
