Antibiotic effects: It's quite possible you're experiencing side effects from the antibiotics. Depending on how 'bad' your condition is now, will determine the best course of action. Azithromycin usually isn't 'that bad' in terms of causing diarrhea, but if you give us more info here -I think the Health Tap community can help. Diarrhea more than 3x a day is something I pay attention too. Chicken soup for now may help

Varies: Breastfed babies can poop after every feeding, with every feeding, once a day, every other day, and "all the time." as long as its soft and they are feeding well and gaining weight, this is all normal.

No: Coughing up mucous is a normal lung and airway function. You could have COPD for other reasons though.

NOTHING!: Two unrelated medication. One is the antibiotic zithromax. Contains no opiates. Have to avoid opiates and other drugs of abuse.
