Insufficient info: Insufficient history and clinical detail. Zithromax is an oral antibiotic, not asthma treatment. No reference to past clinical history, the type of inhaler, how long you have been using it, any other symptoms or clinical findings. Chest pain is not a symptom of asthma. Why do you not go back to your doctor? Playing guessing games without providing clinical information will not help you.
