I finished Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 875mg/125mg sunday morning and monday morning i took levonelle step one emergency pill. Does the pill work?

And if you are taking antibiotics, use a condom or diaphragm for protection instead of hormonal pills ...Read more

A chest xray is also a good idea if you have not had one. Are their fevers to suggest an infection? If so this will need to be looked at in more detail. Finally, i think it's time you went to see your doctor. Breathing issues are very serious. ...Read more
