Hello,
Levosiz tablet does not treat asthma symptoms completely. Bronchodilators such as salbutomol / formeterol / salmeterol / budesonide inhalers can be used initially.The side effects are also less because it is directly inhaled into lungs. Do not take antibiotics unnecessarily, it can lead to bacterial resistance.

YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM ALLERGIES
NO NEED OF AQNTIBIOTICS IN ALLERGIES
YOU HAVE TO USE ANTIALLERGICS ANTIALLERGICS CAN BE TAKEN FOR LIFE LONG WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS YOU CAN USE AS PREVENTERFS OR FOR TREATMENT
MONTELUCAST PLAIN OR COMBINATION WITH FEXOFENADINE IS SAFEST
SO IF OKAY YOU CAN USE ROUTIN AND OFF AND ON BASIS
BUT YOU SHOULD GO FOR ALLERGY TREATMENTS TO CURE

hello mam
welcome to health care magic,,
levosiz(levo cetrizine) is an anti allergic tablet,,it gives only temporary relief but not decreases the problem(asthma)you have.....you need to start a beta agonist for that,,
no need to take antibiotic course,,,
consult chest physician,he/she will conduct pulmonary function tests and they will decide which beta agonist is suitable to you..dont get delay by taking cetrizine only..
hope you will follow my suggestion..have a speedy recovery
thank you
