Brief Answer:
Take medicine only under Doctor's advise

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query.

I understand you had difficulty after taking erythromycin. It is an antibiotic. Please take medications only under the guidance of a doctor who has examined you. The difficulty you experienced does not seem to be an effect of erythromycin. But, yes,, there can be changes from person to person. Since the symptoms have disappeared, I do not think that you need to worry.

Please do the following to get better regarding water. Avoid drinking anything cold.
- Warm saline gargles, at least 3-4 times a day.
- Steam inhalation with Cap. Karvol Plus dissolved in the water.
- Tab. Celin 500mg (Vitamin C) 3 times daily for one week.
- If the chest congestion is more, then you may need to visit your family physician for a check up and appropriate medications.

Hope I had been able to help you. Let me know if I can assist you further.
