Brief Answer:
You can take Claritromycin

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in HCM

I can understand your concern

It would be better for you to give some more information about your concern such as : for what are you treated about? ?

Nevertheless if you are already suffering from bronchitis or pneumonia and you are alergic to penicillin anothe choice for youwould be the class of macrolides (like Claritromycin orally twice for up to seven days )

You can discuss with your doctor for this and i am ssure he will prescribe it for you.

Hope to have been helpful for you

Regards and feel free to ask me again
