My doctor is on holidays so can t consult with her. Need advice. Do not have any more pain or blockage in ear

General & Family Physician 's  Response

You should never smoke, take alcohol or indulge in any kind of addictions while you are taking medicines & are under treatment. It can interact with the medicine causing side effects, reduce efficacy of the medicine & make you feel discomfort.

In case you have trouble breathing, get swelling of your lips, face, tongue or throat. You should stop taking the medicine & immediately visit ER. Get your symptoms managed urgently.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
