Advice & Tips: The Z-Pack seemed to work, but then I ended up with Pneumonia and an asthma attack (and with infection symptoms) and had to go stay in the hospital for a week beginning a few days later (Aug. 20,2014). I seem to recall using the Z-pack before and while it seems to get rid of the infections, it isn't enough to keep them from coming back rather quickly after stopping treatment.
