Dear Maradon

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I suggest that you take a different antibiotic specifically targeted for the treatment of pneumonia, as well as having chest physio done and to nebulise with Berotek & Atrevent three times a day. You should make an appointment with a Physician, in order to get assistance with regards to your iron deficiency.

Kind regards
