May be normal.: It take some time to have the cough to go away not necessarily when you finish the antibiotic. Having said that some other possibilities does exist such as if you have an asthma , if it turn to pneumonia, are the medications appropriate. See your doctor to go over your treatment and see if your doctor may need to do something differently or you need some tests to rule out othe possibilities.
