Antibiotic failure: A Z-pak is a good choice to treat several causes of upper respiratory tract infections. However, as with all antibiotics, none kill all germs. Since docs pick an antibiotic that has a good chance, based on symptoms & exam, not expensive cultures, we pick the right one about 80% of the time. If you don't get better, then the antibiotic did n't completely work for your germ. Call Doc or H-Tap Prime,
