I've been sick for 3 weeks now. With sore and itchy throat and persistent coughing. Already drank Amoxicillin for 10 days now and not getting better.
I've been dizzy for 3 days now what could it be I've been on amoxil (amoxicillin) and dexamethasone for 6 days now for sinus and throat infection?
Anything: Your dizziness can have any cause at this time. Change in blood pressure especially when you change positions, known as orthostatic hypotension. Side effects of medication is possible too, especially dexametasone. I'd stop (it sounds an overkill to treat sinus/throat infection for that long with it). Also, make sure you drink plenty of fluids and take over-the-counter probiotic with your ab. ...Read more

Have had clear runny nose for two months. Just finished ten days of antibiotic. Still have the runny nose. Help!
Clear drippy nose: When the drippy discharge from your nose is present more than a week or two it is most likely due to allergies. Antibiotics are of no use for allergies. They treat bacterial infections, which generally cause secretions to turn yellow or green after a few days. Medications that help allergies include antihistamines, decongestants, nasalcrom, steroid nasal sprays and antihistamine sprays. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had throat infection for past 15 days.i have taken 3 days antibiotics AZITHROMYCIN before food.the second Day I felt nausea and I vomited.is this safe?
Yes, it's safe: Azithromycin often causes stomach upset, cramps, diarrhea, etc. It's not dangerous, just uncomfortable. You can reduce it by taking azithromycin with meals, but it sounds like you're already doing that. Perhaps try taking it during or after the meal instead of before. If any doubt, contact the doctor who prescribed it. ...Read more
I had strep, got steroid and antibiotics for ear infection and strep. Its been three weeks and still congested and coughing up green mucous. Normal?
URI: Upper respiratory infections may be caused by bacteria or viruses, or very rarely by fungus. In your case, I assume a test was done to confirm that you had a strep infection which was treated by antibiotics. You may have also had a viral infection, which will not respond to antibiotics, or you may have a new bacterial infection at this point. Please schedule a follow up visit with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have an outer ear infection and the drops are not working see if your ENT doctor can culture the ear to see what kind of organism is causing the infection then they can get more specific answer as to which drugs to give you. For a middle ear infection a ct scan of the ear may be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tonsillitis: Swollen tonsils with pus can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or by Epstein barr virus( EBV) . Streptococcus respond well to penicillin based antibiotics like augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) or amoxycillin . If someone is not responding to antibiotics then taking swab from tonsils and blood test to rule out EBV infection can be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So it's been about 3 weeks since I've been sick. I was prescribed with Amoxicillin for 10 days and finished but I'm not getting any better. Help!
Not all bacteria...: ...respond to all antibiotics. Considerations: 1) do you know if your illness was bacterial in origin? 2) If cultures proved positive, were antibiotic sensitivities checked to know that you took the correct antibiotic? By the way, viruses do not respond to antibiotics, so if symptoms persist a re-evaluation is appropriate now. ...Read more

Have been taking antibiotics on and off for my right ear which frequently feels the presence of water. Unable to get rid of the water.
Congestion: Ear infections are much less common in adults than they are in children. In many cases, this kind of sensation is due to congestion of the eustachian tubes, which connect the ear to the back of the throat. Antibiotics are useless for this problem; decongestants are far more effective. But if decongestants don't work, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Uri with blocked ear: Quite common. Try to pop the ears by grabbing your nose and blowing hard with you mouth closed. If this does not work try some afrin nasal spray for only 3 to 4 days. Over this you will get addicted to it. Give the antibiotic time to work. The infection is going to take 7 to 8 days to start to clear. Good luck. Hang in there ! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
