In brief: Yes

It sounds like you have viral bronchitis.
Most cases of bronchitis are caused by respiratory viruses that do not respond to antibiotics. More severe and prolonged cases are usually bacterial bronchitis caused by strep. Pneumoniae, hemophilus sp. And moraxella sp. These are usually treated with zithromax, ceftin, (cefuroxime) vantin, Augmentin or levoquin.
