How do you get rid of strep that the first round of medicine did not get rid of and you can't afford the med a second time around?

In brief: Ask for samples

Strep throat responds to treatment in most patients.
When it does not clear, a different antibiotic may be needed. Samples may be available to treat infections, sometimes free clinics help provide free medicines, or ask the doctor for a less expensive or generic medication which may be available for as little as $4.
