Put on avelox friday 15th for fever 101.3, vomiting, cough, sore throat. Today woke up w/ 101.5 temp & body aches, along with same sx. Go back to pcp?

Can give Dr. a call. New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain.
