In brief: Finish antibiotics

Go see your doc, especially if by "huff and puffing" you mean "short of breath" or difficulty breathing, in which case, you should go back sooner than later. You've listed z pak, Aldactone (spironolactone) & flexeril, none of which help w/breathing per se.
Azithromycin has a long half-life so you only need to finish the pack but it will stay in your system for a 10-14d. New study says average cough can last 18d.
