When you have bronchitis how long of a supply should you be giving antibiotics for? The second of the month i was giving a five day supply for antibiotics but I am still very sick. Was this not enough?

In brief: Antibiotic specific

The length of time that you need to be on a given antibiotic is specific to which one you were given.
It sometimes even depends on the severity of disease.
