Re: Is it normal to come down with a fever while on antibiotics?
Influenza is a virus, not a bacteria - the antibiotics will treat any side-infection you have, but they're not going to do anything to change the course of the original flu. If that's making you miserable, unfortunately the antibiotics won't stop it. If the fever spikes to a higher level or you suddenly feel much worse, go see a doctor asap, but otherwise drink plenty of liquids, take vitamins, and any other OTC medications you find helpful, and get as much rest as you can.
