Re: what do I do after I have finished my antibiotics and i am still sick?

Hi, If you're still sick with the same symptoms, either it's a virus, which antibiotics won't help, or if it is a bacterial infection and the first antib. didn't help, go back to the doctor and get a different antibiotic. They will prescribe the "Drug of choice" for a certain illness, but bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics, so a different one hopefully will work. Did they do a Culture and Sensitivity? The sensitivity shows which antib. will most easily kill the bacteria. Good luck!
