Question suggestions for post hospitalized pneumonia

My step-son has been out of the hospital for over a week now and he is still very week and coughing constantly. He runs a fever of between 100 and 101.5 degrees and is lethargic. His breathing is labored and he occasionally coughs up mucus. He was in the hospital for 4 days and they released him. His Mom talked to the pediatrician and they seem to think he is fine. He is on amoxicillin and is suffering high blood pressure. He is fourteen years old and normally pretty healthy.

We are wondering if there are any home remedies that would ease his symptoms and speed up his recovery???

Re: suggestions for post hospitalized pneumonia

Some Mucinex would help him cough up the gunk from his chest

A good multivitamin plus extra vitamin c would help his immune system kill the invaders.

Some Tylenol would hlp him feel better by reducing fever, headache, malaise etc
