Question: Should I still feel feverish?

 2fttaxi - Mon Mar 14, 2005 2:41 am

I was diagnosed with a sinus infection on Thursday, March 10, after being feverish and weak for two days. The doctor prescribed Cefzil (500mg) one pill, twice per day. He said that I probably wouldn't start feeling better until Monday (14th), but I still feel feverish (although I don't have a fever) and weak. I don't even want to get out of bed, I go through sweats and cold chills. I have a cough and I am expelling plenty of mucus. My question is, should I still be feeling like this? Does the Cefzil need more time to work?

User avatar Hi 2fttaxi,
Generally speaking, about three days after starting the use of antibiotics you should notice a considerable difference. I would suggest that if you are still feeling ill that you notify your physician and let him/her know so that if a different form of treatment is required it can be initiated.
