Yes, you can take an OTC flu medicine with your antibiotic but you should let your Dr know that you are not responding to the antibiotic especially if you seem to be getting worse and your fever is going up. It could be that you have a virus, which the antibiotic would not be effective against, or it could be that the Sulfa is not effective against the organism you are infected with if it is indeed a bacterial infection. Either way, you should consult your physician again.
