First I was on amoxicillian every 8 hours, motrin 800 & tylenol that didnt work so I then had to get 3 bags of fluid via iv because i was dehydrated. Antibiotic chlamidicin & a steriod in my iv because my throat had closed. They send me home with chlamidicin, tylenol with codeine & motrin 600. After a few days and no results i went back and they gave me a penicilin shot in my buttox but my symptoms are still the same. That was 3 days ago i cant eat & i can barely drink. My tonsils have white build up & i keep coughing up yellow/green mucus ive had strep throat for 11 days now
Despite your doctor prescribing the correct medications for strep throat there must be something else going on?
I would make another appointment with your doctor Asap. The antibiotics should be working by now.
I would ask to have the antibiotic reevaluated? Maybe you need a different antibiotic?
Also, if you're still feeling miserable throughout your body,. I would ask your doctor to draw blood.
Hope you feel better soon.
They DID do a throat culture right?
OR were you told it looks like strep?
Call your doc ASAP because you can have complications from untreated Strep. Seriously, call your doc.
I recommend you seek another physician or a different urgent care. Penicillins are usually first line in terms of strep, but clearly if there is no resolve after three days you need to seek a doctor and ask for a different class of medications. The presence of white exudate along with a lack of resolve from penicillins points me in asking for a different class of antibiotics. Clindamycin is a good antibiotic but there are better ones for respiratory tract infections.
I do not know your age or past medical history etc, in order to recommend a medication to ask your physician about, but I think you need a different antibiotic that will work, rather than antibiotics and pain meds.
If you begin to experience difficulty breathing or gasping for air etc, please seek IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY MEDICAL ATTENTION.
I hope you feel better.
Go back to the doctor and get a stronger antibiotic ASAP! Augmentin, cephalexin, Ciprofloxacin, and many more antibiotics are available that are stronger and have less resistance in strep than the plain old first line antibiotics!
Cipro and Doxycycline together 10 days will clear it, hope you had a culture done, I did and that is what they gave me.
