    It may take a little while for the medication to start to work but keep taking it as prescribed.

    But if you are getting worse then call your GP.

    PS. I'm moving this thread to a more relevant forum

    Hi there. It usually takes a while for medication to have an effect so don't worry. If you don't feel better by the end of the lot just call up your doctors surgery and tell them.
    The internet is a terrible place for medical things sometimes cos it pulls up all the horror stories. Just remember that the prime or was fine for didn't have any need to make a video about it so there's a whole group where you're not getting their story. Your doctor should know what they're doing do trust them and just let them know if things don't improve so they can go from there. If this is way they've suggested though I'd say there's a strong chance it's going to work cos otherwise they wouldn't bother trying it.

    I had strep throat a couple years back - I went to the doctor on like day 3 and started a course of antibiotics for 10 days. These helped a little but not much and when I got to the end of the prescription my strep throat came back just as bad as before so I had to try a different antibiotic. This one took another week or so to have any impact and even then it was still hurting a lot. It was really agonizing. It was in February a couple years back and I spent pretty much the whole month in bed with it.
