You are correct- you can wait till tomorrow for antibiotics.
Ventorlin is given only if there is wheezing for bronchospasm.
So let your doctor decide about ventorlin unless she is a known wheezer and your doctor advised you to start it SOS!
All the best

OBGYN Dr. Asra Ishtiaq Ahmed's  Response
Hello there,

With regards to query 1, yes Ventolin syrup can be given with Crocin syrup provided both the drugs are rightly indicated for the condition. Ventolin is a broncholdilator and is indicated for shortness of breath or wheezing episodes. In order to start Ventolin , therefore you must be absolutely sure this is neither an antibiotic nor a drug that brings down fever, ie anti pyretic. Crocin is used for treating fever.

Regarding query 2, the decision to stop an antibiotic does not depend upon the subsidence of fever. Ideally when an antibiotic is started, it is given for at least 7 days. So allow completion of a course of antibiotic.

I hope I have answered both your queries.

Take care.
