Thanks for using the XXXXXXX I am happy to address your questions, if there are no further symptoms and shortness of breath does not continue then you need not worry as even a short course levofloxacin can also be adequate. If you have any worsening of breathing or fever then will advice you to kindly visit your clinician. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
