Your symptoms are suggestive of Throat Infection. If it is due to virus then no need for any Antibiotic like Azithromycin or Levofloxacin.

In my practise I usually prefer Levofloxacin which is pretty much effective and safe. Since you have already been started I recommend you to continue the same .

For Gut flora imbalance , you can take any probiotics like Enterogermina till you complete the antibiotic course.

In addition do salt water gargling , drink hot water , eat less oily food , avoid non veg food , avoid Citrus fruits.

Hope this information was useful to you.
