Question: I was prescribed 500mg Amoxicillin for 10 days, along with decrease amounts of 5mg Prednisone over 7 days. I had a fever of 103 and severe body aches, along with sleep sweats and uncontrollable shivering. Is this a flu or something bacterial ??

Brief Answer:
bacterial infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking in HealthcareMagic.

I can understand your concern

Given the fact that you are taking antibiotic and steroids it seems to me that this is a bacterial infection.

It might have been started as a flu and superimposed later from bacterial agents.

I advice you to continue all the treatment and in the end do a chest X Ray if it is possible for you.

Or you can attach me the result and i will help you again

Take care and feel free to ask me again
