Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I had gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.
This could be due respiratory tract infection.
I recommend the following.
1) Complete the antibiotic course.
2) Analgesic like tablet paracetamol for pain relief.
3) An expectorant cough syrup. The syrup you are using currently is for dry cough.
4) Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
5) Avoid smoking. If you don't have this habit, kindly ignore this suggestion.
You will be fine.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
Wish you a good health and speedy recovery.
