Brief Answer:
you should continue with the medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.
Pneumonia takes few days to weeks for complete recovery.
After reading your post, it is evident that your friend is recovering from the disease as now he is not having fever. You should continue with the prescribed medications.
Steam inhalation will help in relief of cough.
You can give cough expectorant syrup containing Ambroxol or Guaneiphesin after discussing with your doctor.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Thanks.
