hi i have been treated for strep throat after being admitted to the ER two days ago.I have had strep before, and it seemed to follow all of the previous symptoms, yet i am sleeping 14 hours per day. What would you suggest?

also i have dealt with anxiety disorder for about 8 years so i am on paxil and wellbutrin. Will this inhibit or lengthen my recovery time? as i only have a few weeks before school restarts

Thanks for the query

I would like to know a few more things in order to come to a better conclusion

1. Please mention the drugs you were given for the streptococcus infection
2. What was your average sleeping hours before the infection?
3. Please tell me your daily routine on an average day
4. Are you feeling exessive fatigue lately for no apparent reason?

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply
