Hello dear,welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I reviewed your query and here is advise.
You should find the cause of lymph nodes and stop taking medications without doctor recommendations.
Since antibiotics dont work it may be a viral infection or EBV or a blood disease.
Do a total blood count and discuss it with a doctor.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
