Suggest treatment for pharyngitis as V pen didn't work

Hi, should I go to see doctor again? I got antibacterials (V-Pen 1500 2x10) for pharyngitis but it doesnt seem to work, its 4th day already i've been taking these pills. Could it be mononucleosis? What should I do? Its really hard to eat or drink anything.
