Took z pack for bronchitis. Feeling congested and getting yellow phlgem. What to do?

Hello Dr., I went to an urgent care and they gave me a z pack and an albuterol inhaler for severe bronchitis . I just finished the z pack yesterday. I am feeling a lot better, but still congested and getting some yellow phlgem when blowing my nose . It is much better, but still some yellow. Should I call to see about a 2nd round of Azithromycin (z pack)

what were your symptoms? and on what findings were you diagnosed as having severe bronchitis.?Was there anything on your blood work, chest X-ray, sputum C/S.If the diagnosis of severe bronchitis is correct then the dose of azithromycin you have taken should be enough. acute bronchitis is usually viral related and only in small number of people bacteria is the cause.There is no need for second coarse at the moment. however if you still are having symptoms even after 2 weeks time you should revisit the nearest doctor for an alternate diagnosis.
take care
