Hi well come to HCM.
Drugs selected are ok. To treat endocarditis at times pretty long time course of
antibiotic is needed. Duration of two days is not sufficient to judge efficacy of any
antibiotic. Any antibiotic ones selected should be given fair trial unless condition becomes critical in between. If at all it happens Doctor will add some thing to this
for additional help in terms of antibiotic of his choice. Trust your doctor they will
do their best. Good luck. Thanks
