Thank you for your contact to healthcare magic.
I understand your health concern, if I am your doctor I suggest you that take the medication as your doctor has suggested you. You should think for doing culture and sensitivity from the sputum. Once you have report take treatment accordingly.

I will be happy to answer all your future concern.
Thank you,
