Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

It looks like your husband is suffering from upper respiratory infection. He is prescribed antibiotics and cough syrup.

Antibiotics take a few days - 3 days to produce significant improvement in health. Taking 3 doses instead of 2 will not help in faster recovery. So avoid over dosing.

Instead try deep steam inhalation with essential oils like menthol / eucalyptus oil / karvol plus capsule thrice a day; take paracetamol 500mg thrice a day; warm fluids; plenty of fluids, vegetable and fruits; adequate rest and multivitamin pills. These will help in faster recovery.

Hope this helps.

I wish your husband speedy recovery.
