Cold flu symtoms Fever for more than seven days

Patient : I have had a bad cold for two plus weeks and my Dr. first put me on Cipro for a week, but that didn't seem to do the trick. On Thursday he put me on Avelox and now its Monday and I still have a temp of 101 and a have a mild sore throat. I woke up this morning sweating. I feel pretty good but I am not sure if I should go back to my Dr. or if it's ok for me to go to work and or what. Can you give me some guidance. From the articles I have read online with a viral infection it isn't uncommon. John
