Patient

Q: Hi, I believe I have strep throat. This is usually what I get when I am sick. And it is the same symptoms as when I had strep throat. I have been feeling awful yesterday and today. I am conjested and my throat hurts. The last time I had strep throat I got proscribed to amoxicillin. And I didn't know you were sopossed to take all of it so I stopped taking it and some of the symptoms started coming back. And it eventually went away. So this time I realized I still had a ton of it left so I have been taking it twice a day for the last two days. I feel kind of the same today as I did yesterday. Just wondering if the medicine will do the trick or what I need to do. Thanks.
