Thank you fo your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I can understand your concern.
Alternatively, you can cephalosporin group of antibiotics such as Cefixime. Your physician can guide you regarding the dose, and the recommended dose is 200 mg twice daily for 2 weeks.
Cefixime will work better than other antibiotics.
