I've been on Augmentin for 5 days now and I don't feel better.
Patient : I was diagnosed with strep throat on Monday.
I've been on Augmentin for 5 days now and I
don't feel better. How long does it take for
the medicine to work? Shouldn't it have started
working already? If I go back to the doctor,
and he does a strep test, will it be positive
or negative because I am on antibiotics?
