Hi. I have already taken antibiotics (cefixime 200 mg) for 5 days for a respiratory infection, but it hasn't cured my cough and cold. Another doctor has recommended me a second dose of antibiotics to take after 8 days of completion of my first dose. Well the second doctor wasn't aware that I already had one course. Should I continue with the second round of antibiotics?
