I would get a second opinion. Continually giving a child antibiotics eventually builds a resistance to them and they won't work when you need them to. Giving antibiotics for a cough and cold is not necessary. Did your doctor do any tests to actually check that antibiotics were even going to be effective? Antibiotics don't help with colds anyway.
