I would go back to your Doctor, all medication have different side effects or he could be having an allergic reaction. If he is you need to get note of it and have them give him something different. My kids doctors like to use a z pak which doesn't take as long to use it all. Which is nice if you forget to give it or your not carrying it around with you

Well if he's worst and not better than yes you should call the doctor back and see if they want to reexamine him or prescribe something stronger.
