Not just that but even if you did have the flu, two days of antibiotics is pointless. You need to take the entire dose, usually 5 days. When you get given a box of antibiotics, you take the whole box as instructed. This is one of the most common mistakes and why people often need to go through a second round.
This is assuming a decent GP actually gave you the antibiotics, not an idiot sibling who doesn't know what the fuck they are doing.
Yeah but in this case he took Amoxicillin, which is only good for bronchitis and pneumonia. Jenny's right, it wouldn't have done jack shit for a cold, even had he taken the whole thing.
