I have similar symptoms and my family dr. prescribed azitrhomycin. I am on my second day and don't feel much better yet, but the dr. said in 2-3 days it should start to clear up. I'm also taking tylenol b/c i have had bad sinus headaches. I really didn't want to have to take any antibiotics, but I was sick for over 2 weeks and wasn't getting better.
I also have symptoms that are consistent with yours. I starting coughing (dry) like 2 wks ago w/ congestion, raspy voice and some sore throat symptoms. This week, however, it became more productive w/ green phylemn being coughed up.... sorry, tmi. Anyway, I absolutely could not take it any longer so I went to the emergency room and was prescribed the Z pak as well as some Robotussin AC.
Now, with the Z pak, it was tested with pregnant animals (I know, I know) and was considered fine to give to pregnant women--but, this Robotussin, it clearly states on the warning that this product WILL IN FACT CAUSE FETAL HARM. I recommend that you do not take the robotussin at all. Get you some cough drops or something to help. As with the Azithromycin *Z pak*, it should be okay.
I hope you feel better. This is my 2nd day on the Z pak and I didn't wake up coughing up the green yucky stuff so that is a real plus for me.
