Adult Ear Infection

How long should it take before I begin to feel relief from an ear infection? I got the flu a week ago, have already gone through one prescription of Tamiflu for that. This past Sunday I woke up with severe pain in my throat and ear. The ER physician diagnosed me with tonsillitis and an ear infection. I have been on Amoxicillin since as well as Pramoxine and Ciprodex. Today is my 4th day of meds and I am getting very little relief from the ear pain and the feeling of fluid in my ear which is decreasing my hearing. The sore throat has subsided with the exception of a little tenderness yesterday. The fatigue and lethargy have not subsided as well. I have had no fever at all. Is there anything else I can do to speed recovery or ease the symptoms? Thanks in advance.
