Patient Comments: Sore Throat - Antibiotics

What antibiotics were you prescribed for sore throat and why?

Published: November 04

I had a sore throat back July 22 and was treated with antibiotics and hydrocodone it was not strep, and it cleared up. Last night it started again and I have taken two doses of the hydrocodone. This has not happened before. I'm trying to determine if I need to see the doctor again.
