Whichever treatment you are using, your symptoms should start getting better in one to two days and go away completely within seven days of starting the treatment.
It's very important to use the full course of treatment, even if your symptoms start to improve before all the medication has been used.
If your symptoms do not go away within seven days, if they seem to get worse, or if new symptoms appear, see your doctor.
Not sure whether your treatment is working as it should? Talk to your doctor or pharmacist for help! Fill out the "Doctor Discussion Guide" to help you during your appointment.
