Sowmya Somi,

Is there any reason why you wish to take antibiotics for common cold and flu?

You may try normal home based tactics to get rid of the flu Sowmya. Avoid antibiotics unless your doctor has prescribed it under medical supervision.

Best regards

unless there is evidence of an infection antibiotics are useless. using antibiotics without need increases antibiotic residence. rest and fluids is best for minor illness. most caughs and colds will pass after a few days and medicine is not required.

Try natural remedies like steaming, honey and ginger or Ayurvedic medicine. Most antibiotics are drowsy
