Hello sir,,, it's good that you thought of avoiding higher antibiotics. Most of the times cold, cough, throat infection is due to viral causes gets better itself with some time,, how ever avoid cold food or drinks and warm salt water gargling, drinking hot coffee helps to relieve symptoms fast. Since you are started on antibiotics, it is important to complete course of it, it takes at least 3 days to see response. If it is getting better, should be continues for another 5 to 7 days. If your symptoms worsens with above treatment consult a general physician.
