Medication useage?

My 4 year old son went to the dr with an ear infection and she prescribed Amoxicillan but she said to wait a day before giving it to him to see if it would go away on its own.
That was a few days ago and it went away but now hes got a fever and is feeling hot and not himself. He has a bad cough too. So I'm wondering if I could just get his prescription for the amox and give it to him (i know they have given it to him before for when hes been like this)
Or should I take him back to the dr?

  • Get the medicine and give it to him. It's hard to know when an infection is entirely gone.
