You should be much better at this point, with the medications that you have been taking. I recommend that you talk to your primary doctor and get a referral to a throat specialist to be examined for any tumors that could be interfering with your vocal cords. Usually infection causes the loss of voice and antibiotics help clear it up and then your voice returns.
