Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified pediatrician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, is your daughter able to drink fluids, keep them down, and is she urinating regularly? And is she having any rapid, shallow, labored breathing at all?

Thank you for that information. I'm so sorry to hear she got sick with BOTH the flu and strep at the same time, poor kiddo! The amoxicillin is doing it's job and will cure her of the strep, no problem. It's the flu that's making her so tired out, weak and wanting to lie down all the time. Also the persistent fever. Influenza (flu) is a virus while strep is a bacteria, so the antibiotic amoxicillin will address the strep as a bacteria, but NOT the flu as a virus. She will recover from the flu itself, it just takes longer. Lots of rest and fluids as much as she is willing to take, and as long as she is urinating without and rapid, shallow, labored breathing and she'll make a full recovery, probably by this weekend, as it usually takes about 7 days for kids to recover.

Any other questions I can help you with today?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
