Pulmonologist Questions Bronchitis

Can one feel excessively sleepy while recovering from bronchitis?

I am recovering from bronchitis, and I've been on an antibiotic called Cefoprim. However, I am feeling extremely sleepy and drowsy due to this antibiotic. What should I do?

Unless the bronchitis was very severe and the patient elderly, excessive sleepiness should not occur after recovery. Even if the first situation applies, recovery should be complete within a week or so after the illness. Antibiotics in themselves are not associated with sleepiness/sedation.
