This varies according to your specific illness, your overall health, the strength of your immune system, and many other individual factors. In most cases, conditions such as infections can be resolved quite quickly. For example, if you have a UTI, Dr. Berger may prescribe a course of antibiotics. You'll usually start to feel like yourself again and be out of pain within just a few days. However, even when you start to feel better, it's important that you finish the whole course of medication to fully eliminate the problem.
If you're suffering from a problem like respiratory illness, it may take a few days before you feel better. Rest is an important component of recovering from many illnesses. When Dr. Berger advises you to get plenty of rest and drink your fluids, take his advice to heart. When you combine rest and prescribed medications, healing is much easier and faster.
