Antibiotics are powerful medicines that treat bacterial infections. However, they don't help with acute bronchitis at all because acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral infection. Antibiotics only help if the cause of bronchitis is bacteria. If your doctor gets you a prescription for antibiotics, make sure to take the full prescription of antibiotics. Even if you feel better, the infection could still be in your system. You want to make sure you kill all the bacteria on the first try.   Keywords: antibiotics bronchitis; best antibiotic bronchitis adults; bronchitis cough
