What to do with DD (post bronchitis)?

DD (16) had a bad flu-ey cold and got better for a few days then got a lot worse

The GP diagnosed bronchitis & prescribed 7 days of Amoxy (she has asthma and they are always quite conservative with her chest)

She finishes them tonight & she just phoned (she is at her nana's getting help with revision) and told me how tired and down she is feeling.

We had a brush with post viral - possibly glandular fever last year.

Do I just accept she gets 'post-viral' after infections or should I take her back to check the infection has gone? She doesn't have any 'obviously' chest like problems, just lethargy, miserableness, lack of appetite & 'not acting like a teenager'
