Agammaglobulinemia, x-linked

Should my child with X-linked agammaglobulinemia take all of his antibiotic medication if he's feeling better?

You should always follow your doctor's instructions about taking medications. If the course of treatment is 14 days, then you should take antibiotics for the full 14 days. Just because your feeling better doesn't mean that the bacteria or infection is gone.
