Default Budgie is very sick

My budgie of 8 weeks old is sick. Yesterday we went to the vet and the doctor told me that my bird has a respiratory infection. He gave her vitamin C, antibiotics and a tonic to become stronger. After taking the medicine she started vomiting. When we came home she looked stronger and tried to eat and started cleaning herself. Today she's sitting at the bottom of the cage and it seems like she is trying to throw up but without success. She is feeling very ill and distressed.

Please take a look at the video of her.

Does somebody know whats wrong with my bird?

Did you see an Avian Vet or a regular vet?

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma. This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

She may be having a reaction to the anti-biotic but there is no way anyone on the forum can really help you. She needs to be seen by an Avian Vet to determine the proper diagnosis.

If you saw an Avian Vet, please call them right away.

If not, please locate one and take her in as an emergency patient.

Good luck and please let us know how she does.

Thank you very much for your help, FaeryBee.

I took her to a regular vet.. I'll take her to an Avian vet today. Hopefully she will be healthy soon.

UPDATE:

I returned from the Avian vet.. Turned out she has Coccidiosis and Trichomoniasis. The doctor gave us coxi plus and tricho plus. She needs to take it mixed in her water for 5 days.

Our other three young budgies also need to take them but for three days.

Thank you once again FaeryBee. ^^
