Default URI, fatigue or Baytril side effects?

So this week my hedgehog, Charlemagne, was showing symptoms of the beginnings of a respiratory infection. Te was sneezing and licking his nose, which had a bit of clear mucus. He also was a bit lethargic and with shortness of breath. I took him to the vet as soon as I noticed the symptoms and my suspicion was right. Charlie had no liquid in his lungs, bit his airways were loud, so he spent tge night at the vet doing inhalations and was prescribed a course of antibiotics. The day he came back home he was great. The sneezing was almost gone, he was running in his wheel all night. But the way after he started losing activity. The sneezing is still down, the nose seems a little better, but he is not leaving his igloo. At all. He is eating, but only if I bring food to him. I tried to offer water and he tipped it over trying to burrow himself in the blankets.
He is more lethargic than the day I noticed his URI, but his breathing is better.
Another thing that is happening is that despiste all this, when de give the antibiotics to him he is an absolute hurricane to avoid it. He runs everywhere, hides, twists away from our grasp. So clearly he has no neuro damage. He is pretty fast when he wants. But he wont leave his bed.
Which is why I think it could also be stress. But if he is stressed, why isn't he grumpy? He runs from the medicine but seems receptive to his humans.
