Man, everyone (1yr, 4yr, & 5yr olds) at my house has been sick for a week or more. Started off with Croup, then colds, now everyone has bronchitis! I've been existing on about 2 hrs sleep a night. To top it off I got sick too.smileys/smiley11.gif
Anyway, got all the kids to doc and got meds, but my doc couldn't fit me in and wouldn't be able to see me til Monsmileys/smiley19.gif
but thanks to OP's I have a Z-Pack that will be here tomorrow a.m.!

Antibiotics have no effect on viruses, but what's worse is your are helping to create antibiotic-resistant bacteria smileys/smiley3.gif
But then again, your cold could have weakened you immune system and you do have a bacterial infection in your lungs.

ok, I really wouldn't take them if I wasn't sure I needed themsmileys/smiley2.gif
Whatever happened to Dr.'s calling in prescriptions? Mine wouldn't. I told him I knew what I had cause the pediatrician diagnosed my three kids and I had same, but he wouldn't even call it in without an OV.

How much money would your doctor make if he just called in a script for you? Answer your question? smileys/smiley4.gif

I know it's all about money, but it would be nice if it was all about me (the patient).

When the docto's take they Hypocritic oath (yes I spelled it that way intentionally) they vow to fleece you for money and your health care comes second. When you visit the doctor or the hospital for the very first time, what is the first question out of their mouth. "How will you be paying, do you have insurance?"
