It is no secret that doctors over prescribed antibiotics for decades, a patient has the right to educate themselves and ask for explanations.
Antibiotics or other drugs?
Antibiotics dosages are pretty standard for common things like strep.

Funny you should say that. Strep is one of them but who wants to take the chance. It could get a lot worse.

My kid won't take antibiotics. It's a nightmare each time. We've been begging for the shot, but they haven't been willing to give it.

Eta, in 08701 the pharmacies offer an option to add flavor to the meds...

Apparently they reduced the wait times of MRIs to about 30 days ..... if you want to come in at 3am to do it.

They're just trying to keep your kid from getting autism.

Some kids won't take meds no matter the flavor.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It's not a vaccine, it's real antibiotics, just more potent and better absorbed (I presume).

I guarantee you that most of the antivaxers don't give antibiotics whether a shot or oral.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

They get roots and herbs and whatever.

No, they feed them random chemical and biological substances, which have clear dangerous side effects, and occasionally work, but frequently don't, and are sold by huge corporate conglomerates who have insiders in the FDA and who got a tax break last week.

That's why Dr. Shanik won't give antibiotics for strep without fever. (Dr. Shanik has by far the biggest pediatric practice in Lakewood)
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
