whats-up-docDon’t they trust you? Why are we as patients being instructed not to ask our Doctor for antibiotics as they may not be necessary? Surely our Doctor or Doctors will know whether or not a specific drug is appropriate and prescribe accordingly? Of course it could suggest a lack of faith in our Doctors ability to say “no” when faced with a demanding patient and if that is the case then it’s Doctors that need counseling, not their patients.
I would imagine that Doctors must feel aggrieved at the lack of trust being demonstrated in their ability to prescribe appropriately no matter how difficult the situation. In any case, there soon wont be much point in asking for antibiotics, as they become increasingly ineffective, with no replacement drugs likely in the immediate future.

Make with the carrots, Doc at least they support the immune system.
