Friday Freebie: Antibiotics
With winter comes illness...unfortunately. And, while we're always anxious to feel better, sometimes the answer isn't what we think it is. Often, what's at the root of an illness is a virus -- something that has to run its course, in its own, often painfully slow, time. While we can take over-the-counter remedies to ease symptoms and hopefully feel at least a little better, that's all we should be taking when it comes to viruses.

Doctors know this, and I suspect that many of you do, too. But, when we feel awful, we want quick solutions and so we hope for that magic prescription that will make it all better. Unfortunately, in the long run, the rush to antibiotics not only doesn't make things better, it actually makes things worse.

Old news? Then spread the word. Much better than spreading germs. 

And, may you have no need of this information this cold and flu season.
