I am really in need of your help Teri...
 
My DH has really bad allergies.  His doctor has me so angry because all he does is prescribe him antibiotics.  My hubby has actually "shopped" for doctors that rx antibiotics without blinking.  He swears that they help and do not hurt him.  I know and I know most everyone else knows that he is hurting himself by constantly taking these but he doesn't think so.
 
I know you are very good at finding articles and I have found a few however none that scream "DANGER" skull so he reads them with a grain of salt and has the "whatever, whatever" attitude.  If you don't have time, it is more than fine... I'm just so frustrated about this and being a worried wife. sad

 

 

 

Altered the title just a tad...lol  Hugs, Teri :)

Hi Des and Welcome! tongue
 
I am sorry to hear that with all the news stories out today about the overuse of antibiotics that your husband continues to believe they are helping him.  sad I've found a couple of links for you & your husband to look at and I hope help to persuade him that he is really possibly endangering himself!
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

Thanks Teri... you are the best!!! ... and so resourceful :)

You know it is sad that he doesn't get it. His pediatrician (which was his doctor until age 28 LOL) I believe is what got him started believing this, its sad that there are still a few doctors that will script these without caution. These are great, I'm going to print these out for him and I will follow him around reading them to him if I have to LOL.
