I'm checking but i have a more pressing question...the doctor said it was
a virus and then prescribed _antibiotics_?!?!? Are you certain a virus
was mentioned OR there was not also a bacterial infection mentioned OR
that the drug really is an antibiotic? The agent and the drug in no way
go together unless there _was_ some secondary bacterial infection. If there
were no bacteria involved then is it any wonder that there are so many
bacteria developing resistance to all our antibiotics when a doctor so
freely and uselessly prescribes such to "treat" a viral infection?
