How do you get extra to keep on hand?

Quoting Grumpylilpixy:

I keep antibiotics on hand it all started with teeth.. Then that problem was taken care of and I had some on hand when I came down with Horrid Strep. I started them as soon as I knew the lump in my throat wasn't going away and it was getting worse as the day wore on. I was miserable that evening so I started to take the antibiotics for 7 days and it went away before it turned into full strep.. UGH! But I only keep like Amoxicillin and so forth.  I don't keep like Z packs or anything.

No. I'm afraid of anything I'm not familiar with due to my past ear problems.

By law, it's illegal for any pharmacist to dispense medication that would normally be prescribed.

They can only advise you on OTC meds that can help you.

They don't prescribe antibiotics for ear infections anymore due to too many superbugs.

My girlfriend was allergic and gave me a big bottle of Erythromycin she couldn't take them.  Hubby had a neck injury and for some reason they gave him 20 Amox. So that is a brand new bottle and Then when I would get Infection in my wisdoms they would give them to me. 

So that is how we get them. Plus unless you are getting like Z packs. They give you more then you need.

No.  And since it's chronic you need to figure out the cause.  Eatting dairy triggers them for many.  Try going dairy free and see if that fixes the problem.  For myself my triggers are dairy, nuts, bananas, and chamomile.

Check out this book http://www.amazon.com/More-Amoxicillin-Preventing-Respiratory-Antibiotics/dp/1575663163/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359782048&sr=8-1&keywords=no+more+amoxicillin
