Sometimes I think some meds are over prescribed. Some don't need them but are told they do.

antibiotics are not given for what you mentioned.  My dd has yet to have antibiotics except at birth.  Our doctor will use all the time tested home remedies first like rest, plenty of fluids, etc for illnesses.

What the hell do antibiotics have to do with autism and ADHD?

Do they give meds for autism? I think most doctors don't over prescribe but i think a handful of parents look for doctors that will.

Antibodtics aren't used to treat any of those things ?
