As long as you eat tainted vegetables, the antibiotics are free anyway, right?

Now we'll go the way of some European countries, where antibiotics are popped for every ailment from colds to mono. Perhaps Stop and Shop should make a doctor's rX a prereq.

A well-meaning idea, I suppose, but I hope it doesn't have unintended consequences.

They're probably not organic antibiotics, though. Processed antibiotics aren't good for you.

That's THE MOST STUPID by far thing anyone could do during flu season. Antibiotics are entirely backfiring as beneficial to anyone! Antibiotics are creating mutant all powerful bacteria that are increasing with sickening capability. Use oregano oil on the wounds and olive leaf as throat spray. Use natural antibacterial plant based proven effective bacteria killers and balancers only!!!
The MERSA and staph are a DIRECT result of antibiotic absolutes ideation incorrect and from big industry/ gigantic pharmacy misuse. Oregano is all powerful. Everyone enables the next generation to have more illness strands when you use anything else.

Free toothpaste & soap for poor people. You can't get those with food stamps.

Amoxil from http://trustedamoxicillin.info for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection: no side effects, gentle but efective. Feelings of relief began a few hours after the first pill.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

http://inhousegeneric.info very clear and informative site, simple ordering process and very fast delivery. All round excellent service - will use again.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
