New antibiotic rules just highlight the magic of the prescribing pad

Comment

Tom I'm afraid the magic of the prescribing pad is what has got us into this mess in the first place. It has created a society of doctor dependent people who cannot accept self limiting illnesses or take personal responsibility for their lifestyle related ailments. And before anyone jumps down my throat, it is not patients who are to blame. Doctors and the government have allowed this to happen.
