as my wife sees more and more patients from other physicians and physicians assistants, she is definitely seeing a lot of medicine being prescribed out of laziness or from catering to the patients desire for something to take.
as for the OP, just be sure to finish the antibiotics. from what my wife tells me, if you don't it increases your chances of that drug losing its effectiveness in the future. and the next level drugs are more expensive and have more side effects.
