the doctor i love

Plague Watch 2007 continues on. I went to my doctor today. It’s been the only time I’ve seen her for something that didn’t have to do with The Accident of 2006.

Six weeks of cold symptoms scare doctors a little bit, but not enough to do anything besides give me a little Zithromax. After I described my phlegm in great detail, she advised me to take Sudafed during the day for the snotty nose. What kind of Sudafed you ask? According to my doctor, “get the kind behind the counter. It’s the kind you can make meth with.”

SCORE!

    Go read the wikipedia entry on Phenylephrine, notably the passage, “Several studies suggests that the 10 mg dose of phenylephrine used as a substitute for pseudoephedrine is no more effective than a placebo.”

    Screw the fake stuff.

    Hey, I’ve been sick for 5 weeks…of course, I’ve had two rounds of antibiotics and a positive strep test!
