It does seem awfully convenient that you are given a prescription every time you visit the clinic with the pharmacy being at the same location, but I
am sure that some patients find it convenient, not having to run all over town to fill something, especially if they are not feeling well.
Just be bold next time you go, and the Dr. wants you to fill a prescription. In fact grill them about all the details. What you might want to do, if
you are that uncomfortable, is take the prescription some place else and ask the pharmacist at another location about it before filling it.
When all four of my kids were small, with the oldest being 4 and the youngest 6 month old twins, they all came down with conjunctivitis, aka pink eye.
I took them to the Dr. and they all had to take an antibiotic. Not sure how to spell it, but I think it was pink liquid amoxicillin. Anyway, pink
eye is really contagious. They kept passing it back and forth for weeks.
I'm not sure if the Dr. told you this, but make sure to wash their sheets, towels wash cloths, etc., and don't let them share.
I ended up getting the pink eye from the kids. My pink eye did not last as long, but I got what I thought was a really bad cold right afterwards that
did not go away for months. When I finally went to the Dr., I found out I had pneumonia, and the Dr. told me it could have started from the
conjunctivitis. I did not have to go into the hospital then, but I was out of work for a long time.
If the Dr. you saw recommended antibiotics, get them filled and make sure your kids take the whole prescription!
