Customer Question
I would like to...

I would like to see about getting an antibiotic to clear up sinus and bronchial infection

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

Since Monday morning, I woke up with sore throat and slight laryngitis. Tuesday I had fever and coughing. Sinuses drain and hacking produce green gunk

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have MS and been dealing with the end of a 2+ month long flare up, and was on high levels of steroids during that period, plus on a large cocktail of prescriptions for MS and nerve damage. So my immune system is very low

ok.
Doctor: Dr. A, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

We unfortunately cannot provide antibiotics through JustAnswer. We are only here for advice. If you are looking for a prescription, I can provide some lower cost ways for you to try to obtain that.

That's ok. I thought this was the program through my employer.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No thank you
Doctor: Dr. A, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

No, sorry. For a prescription, you can try to speak to a doctor through a website like Teladoc or DoctorsonDemand. Otherwise, you can see your regular doctor. Hope that helps.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
