I went to urgent care again tonight. I have strep. Again. This is the second time in 14 days.

Suck.

1) Did you take all your medication the first time?

2) Did they give you the same medication this time?

I had amoxicillin the first time and took all 20 pills over the course of 10 days.

This time they gave me something different: Duricef.

I didn't want to say it the last time, but I will this time. When I was in college, I went to the Purdue health center three times within a month for strep. The first two times they gave me antibiotics. The third time they called it "Mono".

That would really suck because I had mono last year too.

Ed - I did the exact same thing while at Purdue, except the third time they wanted to take my tonsils out. I went to a different doctor, got a different med, and was fine after that.

Tim, amoxicillin is an old medication and what you had may have been resistant to it. The new med is a little stronger. But seeing as you had mono last year...

Well, good luck with the new med.

I went to the Purdue Health Center for a cold and they required a rectal exam. In a closet. How unprofessional!
