I went to an express clinic due to limited time and I was misdiagnosised with an upper respiratory infection instead of bronchitis. The medicine I was prescribed was not strong enough for the germ I had. I ended up sick 3 more weeks.

  • Bronchitis is almost always viral just like an upper respiratory infection - it just takes longer to clear. If you got antibiotics for either one, you really were only putting unnecessary drugs in your system.
