Prescribe myself Biaxin for Sinusitis?

Recommended Posts

Ethical dilemma- I understand doctors can write prescriptions for minor and emergency conditions for family. Does this translate into me being able to write a prescription for myself for Biaxin, a common antibiotic for a mild case of sinusitis? For me, it would mean avoiding sitting in the only local walk in clinic and ER in the town I work in- where I would be seen as a pt by all of my preceptors and pts. Not only do I want to avoid hours of waiting, I see this illness as a sign of "weakness" and am sort of embarrassed that I got run down enough to get it and want it treated.


My gut feeling is no, but my prescription pad is right beside me and it is tempting...
