Overview: Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for upper respiratory infections, even when they are likely due to viral etiologies, or will resolve just as quickly without antibiotics. Many clinicians believe convincing patients they do not need to take an antibiotic is time consuming and frustrating for both parties.
