I've recently come down with a bad case of tonsillitis. Upon visiting the doctor for diagnosis and testing and whatnot, she had prescribed me penicillin VK and Tylenol. I'm not touching the Tylenol.
However, I DO want to get better sooner than later for a number of reasons. I never really take pharmaceutical drugs and so far I have mostly been making myself garlic soups and eating dark green veggies. I've tried looking online for the information that the pharma's DONT want you to know, but, as you can imagine, its hard to find.
So would there be any short/long term damage to my body by taking the antibiotic? I'm not allergic, and the only stuff I've read about talks about increased energy in people. I'm a bit of a naturopath, so information from that sphere would benefit me most.
