I saw a post made by someone regarding the use of veterinary grade penicillin on themselves. has anyone done this? I need some quick answers. Feel free to e mail if you prefer.

I would advise against it, I have known folks that treated themselves with vet meds, given to animals they are ok, but our metabolism is different. I hope you get to feeling better, sorry to see you leave, you and a few others took quite a beating last month. Thanks for answering the address request the other day. That situation was and is tragically disheartening. Take care of yourself.

According to my husband, an ER doctor, you would be taking a great risk using veterinary medicine on people as they are not as pure, as regulated, nor as closely monitored as people medicine. Plus do you know what exactly you are treating or are you just guessing? Do you know what other medicines or foods might affect your dosage? Do you know what other symptoms or side-effects to watch for? How much is your health or life worth?

According to my wife, an RN, and farm girl with animal experience, penicillin is penicillin - The purity is probably the same. HOWEVER the strength is not the same. The dosages will not be the same. Penicillin is not tetracyclene. Penacillin in any form is not a medication for a cold - colds are caused by a virus!

I think they were using tetracyclene.

I have a friend who tells me that when he and his brothers were growing up his Dad would put powdered penicilin in a small paper bag, shake it up, and have anyone with a respiratory infection 'suck up' the dust in the bag. He says it would really knock a chest cold. These days Family Services would probably take the kids away if they found out!

I was actually considering giving myself an injection to knock out a sinus infection. I think I'll ask my vet, he'll temm me. It's horrible not having insurance. By the way......

I have made a decision to kind of take a break from the internet for awhile. Couple of reasons. I spend too much time online, for one thing, the other thing is I can't get a local access number and each time I sign on is a toll call. I will be back one day, just not sure when. Best wishes to you all, and thanks for your answers.
