Publix Has Free Antibiotics

You may already know this, but since it is the beginning of cold/flu season, I wanted to remind you of the great deal that Publix has. With one child in daycare and two in elementary (cesspools of germs), our pediatrician has gotten to know us really well over the years. Publix gives away eight varieties of antibiotics. I take the list into my pediatrician's office and tell him to pick from the list if at all possible when the situation warrants an antibiotic. This works at the veterinarian's office as well. Just take your prescription to your local Publix and they will give it to you for free. You can also print the $4 prescription list that Walmart provides and take that to your pediatrician if the Publix free list is too limiting.

The list of Publix antibiotics is as follows:
-Amoxicillin
-Cephalexin
-Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim (SMZ-TMP)
-Ciprofloxacin (excluding ciprofloxacin XR)
-Penicillin VK
-Ampicillin
-Erythromycin (excluding Ery-Tab)
-Doxycycline Hyclate (capsules only)
