    Loved your book years ago. Just found your website and it is already helpful. Have 11 year old with recurring Asthma/sinus infections and rounds of amoxicillin with no real success. Read your article from the AMA on ammoxicillins ineffectiveness. Dr. wrote me a script for it again, I said he needs something else. Cefdinir (10 scary hours of finding it hard to breathe with abuterol and nebulizer) the Cefdinir kicked in! Second night he breathed so quietly (no more freight train) I had to keep checking to make sure he was ok. He dropped his head below his shoulders and no pounding pain.
    THANK YOU! He would still be sick and going probably for another round of useless amoxicillin. The pharmacist said at some point they will just stop offering it because it has become ineffective. He is better because I went to your site for information.
