Antibiotics for a cold? Codeine for a cough? What the hell doctor are these people going to?

I agree with you about the antibiotics. Colds are caused by a *virus*... antibiotics aren't going to help (unless maybe he also has a secondary sinus infection, which is bacterial). Codeine, however, is still recommended in the case of non-productive coughs.

Ok, actually, he *does* have a sinus infection. That's what the antibiotics are for.

Codeine is a cough suppressant. The antibiotics were for the sinus infection.
