Stupid Human Tricks
Taking Fish Antibiotics Isn't Wise, Say Experts, Unless You've Got Tail Rot
or Body Slime (Washington Post)
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A37306-2002Aug19.html
Here's a new one: Guy with a bad sinus infection decides to treat it
himself. Buys blister packs of penicillin and other antibiotics -- not at a
drugstore but at a pet store. Takes medicines formulated for fish that don't
require a prescription. Gets worse. Breaks down and goes to a clinic. For
humans.

perhaps I should stop sniffing the isoflourane, injecting the fentanyl/droperidol, and and drinking the enrofloxacin at work.

Over the years, I have know of a few people that regularly used vet. meds to treat themselves. They even had information (I couldn't vouch for its accuracy, though) regarding conversions in dosage to human doses (apparently based on 'filler' components).
