Hard not to agree with you, and you reminded me of the last time I went to the doctor. I had a viral problem (don't remember specifics, it's been too long). The doctor offered me an antibiotic, which I said no to and asked why he offered. He said that many people ask for it because it makes them feel like they got something to help. He said he never takes them. I assume he doesn't say no to the people because he could lose a patient and because they could go to another doctor to get the antibiotics anyway. It is just strange to me that someone would ask for an antibiotic for something viral, and that the doctor would say yes.

Your best hope with the norovirus is that you are one of the approx 30% of people who are asymptomatic once being infected.
The ingredient is Benzethonium Chloride.
