Abstract

This chapter is a conversation analytic study of patients’ complaints about cough during general practice consultations, which is among the most common reasons for prescribing antibiotics. Many of these infections tend to be viral, and so the antibiotic prescriptions may be completely ineffective for the individual patient, but pose a great risk for public health. This chapter looks into cases where patients reiterate the cough complaints following a non-severe diagnosis. This reiteration could be heard as pressure for antibiotics. However, the study concludes that patients do not necessarily intend this, and that doctors can assure them without the offering of a prescription.
