I have a tooth that has been bothering me on and off for the past month so I finally decided to bite the bullet (pardon the pun) and make a dentist appointment.  As it turns out, I needed a root canal but because of the infection in my tooth the dentist could only do part of the procedure.  I was put on an antibiotic and told to come back in a few weeks when the infection had cleared up.  After filling the prescription, the pharmacist explained I was to take one pill three times a day.  Today as I was taking my medication I looked at the bottle and read the directions:
 Take one pill three times daily by mouth. 

By mouth?  Really?  Maybe someone should have mentioned that to me before I started taking them.
