0970..... *****warning***** - Antibiotics (Must Write)

Rating: 4.0

Reckless Doctors Prescribe Antibiotics Indiscriminately
Without even having a Blood Test, just on the Go

Do You know, Viral Infections have very less Medicines
Will subside in due course on its own automatically?

Antibiotics work only for Bacterial Infections
Not for Viral Infections, Virus escape Antibiotics easily

Many had bitter experience with Qualified Doctors
Prescribing Antibiotics indiscriminately

Antibiotics kill good Bacterias in Stomach
Results, GI upset, Diarrhea, Nausea,

Antibiotics have disastrous side effects
Impaired Liver, Damaged Kidneys are most important

Oflaxacin, Cifexime, Ampicillin, Penicillin are just a few
No accountability for Doctors, Indian Doctors specifically

Don't take Antibiotics unless double sure with blood tests
Indiscriminate usage may take a big toll in health, Life threatening

Ask your Doctors, if Antibiotics are must
Check Internet for side effects

Better believe Internet, Not Doctors alone
Many Doctors do Trial and Error Medication

Check www.nlm.nih.gov, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed
www.umm.edu/ency/, www.wrongdiagnosis.com etc for doubts

Nothing comes to light in India in Medical Field

Thanks for spreading the word on this. I hope people will be aware and stop trusting their doctors blindly. We must be informed about our bodies and alternative ways to cure our ailments.

This is a very relevant theme that you have handled well. It is an eye-opener to all of us. It is so vey true that one should not take antibiotics indiscriminately and especially out of ignorance. As a general rule, if fever is less than 101 degrees F, then it is best not to take any antibiotic as it is bound to be a viral infection that is self-limiting. If it exceeds that and continues to be so for more than a day, then it is a bacterial infection and it is better to seek medical help. Here again we shoud be wise to go in for milder antibiotics only if absolutely necessary. Fever is actually good for the body as it boosts the immune system - so even an antipyretic like paracetamol (Crocin/Calpol) is best avoided. Even these seemingly harmless drugs have side-effects in the long run. We should be open to alternative forms of medicine and naturopathy as well. And ultimately, prevention is better than cure, as they say. So we should eat healthy food, practise hygiene, build up our immune systems with natural vitamins from fruits and vegetables, get exercise, have a positive mental attitude, get good sleep and try to avoid stress or cope with it well by meditating, doing yoga etc.
