Do I Really Need an Antibiotic?


antib

 There is much discussion around regarding the use of antibiotics and no doubtedly they can save lives in certain bacteria causing conditions such as pneumonia and meningitis.

Anitbiotics, however do not work for many common illness such as colds and 'flu as these are spread by viruses which antibiotics will not kill.

Taking antibiotics unnecessarily can lead to needless side-effects and the development of antibiotic resistance: this means that some antibiotics will not work when they are really needed for example in MRSA.

As a practice we have identified that we are prescribing far more antibiotics than other practices in the area. As a result we are all making sure that we only prescribe antibiotics when absolutely necessary to avoid any problems in the future.

You may notice that your Doctor suggests other ways of managing your illness but be assured that you will receive antibiotics if you really need them.

 If you are prescribed antibiotics, take your dose as and when you're meant to and always complete your course of medication even if you feel better after a few days.
