People Save Antibiotics for Later Use, and it is Not Good

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

Many people in the United States hang on to leftover antibiotics and say that if they got sick, they’d use them without going to the doctor, a new study finds.

The findings are so problematic, it’s hard to even know where to begin. However, one of the main concerns is that this practice leads people to take the drugs when they might not need them, which may further the spread of resistance to antibiotics.

Dr. Larissa Grigoryan, an instructor of family and community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, said in a statement:

“When people self-diagnose and self-prescribe antibiotics, it is likely that the therapy is unnecessary, because most often, these are upper-respiratory infections that are mostly caused by viruses.”

Antibiotics do not kill viruses.

Moreover, if someone has “leftover” antibiotics, it means they didn’t take the full course prescribed to them, which may also further the spread of antibiotic resistance.

And not all antibiotics were created equal. If you choose to take leftover drugs, and you actually do have a bacterial infection, you might not be taking the right type of antibiotic to treat it.

    Agreed. Left overs means some idiot didn’t take the full course. Can you say “Superbug creators?”

    Get a used copy (Amazon) of The Nurse’s Drug Guide for proper drug applications, identify illness & treatments, side effects, contra-indicators etc…this can be bought used for a few bucks.

    (if new, perhaps as high as $40-60.)

    Stock up on a FULL, fresh supply, and put em in the freezer to keep em fresh for 10 years or longer. (fish & livestock antibiotics & ant-virals, from Ebay, etc.) Yes, it mostly comes out of Asia. (name anything that does NOT come from Asia?)

    Typical treatments are often 1 gram per day (divided into 3 or 4 equal fractional doses every 24hrs.) typically for 10-14 days. Worse infections can require 2 grams per day, multiple drugs, longer terms, etc.
    Get the book, follow the rules.

    Forget about the big, fat, PDR. It’s not half as useful as the Nurse’s Drug Guide.

    Many bugs have multi-resistence to every drug, but if it’s life or death, you’ll be desperate to try everything.

    Don’t forget the nano-silver, oregano oil, ginger, garlic etc etc.

    No matter how healthy you are, in a 100 years you’re still gonna be dead, so don’t take everything so serious. Keep a sense of humor and face death like it’s normal (because it IS normal.)
