While antibiotics are effective in fighting bacterial infections, it is essential to be aware of their potential side effects, which can be harmful to health.
Side Effects of Antibiotics:
Another change is thrombocytopenia, a low level of platelets, which can slow down blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding.
This means that the body becomes so accustomed to these drugs that they may become ineffective in treating serious infections when needed.
There is a possibility of allergic reactions to antibiotics. These reactions can range from mild to severe and may require immediate medical attention.
Symptoms of allergies may include difficulty in breathing, rashes, swollen tongue, and throat.
Many antibiotics can cause digestive problems or other gastrointestinal side effects. These may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.
Taking antibiotics in excessive amounts can have an impact on the kidneys and may lead to kidney problems.
Disruption of Healthy Bacteria:
Excessive or unnecessary use of antibiotics can disrupt the balance of healthy bacteria in our bodies. This can lead to various serious health problems.
Ways to Prevent Antibiotic Resistance:
Seek Medical Advice:
Always consult a doctor before taking antibiotics. They can recommend the most appropriate antibiotic for your specific condition.
Follow the Prescribed Dosage:
Take antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor and adhere to the recommended dosage.
