Antibiotics have saved hundreds of millions of lives. Therefore, in our time, they are among the most popular drugs. But what diseases do people treat with antibiotics?
The answers people give:
- Viral disease
- When the temperature is more than 38
- Upper respiratory infection
- The temperature does not decrease for more than three days
Which of these can actually be treated with antibiotics? And under any disease they are useless and even harmful?
For some reason, we perceive an antibiotic as an anti-cold drug. We forgot that there are various microorganisms that cause disease. There are viruses and there are microbes. Already tired of repeating that a virus antibiotics have no effect by definition. You probably know that. But ask the next question: what diseases viral? Well let's put a question: at what diseases it is possible and it is necessary to take antibiotics and when they are useless or in General dangerous?
Antibiotics have no effect on viruses
This question is too broad, so let's ask the Amateurs first. If we start to develop it further, we will see that the issue is much broader. Now where, it would seem, it is necessary to give antibiotics-it is necessary to wait. The problem is not even in their side effects, all the usual: diarrhea, diarrhea, dysbiosis, allergies.
This is serious medicine! Many of us suffer from hypertension, and we all drink certain drugs to reduce blood pressure. There are so many groups of antibiotics. Here is suppose such antibiotic as azithromycin or doxycycline. These are very popular drugs. Many accept them. But these drugs to drink with antihypertensive drugs cannot be.
Antibiotics should not be taken in conjunction with drugs to reduce blood pressure.
Many take a drug like warfarin, which thinns the blood. It is deadly to take it with antibiotics. An exception may be-the appointment of a doctor.
Antibiotics of the erythromycin group can provoke deadly arrhythmias.
Are antibiotics effective in 2019?
According to the laws of the genre, I had to talk about side effects later. But what I'm trying to tell you is that it's dangerous! The media is also talking about it - we are losing antibiotics as a medicine.
It was recently said that a woman in America had died. The reason was that its pathogenic microflora was resistant to all known antibiotics. All this is presented as news, in fact it is not news!
History has preserved the names of two people. One is a woman who was cured of severe sepsis with a single injection of penicillin. This was at the dawn, when only he was introduced in clinical practice.
The second man died from bacterial endocarditis. That was fifteen years ago. Then used all antibiotics, which only known medicine now. He was resistant to everything.
Outcome: this now show as news. Go to any intensive care unit in the city hospital. You will see young people dying because nothing works.
Non-contact antibiotics are addictive and they stop working
Prescription and its need to buy antibiotics
Now it is very common situation when all known antibiotics do not work on the patient. In addition, in some countries antibiotics can be bought without a prescription. Although it is not allowed by law. But pharmacies sell. This is the case when the severity of the laws is leveled by the non-binding nature of their execution.
It's not even about over-the-counter stuff. The problem is that the doctor prescribes antibiotics more often when it is not necessary than when it is necessary. And it's not just our doctors. In France, seventy percent of doctors prescribe antibiotics of no importance.
We are taught, if the child has a temperature (feels bad) wait for the morning and go to your doctor. Don't go to the hospital in the emergency room. You almost certainly sabugalite doctor (one bleeding, the second fracture) will prescribe an antibiotic.
You will drink it, then it will not help you. So do not go, so as not to fall for this situation. This must be remembered when the antibiotic does not help.
In what diseases Doxycycline should be used on an outpatient basis.
There are four situations when an antibiotic can be taken on an outpatient basis (not in a hospital):
Streptococcal angina is confirmed by a special smear. This angina, accompanied by high fever, swelling of the tonsils, enlarged lymph nodes. It's not so bad for the throat. She, too, will pass itself, as viral. But strep can cause complications to the kidneys, the heart. Given doxycycline for ten days. To prevent complications.
Another situation is urinary tract infections. These are your familiar cystitis, when you have to take a three-day course of doxycycline. It's only for infection. Basically, cystitis is non-infectious-there antibiotics will not help. In this case, the tests are normal. The number of visits to the toilet increases. And sometimes it hurts and blood. Anything can provoke it. I drank strong tea, ate spicy, drank alcohol, sat on a stone and became worse.
Bronchitis is no longer treated with antibiotics. Any bronchitis is usually a viral disease. Moreover, it can last up to three weeks. You're gonna cough a lot. And here, it would seem, it is necessary to give antibiotics, but we must wait.
You know, the problem of resistance is huge. We're losing the best medical invention of all time. Fleming discovered penicillin LINK in the forties of the twentieth century. About 70 years have passed since that time. And at the moment, the most progressive antibiotic, for example, doxycycline from pneumonia causes resistance (resistance) in one day. The morning drink in the evening ceased to operate.
The bacteria that multiply in us are passed on to other people. And already the person who never drank antibiotics-becomes infected with a bacterium from which nothing helps. Example, tuberculosis. We all know the resistant forms. Treat with antibiotic. It breeds resistance.
Not so long ago, five years ago, in South Africa (Togo fere) first discovered a special kind of tuberculosis. Initially, more than one antibiotic does not act on the bacilli of this tuberculosis. So it's a deadly disease. There is no cure. The most important thing is that it is not limited in any way today. Meeting with these bacteria can happen in the same new York. Air traffic with South Africa is established and not suspended. Therefore, the carrier of this Bacillus in the morning in Africa, and in the evening somewhere in San Antonio. Already in 80 countries reported cases of tuberculosis, including the United States.
You're afraid of Oncology or cardiology. Oncologist argues with cardiologist whose disease claims more lives. It's like two ants arguing on a powder keg. On a powder keg marked infection. Antibiotics are becoming impotent.
Antibiotics are useless. You don't make vaccines, maybe because you're stupid. We really become powerless. Given that antibiotics are contained in foods including meat. Plus, bacterial soap is used, which affects the change in the structure of bacteria. This all together provokes resistance.
Every year, new antibiotics are discovered, but bacteria have learned to develop resistance to them very quickly.
Given all of the above – you have to understand that antibiotics-it's not just a medicine. To his aid should be resorted to only in cases as described above. This will help not only you personally, but also society as a whole.
About the mutation and induction of used in bacteria, is also understandable. If you'll take an antibiotic for other purposes-it will not give a positive effect. In this case, it can provoke regression in the body. Remember in the body everything is interconnected.
Take the antibiotic as many days as you need. If you have started taking an antibiotic, do it according to the prescribed course. Take as many days as you need. And preferably ask your doctor how long the effect lasts. To know after what time to take the next dose. Otherwise, the bacteria against which the treatment is directed will have time to develop immunity. And then your treatment will not give a positive effect.
Do not try to treat the flu or virus with an antibiotic. It is not a bacterial disease and has a different nature. An antibiotic won't help. Here it is necessary to use antiviral or anti-influenza drugs.
At high temperatures, an antibiotic is not always used. You need to know the cause and then think about treatment.
Before taking an antibiotic, try to make an antibioticogram. This can help you with the choice of a particular drug. Because there are many groups and analogues that may be useless in your case. It is better to get the drug that will treat you. Otherwise, you will not receive treatment.
Do not take antibiotics for prevention or when you are not ill. You can't do that at all. This is a direct pathway to bacterial resistance. Thus you can make it so that at the fatal moment you find yourself without salvation.
Get vaccinated against flu and pneumonia! This can reduce the risk of these diseases. As a result – reducing the consumption of antibiotics and drugs in General. And this is very important for 2019.
