    What are Antibiotics and how should you use them?

    Antibiotics
    What are Anti-Biotics and how should you use them?

    Antibiotics are incredibly useful and crucial drugs when taken correctly. Bacterial infections and illnesses are combated by them. Penicillin, tetracycline, streptomycin, and chloramphenicol are well-known antibiotics. Sulfa medicines, often known as sulfonamides, are antibiotics.

    Different antibiotics operate against different infections in different ways. Antibiotics all have drawbacks, but some are significantly more hazardous than others. Antibiotics must be chosen and used with extreme caution.

    Antibiotics come in a variety of forms, each with its own set of brand names. This can be perplexing. The most significant antibiotics, on the other hand, are divided into a few categories:

    Antibiotics: Examples by brand names (Generic names)

    1. PENCILINS Pen-V-K
    2. AMPICILLIN Penbritin
    3. TETRACYCLINES Terramycin
    4. SULFONAMIDES Gantrisin
    5. STRETOMYCIN Ambistryn
    6. CHLORAMPHENICOL Chloromycetin
    7. ERYTHROMYCIN Erythrocin

    Ampicillin is a penicillin that kills a wider range of microorganisms than regular penicillins. Try reading the fine print on the bottle or box if you have a brand-name antibiotic and aren’t sure which category it belongs to.

    Never use an antibiotic until you understand what group it belongs to, what diseases it treats, and how to use it properly.

    ALL ANTIBIOTICS USE RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES

    All About Antibiotics - Gastrointestinal Society

    • Do not use an antibiotic if you are unsure how to use it or what infections it can treat.

    • Only take antibiotics that have been prescribed for the ailment you’re trying to get rid of.

    • Be aware of the dangers associated with using the antibiotic and follow all recommended precautions.

    • Only take the antibiotics in the prescribed dose—no more, no less. The dose is determined by the ailment as well as the patient’s age or weight.

    • Continue to take antibiotics until the disease is totally gone, or for at least two days after the fever and other symptoms of infection have gone away. (Some illnesses, such as tuberculosis and leprosy, require treatment for months or years after the patient has recovered.) Follow each illness’s directions.)

    • If the antibiotic produces a skin rash, irritation, difficulty breathing, or any other significant side effects, the individual should stop taking it immediately and never take it again.
