Misuse of antibiotics puts us all at risk (click on this link)
ANTIBIOTICS DO NOT TREAT VIRAL INFECTIONS, LIKE COLDS AND FLU.
Taking antibiotics when you don't need them speeds up antibiotic resistance.
Antibiotic resistant infections are more complex and harder to treat.
They can affect anyone, of any age, in any country.
Think twice. Seek advice.
Antibiotics aren't always the answer. Always seek the advice of a healthcare
professional before taking antibiotics.
Our time with antibiotics is running out.
Anitibiotics are in danger of losing their effectiveness due to misuse and
overuse, and in many cases they aren't even needed.
The rise of antibiotic resistance is leading to untreatable infections which
can affect anyone.
Without urgent action we are heading for a future in which minor injuries
and infections could once again kill!
Antibiotics are a precious resource, so it is important to get the right advice before taking them. This not only ensures you and your family get the best treatment, responsible use of antibiotics will also help reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance
