In the changing season, not only children but also adults are falling ill. Many types of patients including cold, including cold, fever, and dengue malaria are reaching hospitals in hundreds today. At the same time, there are many people who, seeing the symptoms, are consuming antibiotics and paracetamol by themselves from medical stores without consulting the doctor. Many such cases are coming in hospitals in which patients are having liver-related problems after recovering from the disease. According to health experts, this method of self-medication can be very dangerous.
Microbiologist Dr. Ritika of Felix Hospital Noida says that antibiotics (antimicrobials) should not be used without the doctor's advice. This is getting very harmful. It is very important that the doctor should complete the course in the number of days and in the quantity that the doctor has prescribed. Complete the course even if you are feeling better after using the medicine because taking the medicine initially brings relief to the patient's body, but the microorganism causing the infection is not completely destroyed.
By leaving the course of medicine in the middle, these micro-organisms gradually acquire resistance to that medicine, and the next time a person falls ill, that medicine is not completely effective. Since antimicrobial resistance or antimicrobial resistance is a condition in which disease-causing microbes, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, become resistant to drugs.
In common parlance, antimicrobial resistance is the ability of that microorganism to gain resistance to the drug used to treat infections caused by viruses, bacteria, etc. As a result, standard treatments are ineffective or less effective, and this can lead to the spread of disease and death. Due to less effectiveness of medicines, this infection remains in the body, and the risk of spreading to others remains. This increases the cost of treatment and there is a possibility of an increase in mortality.
Never forget these things while taking antibiotics
, Do not take these medicines for every disease and problem
, It is important to know what the infection is like, and what caused it, after that take these medicines only on the advice of the doctor.
, The dose and duration of antibiotics should be fixed.
, Once antibiotics are taken, it is very important to complete the course. If left in the middle, it will not be effective next time.
, If there is any problem related to the kidney and liver, then before taking antibiotics, do consult a doctor.
These symptoms emerge after taking unnecessary antibiotics in the body
, feeling nauseous or dizzy
, diarrhea or abdominal pain
, allergic reaction

Complaint of increasing inflammation in the liver
Dr. DK Gupta, MD of Felix Hospital, says that the number of patients complaining of liver inflammation has increased rapidly in the hospital for some time. The liver can stop working due to an increase in inflammation in the liver. By taking antibiotics in inappropriate quantities and by making combinations with any medicine without a doctor's advice, it causes harm instead of benefit. Often their effect is seen on the liver and kidney. Antibiotics should be taken only for bacterial infections. Even then, after all the investigations, the doctor feels the need for it for the patient. The World Health Organization has identified antimicrobial resistance as one of the top 10 threats to global health. At the same time, due to antibiotics, the risk of other problems has also increased.
