What you need to know about antibiotics?
Why do antibiotics not work?
Here is an example of one life situation. Ten-year-old Stasabyl discovered an E. coli. The doctor appointed him an antibacterial drug. Within a few days, Stas's mother turned to the doctor with a complaint that before this drug had always helped, but now it did not help. The doctor asked in surprise: "What does it mean always?". As it turned out later, my mother gave the child this medicine every time, when he was ill with a cold or flu.
Debriefing: The child did not recoverThanks to the antibiotic drug, but thanks to immunity. With viral infections and flu, antibiotics are not working. Frequent use of antibiotics can lead to resistance. That is, the microbes living in our body simply stop responding to it. Means, it is necessary to take a stronger drug. Also it is necessary to take into account the fact that most modern drugs act on pathogens of specific diseases. Only physicians know the specifics.
Self-administration of antibiotic, and otherMedicines, without reading the instructions - a waste of money. Only a doctor can take into account all sorts of consequences: an allergic reaction, exacerbation of chronic diseases, interaction with other medicines. Self-sufficiency can lead at best to an allergic reaction, asthma or urticaria, at worst - to serious problems with liver and ichokami. And this is not counting the oppressed microflora.
The full course of treatment is the cure for recovery!
Here is another example from life. Elena caught a cold and could not take a weekend at work. It came down to bronchitis. The doctor attributed in the middle of the week to drink an antibiotic. On the third day, the girl's condition improved dramatically: the temperature was asleep, weakness passed. Elena decided that she would drink the last pill of antibiotic and that the drug would end on this. Thinking about the intestinal microflora, she began to use yogurt. On the sixth day, the condition worsened: a violent cough began, and the fever again increased. Elena was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of pneumonia. I had to do injections.
Debriefing: Each medicine needs to drink as much as possible,As indicated in the instructions. Especially if it's an antibiotic. If you feel better, this is not a reason to cancel treatment. Each medicine has the ability to accumulate in the body, and when it reaches the desired level, only then it begins to function effectively. During reception of antibiotics it is necessary to drink yogurt for maintenance of lactobacilli, which live in the intestine. Also, one should not forget about allergic reactions. To avoid them, the doctor together with a santibiotic prescribes an antihistamine. But this does not always give a guarantee of one hundred percent that there will not be an allergy.
On a note! If you have a tendency to allergies, it is very important to choose the right medicine. To do this with minimal risk, it is recommended to pass a special blood test for antibodies to various antibiotics in advance. It is worth noting that the allergy is capable of being passed on to the offspring of children.
How does the antibiotic work?
Antibiotic is a strong drug thatDestroys microorganisms and microflora. He beats on pathogens that cause various infectious diseases: cystitis, tonsillitis, pneumonia and many others. Very often it is antibiotics that save our lives. But at the same time this medicine is not so "harmless." And all because it destroys everything: beneficial bacteria and pathogens. Recall that useful bacteria in our body perform an important role: strengthen the immune system, produce vitamins and enzymes, ensure the assimilation of minerals, regulate the absorption of hormones and fatty acids in the intestine. Thus, it turns out that the loss of these beneficial bacteria reduces our immunity.
Antibiotics is prescribed to everyone, both adults andChildren. Many doctors believe that it is sometimes better to be safe in this way, and that the benefit will bring more than harm. But if you prescribe antibiotics from simple infections, then in the future, a more serious infection, this remedy is no longer taken, you have to write out a stronger antibiotic.
What will help restore the intestinal microflora?
The action of antibiotic is manifested in eachdifferently. For one they do not cause serious harm. For others, taking antibiotics ends with exacerbation of chronic diseases, for example, thrush, allergies and so on. In order to minimize all these negative consequences, it is necessary to take probiotics together with antibiotics - Linex, Acipol, Bifiform, Bifidumbacterium, and others. These probiotics should replace the useful microorganisms that died. However, part of the useful new microorganisms and antibiotics kill yet on the way to the intestines. Therefore, probiotics should be taken several days after the end of the antibiotic course.
You can restore the microflora in other ways. For example, prebiotics are feeding for small and weakened detachments of lacto- and bifidobacteria. You can also drink the cursimbiotics - complex preparations, which contain live bacteria and nourishment for them (Bifido-Buck, Biovestin-Lakto, Maltidofilus).
Prebiotics are pieces of food that reachThe intestines are undigested and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria. Prebiotics can be found in ordinary foods: onions, garlic, dairy products, bread, bran, legumes, bananas, asparagus, chicory. You can also buy them for a vapteke - Lactofiltrum, Prelax, Lactusan.
Let's sum up the results
Antibiotic is one of the most useful and significantDiscoveries of the 20th century. But like any other potent drug, the antibiotic is not safe and its use can lead to the following consequences: weakening of the immune system, allergic reaction, violation of the natural microflora of the intestine, exacerbation of chronic diseases, and the onset of fungal diseases.
Antibiotics are addictive. If they are taken without any need and often, the microbe will be able to resist it. Therefore, to take this drug should be strictly according to the prescription of the doctor in the most extreme cases. If the case still reaches the antibiotic, then it must be drunk with a full course. Otherwise, the effect of the drug will be reversed. Along with the antibiotic, you also need to take probiotics, which will help maintain microflora and protect you from allergic reactions.
Antibiotics are constantly being improved, soThey are more effective and safe, and also give fewer side effects. Today, there are many drugs of narrow-minded action, which allows you to destroy a particular pathogen. Such antibiotics work softer than broad-spectrum antibiotics.
From the foregoing it follows that it is not the antibiotic itself that is dangerous, but its incorrect application.
