1 Rule. No self!This applies to all those who are not behind there six years in medical school and several years of therapeutic practice.If you could do one reading instructions to the drugs and the search for reviews on the Internet, doctors almost did not have to deal with the complications of many diseases is quite harmless ...

2 Rule. Tell your doctor not only about the symptoms.Inform him that you do not agree whether other drugs, and if you are taking - something from nothing.Especially do not be silent, if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.Information about this will help your doctor choose a medication with minimal risk of adverse effects.

3 Rule .Everything seems to have long learned that antibiotics are powerless against viruses.This means that all of the viral infection, including such "popular" as colds and flu, require different treatment.Antibiotics only fight bacterial infections, the main features of which are:

  • pus;
  • high temperature for a long time (3 days);
  • Ā«undulatingĀ» the disease: for some time the disease can pull back, but then comes back with a bang.
  • high ESR in the blood count, high white blood cell count in the blood.If the body began to intensively produce white blood cells (blood cells that can kill foreign organisms), then we can talk about the infection.

Rule 4. Even if no doubt that the cause of the illness was the infection, not the virus or, for example, stress, should clarify what it is.To do this, the doctor prescribes specific tests.

5 Rule. Do not insist on your appointment "very strong" antibiotics.Give your immunity the opportunity to do what he could.Otherwise, the body will continue to rely on outside help and just unlearn fight harmful infections themselves.In addition, strong antibiotics kill any microorganisms on its path, including useful.A life with the microflora in the gut much nicer than without ...

6 Rule. disease itself - a lot of stress to the body.But, oddly enough, a course of antibiotics - the test is not less.In addition, together with the pathogenic bacteria body parted ways with many very necessary for normal functioning, antibiotics often provoke allergic reactions.

From the above it follows that:

  • not be amiss to make allergy tests for sensitivity to drugs, especially if they are assigned in the form of injections;
  • bear a double burden will body parallel reception of antihistamine (antiallergic) drugs and probiotics - funds intended to compensate for the loss of beneficial intestinal microflora.Protect from indigestion will also help to dairy products.If they are not part of your usual diet, try to drink them at least 1-2 weeks after a course of antibiotics.

7 Rule. Diet.Fatty, fried, smoked, canned food, alcoholic drinks and acidic fruits - the one more load to the liver and the digestive system even completely healthy person.Therefore, you should exclude them from your diet at least for a time, preferring easily digestible foods such as porridge, boiled or steamed vegetables and white bread.

8 Rule .Nablyudayte for their well-being during the course of treatment with antibiotics.Your condition should start to change for the better in the course of 3 days.If it does not - tell your doctor, he will choose another drug.

Rule 9. undoubted reason for the reference to the doctor is also the occurrence of allergic reactions (skin rashes, itching), nausea.

Rule 10. very important.If you start a course of antibiotics, and everything has gone well, and now the temperature with coughing, weakness and headache was gone ... continue taking the assigned antibiotic.It is necessary to drink a full course of medication, it usually ranges from 5 to 10 days, the duration is determined by the attending physician.Antibiotics - not pills from pain in the abdomen that stop drinking as soon as the pain goes away.What symptoms eased, means first of all is weakened and microorganisms, causing them.But weak - it does not mean completely died.Always remain a number of very resistant bacteria that can multiply again if you stop taking the antibiotics early.That is, by the way, is formed by the notorious resistance to infections modern old drugs.

Rule 11. For the same reason it is not recommended to experiment with the dosage, frequency and multiplicity of reception.Many people seeking to avoid side effects, arbitrarily reduce the dosage in two, or even three times, thus contributing to the development of bacterial immunity to the drug.

Rule 12. Like many drugs, antibiotics are taken at regular intervals, the duration of which depends on the number of times a day, when it is necessary to take an antibiotic.If 4 times a day - mean every 6 hours, 1 time - every day strictly same time.This is to maintain the same concentration of antibiotic in the blood.

Rule 13. Each drug has its own characteristics, so read the instructions carefully.Such antibiotics like oxacillin, chloramphenicol and erythromycin, best taken before meals, and some, such as tetracycline, can not be combined with milk.In general, it is desirable to drink antibiotics pure non-carbonated water.

Rule 14. It is rather a recommendation.Taking antibiotics, be prepared for the fact that while you sweat heavily.Therefore, in the selection of clothing for the street (unless, of course, so you need to go out in a disease state) should be preferred natural fabrics and strongly guard against wind and drafts.

Rule 15. Do not get sick!
