How many times have you or your family members visited a doctor for a simple case of cold and ended up getting unnecessary, expensive branded medications and tests, or even antibiotics that you don’t need?
Antibiotics are one of mankind’s greatest medical inventions and has helped tide over many ailments.
Rampant use of antibiotics has come under radar of authorities for all the wrong reasons.
According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, antibiotics are losing their effectiveness due to unnecessary prescriptions and hence, highly recommends the use of antibiotics on proper prescription only. Given the background of antibiotic misuse leading to disease resistance, the most beneficial way is to consult physicians face-to-face or over the phone to ensure a proper balance between what is required and the best possible medical solution.
Evidence-Based Medicine is the only way that holds key to saving patients’ lives from unnecessary usage of antibiotics, thereby leading to unwanted long-term side effects.
