Antibiotic Overdose

Just to share with you all one article that I found. Lately memang macam trend sangat doctor likes to prescribe antibiotic. Demam sikit antibiotic, batuk sikit antibiotic, even for babies/kids! Alhamdulillah so far Zahra takde ambil antibiotic even though pernah prescribed twice (for cough and fever) because since I was a little girl, my mom very sceptic with antibiotics. It's like last resort for us if the sakit didn't go away. So I practice the same, I just wait and observe Zahra..kalau bagi ubat biasa tak jalan baru la nak bagi the antibotic.

I understand that some doctors give the antibiotic because they want to kill the bacteria once for all, but on the other hand, you won't develop your own antibody to fight the bacteria. Sampai bila nak makan antibiotic right?

I noticed this when Zahra got her fever dulu, the doc gave her antibiotic then I asked what type, for what etc..he said try dulu this one sbb tak sure demam Zahra x surut kenapa, if the antibiotic doesn't work, we'll try another type. Like whatttt? So macam try and error kan? Alhamdulillah the fever went away a few days after that without the antibiotic.

Anyway, if there's a need, you still have to take it. It's just that it's too common now and seems fishy to me. Macam nak senang, ok lah...u makan ni, then lega, done. In the future we'll think later apa jadi. Don't you think prevention is better than cure? Below is the full article:-
