While it's true that their are some strains of antibiotic resistant organism, you aren't taking enough to cause a problem. Complete you course, as not finishing the meds is one of the main reasons that resistance is a problem. Also antibiotics aren't trashing your immune system, they are simply assisting it to kill the infection.

I agree with the person above me, but eat pasta, that helps energy level and it's easy to burn. Eat lots of fruits and vegtables, especially multicolored ones, that means that they have like two kinds of vitamins and stuff.

Taking lots of antibiotics (and taking them improperly -- not finishing a course for example or skipping doses) can breed resistent bacteria which can be dangerous. One of the best things you can do for your body is to taken a proven, effective immune booster to get your system working on its own to fight off germs and illness. My family takes Immune Alert and loves it. It's made from an all-natural baker's yeast extract (beta glucan) that gets your immune system working better and faster. Because Immune Alert merely primes the individual parts of the immune system to work better and does not directly act on any bacteria, you don't have to worry about creating resistent organisms. Go to www.immunealert.com and get a free trial now!! I think you'll be happy that you did.

keep up wit ur doses, finish the whole course and if u want to be extra careful take a multi vitamin. taking all of those anti biotics isnt dangerous for you or ur immunity or ur doctor wouldnt have given them to you!! u shouldnt have many symptoms sometimes ppl get headaches and a bit of nausea but thats normal. also taking a long course of anti biotics can cause vaginal thrush. dont panic!!!! if your one of those ppl its easily treated just visit your pharmacist or doctor for more advice.

This is a very good question. The answer to this is not easy to answer in a short paragraph. First off, Antibiotic resistance is NOT the result of over prescribing antibiotics in the cummunity only, although it is a large portion of it. In general, antibiotic resistance is the result of the overuse and misuse of antibiotics in humans as well as animals. There has been a lot of scrutiny placed on the use of antibiotics in production animals. This is a good topic for another question and I won't get into it here. Now lets get to your example. Individuals with a prinary viral infection can be susceptible to a secondary bacterial infection where normally the bacterium wouldn't cause an infection on its own. The individual's immune system is weakened due to the viral infection, thereby unable to fight off the bacterial infection. A good example of this can be seen in poutlry. E. coli is the most common cause of bacterial infections in production poultry, but is normally a secondary infection after the birds are first infected with a virus. Now to get to your question. Giving antibiotics to someone with a viral infection would help prevent a secondary bacterial infection. But the problem is that, as you pointed out, this is a potential infection isn't currently seen. As I am sure you know, antibotic resistance is the result of overuse and misuse of antibiotics. So while giving an antibiotic to an individual may or may not be beneficial to the individual, the continued use of this pratice will lead to more resistant bacteria (which has and is already happening). So, although you may (big if involved there) be helping the individual short term, in the long run you are hurting the population. Again, this is just a small example. There is no way we could get into the ins and outs of this topic here. A good book to read on the subject is The Antibiotic Paradox by Stuart Levy.
