paragraph about cialisSome infections may not need antibiotics, a study suggests

According to a recent study, some bacterial respiratory infections may not need antibiotics, including Amoxil (amoxicillin). The study involved 834 adult patients. Researchers have found out that the illness course of bacterial lower respiratory tract infection is generally mild and uncomplicated. Furthermore, it is similar to that of nonbacterial lower respiratory tract infection, soit is not necessary to prescribe antibiotics immediately.

On the other side, antibiotics are needed if there is concern for pneumonia, researchers say. Amoxicillin is a penicillin-relatedantibiotic that fights bacteria, so it is used to treat not only pneumonia, but also such infections as tonsillitis, bronchitis, gonorrhea, and many others. Take itexactly as prescribed by your doctor. Also take the whole-term course, because your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated, specialists warn.

How do antibiotics work and affect your body?

These medications destroy or slow down the growth of bacteria. While some bacteria are good for us, others are really dangerous. Among illnesses caused by bacteria are for example tuberculosis, salmonella, syphilis, and some forms of meningitis. Keep in mind that antibiotics are not effective against viruses. Anyway, antibiotics like Amoxilcan save lives when used properly.

The problem is that antibiotics are being overusedworlwide. It causes the growing number of bacterial infections which are becoming resistant to medications. So, health organisations are willing to reduce the use of antibiotics for conditions that are not serious. Antibiotics-resistant bacteria, or so-called "superbugs", are challenging to treat, and are becoming an increasing cause of disability and death worldwide.
