are you antibiotic aware?
Most illnesses that have cold/flu-like symptoms are viral and do not require antibiotics for treatment.
All antibiotics should be taken as prescribed until completed. Not finishing a course of antibiotics increases antibiotic resistance, making them less effective.
Cold symptoms can last 10-14 days. Length of illness does not always mean antibiotics are needed.
Antibiotics can have several side effects, making it even more important to not take them when they are not needed.
