Did You Know That You Can Overuse Antibiotics?

Overuse of antibiotics can lead to "superbugs" (bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics). Two of the main causes for this are:

1) taking antibiotics when they are not necessary, and;
2) not finishing an antibiotic as prescribed.

To avoid these problems, don't insist on antibiotics if you doctor tells you they are not needed AND if antibiotics are prescribed...FINISH THE PRESCRIPTION AS DIRECTED!!!
