Description

By Moira Dolan MD.

Antibiotics can be lifesaving, but they are so often prescribed without good reason that they generate more drug side effects than any other class of medicines. On a personal level, antibiotics can cause mild to deathly side effects.

Antibiotic overuse in the larger society has forced the widespread growth of drug resistant bugs, causing a global health crisis according to the World Health Organization.
In this latest in the series of No-Nonsense Guides, Dr. Dolan describes a rational approach to appropriate antibiotic use or avoidance. This handy reference for many of the most common symptoms and illnesses discusses antibiotic characteristics and side effects in easy-to-understand language. As with Dr. Dolan’s other SmartMEDinfo No-Nonsense Guides, this book is not ‘anti-drug’ but rather ‘pro-informed consent’ with the goal of empowering consumers to consider the risks and benefits of prescriptions for themselves.
