Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice when you are ill

As explained on this website, antibiotics are not a miracle cure for every illness and are not always the right solution for seasonal ailments. If you are ill, you should seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist. In any case, antibiotics can only be received on prescription. Be sure to ask these questions when visiting your doctor:

  • What is the doctor prescribing? Are they antibiotics?
  • Will antibiotics have an effect on my symptoms?
  • What are the doses and medication times I need to remember?
