The media is full of articles about a judicious prescription of antibiotics by doctors so that their use doesn’t become ineffective after a time. It has been proved that antibiotics certainly have side effects as they are all chemical preparations and doctors too have come to accept this fact. But in the absence of recourse to alternative medicines like homeopathy and ayurveda to fight infections, prescription of antibiotics have become mandatory by allopathic practitioners and an indispensable evil to patients as they suffer from side effects despite taking ant acids and probiotics to alleviate them.
I wonder why researchers don’t focus on the above issue which is as important or more than coming out with greater variety of antibiotics though priced exorbitantly haven’t lessened their side effects.
