Antibiotic resistance - online pharmaciesIndividuals are becoming increasingly more resistant to antibiotics as the years pass, and while researchers are racing against the clock to find a cure to antibiotic resistance, nothing has been presented. In fact, there hasn’t been a new ‘class’ of antibiotics invented since the 1980s.

Here are 5 things that you ought to know about antibiotics and your health:

  1. The World Health Organization claims that tuberculosis antibiotic resistance is responsible for over 150,000 deaths every year.
  2. They World Health Organization has also stated that as a result of antibiotic resistance, in the future ‘many common infections will no longer have a cure and, once again, could kill unabated.’
  3. Many of us go straight to antibiotics when fighting the flu or other common illnesses, but antibiotics are also crucial during surgery, cancer treatment, and organ transplants. Think of the devastation that comes with widespread antibiotic resistance. It’s horrifying, don’t you think?
  4. Sir Alexander Fleming, who is largely credited with making the greatest contribution to the discovery of antibiotics, forewarned the dilemma of antibiotic resistance. He stated in his Nobel Prize winners’ lecture that ‘it is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin’.
  5. On the bright side, Dr. Martha Clokie, who is a microbiologist at the University of Leicester, is optimistic about the development of a virus alternative to antibiotics to help fight common bacterial infections such as gonorrhea and e.coli.

What does this all mean for you? Well, only take antibiotics when they are specifically prescribed for your condition. You can also refuse to take antibiotics for a cold or flu, as they are actually ineffective against viral infections and only promote antibiotic resistance.

Researchers will attempt to develop a new form of antibiotics to help overcome this epidemic of antibiotic resistance. Of course, with a new form of antibiotics introduced to the public, can also mean a new form of costly medication.

To ensure that you protect yourself and your loved ones from the rising cost of prescriptions, such as new forms of antibiotics in the future, make sure that you protect you and your loved ones from the rising costs of prescription medications. We commonly see websites ending with the domains .com, .org, or even , .net, but by the end of this year there will be new domains introduced, including .pharmacy.

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is bidding to control the .pharmacy domain.  This could have a significant impact on US citizens who purchase online prescriptions from online Canadian pharmacies. The bottom line is that if NABP’s bid is successful, you will be banned from purchasing the prescriptions that you need from online Canadian pharmacies, and will be forced to pay double or even triple the  amount for prescription drugs.

Sign the RxRights’ petition to stop the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) bid to control the .pharmacy domain at the following link: http://cqrcengage.com/rxrights/. Share the link with your family and friends to get them to sign the petition too.

Recent Study Shows Link Between Two Types of Antibiotic and Birth Defects


For many women, having children is the most important thing they will ever do. We are programmed genetically to reproduce in order to allow our species to survive. We are animals, and like many animals, we protect our young. This need to protect our children is also why it is scary that two common antibiotics have recently been linked to causing birth defects.

A recent study showed that two common antibiotics may cause birth defects. The two drugs in the study were nitrofurantoins (sold under the brand names Macrobid and Furadantin) and sulfa drugs (sold under the names Bactrim and Thiosulfil Forte). However, this was only the first study to show these results and further testing will be needed in order to confirm any real findings.

This does not mean that ALL antibiotics will cause birth defects. The only thing these findings mean is that you have to talk with your doctor about taking certain medications. You need to understand what some of these different medicines do. You must weigh the potential risks of the drug against the benefits. Take some time to really find out all the courses of action.
