Can using too many antibiotics damage your organs?

    According to, anti-biotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse has caused problems. “Their frequent use, often for conditions or infections that aren’t caused by bacteria, has given rise to bacteria that are resistant to many commonly used antibiotics. Superbugs emerge when an antibiotic fails to kill all of the bacteria it targets, and the surviving bacteria become resistant to that particular drug and frequently other antibiotics as well. Doctors then prescribe a stronger antibiotic, but the bacteria quickly learn to withstand the more potent drug as well, perpetuating a cycle in which increasingly powerful drugs are required to treat infections.”

    Eventually, yes. Using too many antibiotics or using antibiotics excessively can lead to the resistance of antibiotics, therefore, when you really need them to fight life-threatening or seriously dangerous illnesses, they do not work. That, in turn, can lead to serious infection causing significant damage to organs.

    It seems that using an excessive amount of antibiotics does not directly hurt your organs. If you are taking the correct amount at the correct time for the correct reason, then taking numerous antibiotics throughout your lifetime should not be a problem. It is when these directions are not followed that antibiotics can, ironically, begin to hurt our bodies. Bacterias can become resistant to medication very easily, and using antibiotics too often for things they cannot cure can make them ultimately less effective. When the medication is no longer effective, there may not be another option that will work. This greatly increases the risk of further complications, greater health problems and even death.
