Hi geeta ,ask your doctor about the medicine he/she is prescribing whether it is antibiotic or not ,along with effects/side effects of the same .you can also search the name of medicine with associated details on websites like www. drugs. com and similar ones. Hi annjacquelinesoares, panadol is paracetamol , analgesic and antipyretic .might help in relieving fever and associated headache/throat ache in case of cold /cough.

This is very true... but now-a-days using antibiotics has become very common... in the U. A. E. I have seen practitioners giving sheets of antibiotics for cold and fever... I wanted to ask is panadol a proper medicine for cough and cold?

Mahalaxmi, the thing u mentioned does happen(sadly) and it's got to do both with patients ( who feel disappointed / incompletely examined till a few blood tests /scans /antibiotics are not prescribed ) as well as some doctors who do this for retaining patients. That's why one should have full faith in his /her specialist and discuss pros and cons of any given antibiotic prescribed prior to consuming them.

But these days, doctors themselves are prescribing antibiotics to treat every other illness, that too high doses, even for kids. This they do to retain patients, since the patients get a satisfaction that this doctor effectively treats and the illness is gone. Very few doctors, really gauge the situation well and try not to prescribe antibiotics unless it is very much needed. This is out of my personal experience with at least 7 different doctors and specialists.

Thank you for this useful piece of information Dr. Solanki. This issue is something that need attention urgently. My father has been a medicine wholesaler for years now and has also become a doctor by practicing self medication. We were given antibiotics as children for every little illness, from a simple flu to severe infections. I now know better and make sure my children are not unnecessarily given medications and am also trying to change my fathers habit. Maybe I should make him read this article :)
