Antibiotics won’t work in the case of cold or flu. Remember: Take antibiotics responsibly #EAAD

Remember: Keeping antibiotics effective is everybody’s everyone’s responsibility #EAAD

Taking #antibiotics improperly contributes to antibiotic resistance – do not self-medicate with antibiotics #EAAD 

Self-medication is taking #antibiotics without consulting doctor - using left-over #antibiotics or buying without prescription #EAAD

Never save #antibiotics for later use, take leftover antibiotics or share leftover antibiotics w/ others #EAAD

#Antibiotics are not painkillers and cannot cure every illness #EAAD

Taking antibiotics for wrong reasons - colds/flu, won't help you feel better faster, and it may cause side-effects #EAAD 

Symptoms of colds and flu can be relieved w/ over-the-counter medicines. #Antibiotics do not work against viral infections #EAAD

Keeping #antibiotics effective is everyone’s responsibility. Join 24-hour global conversation, use #AntibioticResistance to ask experts #EAAD
