Do I need to finish an antibiotic prescription?


If you receive a prescription for an antibiotic it is important that you finish the entire course of pills even if you begin to feel better. If you stop taking antibiotics before the course is through, the infection may still be present. You then run the risk of developing another infection. This second infection is usually harder to treat and may have developed some resistance to the antibiotic.
