why can't you double up on antibiotics?

Why can't you take a double dose of antibiotics to speed up recovery from illness? How is it that the standard pill size is "perfect" for everybody's body weight? Shouldn't a 200lb man be taking more medication than a 100lb woman?

Inquiring minds want to know.

because you'll run out faster and that's bad

if you don't take enough to fend off the infection you could end up with supargerms resistant to the medication

yeah but if 1 pill wipes them out, wouldn't 2 pills wipe them out faster?

the doctor will prescribe more if you are bigger but antibiotics arnt quite the same as other drugs

edit: doubleing the dose wont do shit spet for kill more freindly bactirium.

edit2: when you take antibiotics for a period the infection is mostly killed in the first few days. continuation of the drug prevents any resistant stains from populating by alowing your body to concetrate on the left over ones by keeping the non resitant strains away.

Because the bacteria they target become more resistant. The more we use antibiotics, the less effective they become.

I'm pretty sure your body will only absorb so much at any given time which is why the treatment is extended rather than taking 18 pills at once.

That's not the way it works. The kinetics of drugs in your body don't equate to a x2 dose = x2 better type of system.

Some antibiotics work by reaching a certain concentration to kill bugs, and others work by a certain exposure time to kill them. I'd go into it more, but most of you are retarded. Suffice to say, follow your doctor's/pharmacist's instructions and quit whining like a little bitch. You'll get better in due time. All you'd accomplish by taking twice the dose is increasing your chance of bad side effects and possibly fucking up killing the bacteria.

I'm pretty sure if the doctors could sell you double the prescription meds they would, they need a new Porsche from big pharma
