Unless you see a doctor, the problem with taking too much antibiotics is your body will build an immunity to them, and not work when you need them. Consult your doctor. Hope you feel better.

If the cold is viral, antibiotics won't help. It is not good to take them when the sickness isn't bacterial because your body will build an immunity to the medicine and then it won't work when you really need it.

you could end up with the super bug MRSA

as soon as you are feeling better throw away your germy toothbrush

If you take too many of them in your life, your body will eventually reject them. A good way to help prevent speading colds is to wash your hands as much as often.

Taking too many antibiotics decreases your resistance level to many diseases. Not to mention you can end up with a nasty yeast infection or diarrhea.

Colds are caused by viruses. Antibiotics only work against bacterial infections e.g. if you have strep throat.

You actually can't catch the same cold again, you can only catch a new cold virus that your immune system has not been exposed to.

I say start cleaning your living space, wash your hands, and don't share food. Lots of chicken soup and rest is the best remedy.

Taking "too many antibiotics" as you say presents the risk of becoming immune to their effects. Taking antibiotics as little as possible and only when most needed in case of severe infections is more beneficial.
Taking antibiotics every time you sneeze is a waste. Rather, try to educate yourself with natural herbal remedies and vitamins intakes, like vitamin C.

A cold is a virus and antibiotics will not help. Overuse of antibiotics has caused bacteria to mutate into "superbugs" or bacteria that is antibiotic resistant.
MRSA is just one example.

You foolish people. colds are due to a virus & no antibiotic available will affect this virus. Take megadoses of vitamin C ASAP, daily &^ throw out those antibiotics. You are playhingwith fire. You are wrecking your bodies' immune system with them & creating stronger bacteria for everyone. else to suffer from.

I am sure it could be
you should not share anti-biotics with anyone!
sometimes if you are sick alot and often, and you take anti-biotics, your body actually becomes immune to them
talk to your doc //you may need different or a higher dose of the medications

You can get clostridium difficile toxin, also known as: C. difficile, it's caused by taking too much antibotics that can kill off your good bacteria in your system "normal Flora", this can disrupt the balance of bacteria in the colon causing diarrhea. You can do a search online for more info.
