Scientists from Denmark found that the use of antibiotics can provoke mental illness, writes The specialists studied the health of 1 098 930 people who were born from 1995 to 2012 a year, and concluded that serious infections increase the risk of mental disorder 1,84 times. Taking antibiotics increases this chance even 1,4 times.

“If antibacterial drugs are used during pregnancy for up to 16 weeks, when organs and systems are laid, antibiotics are likely to have a negative effect on the developing fetus,” says gynecologist David Sepiashvili.

There are two important aspects to the use of antibiotics: prescription and dosage. Self-treatment in the case of antibacterial drugs is more likely to harm than to relieve ailment, says Professor Yuri Serebryansky. An overdose can lead to poisoning.

What can lead antibiotics?

Eating disorder

Antibiotics kill intestinal microflora, which can cause diarrhea and vomiting, which lead to dehydration and death.


Genital microflora also suffers from antibacterial agents. Launched thrush can cause infertility.


There may be allergic reactions to the drug, the symptoms of which are fever, skin rashes, swollen lymph nodes.

Weakening of immunity

Antibiotics kill not only harmful bacteria, but also useful ones, so the immunity is weakened and the infection can be picked up again.

Gastrointestinal Inflammation

Violations of the microflora contribute to the development of inflammation of the biliary tract, pancreas and lungs.


Inflammations caused by improper use of antibiotics may, over time, develop into a malignant tumor.
