The statement by the head of the Department of General and Clinical Pharmacology of the RUDN University, Professor Sergei Zyryanov, in which he warned Russian citizens against purchasing antibiotics during the coronavirus pandemic, explaining that the use of such medicines requires the appointment of doctors, caused a heated discussion on the network. Citizens expressed their point of view on December 8 in the Yandex.News service.
"The unusual twofold growth only suggests that people abandoned to the mercy of self-medication bought what doctors prescribed for them from" some virus in the nasopharynx "and what they heard from someone. with prescriptions as expected. Growth would be even greater if drugs were available,”writes Ser M.
Many commentators have expressed their doubts about this doctor's recommendation. People do not know what to take in case of probable coronavirus disease.
“Hmm. Stock up on nasal drops and antipyretic drugs. This is despite the fact that nose drops do not help in any way with ARVI with cough, and antipyretic should be taken only as a last resort, since the body raises the temperature in order to kill the infection. If you lower the temperature at 37 or 38, then you can simply stretch and complicate the course of the disease,”writes user Leon.
Some suggested a different way out of this situation. People believe that healthy immunity is the best remedy to fight the coronavirus, not drugs.
“Why can't it be easier? Vitamins with minerals, probiotics and prebiotics. Sleep for 8 hours in the dark and a long walk in the air. + Reduce the intake of high-fat, high-calorie foods, and the hardest part is to remove stress. Immunity is ready in a couple of weeks,”advises user zzzz.
There were also those who indicated to the doctor that the population was experiencing problems in order to make an appointment with the doctor. People note that the health care system is not doing its job and they have to take responsibility for their own health.
“Apparently the professor is not aware that the main problem is to get to the doctor and then find these antibiotics in the pharmacy. It has been impossible to buy ceftriaxone in the Samara region for more than a month now,”shared Vlad Sh.
