Bad Antibiotic Information on Twitter

Have you ever had a question about symptoms or medications? Do you go to the internet to find answers? 

Researchers from Columbia University analyzed more than 1000 tweets on Twitter in an effort to see what kind of information was being shared about antibiotics. Not surprisingly, some tweets offered to share medications with friends, asked what to do with leftover pills, and inquired how to stretch their antibiotics as long as possible!

PositiveTip: Carelessness with antibiotics can be serious. Confirm all medical information from social media with your healthcare provider.
