Five Star Urgent Care Explains Appropriate Use of Antibiotics

Combating Cold and Flu Season

Cold and flu season is here and antibiotics may seem like an easy answer to help you heal. But at what point should you begin to take antibiotics? Doctor Louanne Giangreco of Five Star Urgent Care shares how to use antibiotics safely.

Antibiotics are not always beneficial to cold and/ or flu symptoms. Over two million antibiotic resistant illnesses occur each year, contributing to 23,000 deaths. Even if used appropriately antibiotics can still leave you susceptible to infections.

Five Star Urgent Care has five locations in Central New York including Route 11 in Cicero, West Genesee Street in Fairmount, Oswego Road in Liverpool, East Genesee Street in Fayetteville and South Meadow Street in Ithaca.
