What happens if you do not complete your course of antibiotics?

For you personally, if you don't finish the course of antibiotics, the infection may appear to have cleared but in fact may still remain and come back stronger and worse. Depending on the infection, that could mean another course of antibiotics is needed or more drastic treatment. Of course, you may just be lucky and the infection has already been cleared but it will do you no harm to finish the course and it is more likely that you won't have cleared it up. Some infections even take more than one course of antibiotics.

Antibiotics are completely safe to use. The only time when it would be bad is if you take them for no reason, and a "superbug" that is immune to antibiotics forms. And, of course, if you are allergic.

Is that just a myth that one should complete the course of antibiotics?

No. Obviously not. If a patient does not complete a course of antibiotics, they run the risk of selecting for antibiotic resistant bacteria in their body. If these bacteria become infectious, stronger (more expensive) antibiotics will be required to treat the secondary infection.

Why is it important to complete a course of antibiotics?

It is important to complete a course of antibiotics because even if you start to feel better, the infection may not have been killed, enabling it to either: 1. Build a defence against the prescribed antibiotic and come back stronger, meaning that you will then need to be prescribed a stronger course of antibiotics to fight the infection. Or 2. Remain dormant in your body with a new resilience against antibiotics. This increases the risk of you contracting MRSA, if you are hospitalised or come in to contact with the MRSA bug later in life, and with the resilience to antibiotics it will not be easily treated. Neither of the above are certain to happen if you do not complete a course of antibiotics, but both have a significantly high risk.
