giving antibiotics have lots of side effects..like diarrhea,low appetite and so on..most importantly could lead to resistence to that particular antibiotic due to inadequate and ramdom use.so one must avoid it generally.the drugs that increase immunity like multivitamins have no side effects unless given for a specific time as overdose of some vitamins can also cause some disease like symptoms.there is nothing to worry much though.have a pleasant day.
