Increasing drug use. Conceptual image of pills in test tubes, representing an increase in the amount of drugs being prescribed. Excessive reliance on drugs, instead of a healthy immune system, is not considered to be best medical practice. Bacteria can also develop resistance to antibiotics when such drugs are excessively used. The pills at far left contain the drug in a solid binding material. The other drugs are enclosed in gelatin cases. The red pills at centre left contain a liquid for fast release, while the ones to the right contain small balls of the drugs for a slow release into the body. The test tubes represent drug research.
