Most antibiotics are found to have deleterious long-term results, creating antibiotic-resistant organisms, making us unable to benefit from antibiotics in serious infections. Does anyone know whether this has weakening effects over time, or interferes with the body's ability to fight infections?

I've just started on rifaxamin with positive results but am concerned about reports from others that the symptoms return and the course of medication has to be repeated. I've believed for so long that antibiotics do as much harm as good, and should be used minimally.
