Can you use fish medicines to treat humans?

I came across something worrisome on the net (yeah, that’s not unthinkable). Anyway, in the current climate of a one-health system in the battle against antibiotics resistance and overuse of antibiotics, we’d need to tighten up the availability of such medicines, otherwise they may no longer be prescribed by veterinarians, and worse, they may no longer be effective for when WE want to use it ourselves. It is predicted that there could be a significant rise in fatalities associated with bacterial and viral infections if this occurs.

Let us practice good judgement prior to reaching for the antibiotics, whether it be for fish, your other pets or for yourselves.
