In brief: Not advisable

One shouldn't take antibiotics without first seeing their physician and getting his/her approval and prescription.
Many infections are viral and not treatable with antibiotics; and even if it is bacterial and treatable, they always require a medical evaluation because certain bacterial infections are treated with certain antibiotics. Taking inappropriate antibiotics is unhealthy and harmful.
