Since she arrived in Poland in September, my Turkish roommate has been suffering from terrible rheumatism, colds, and throat and bladder infections.
what condition? If she's had a splenectomy, lifelong antibiotics are appropriate and necessary.

such as? Penicillins are still saving thousands of lives in the UK, why should Poland be any different?

Probably because antibiotics are useless against viruses, and she may have a viral infection.
As a side note: I have an acute allergy to penicillin and suffer with 2 of your room mates problems, so there are ways around it.

Stop the anti biotics
Absolutely DO NOT do this until you find out EXACTLY WHY your friend needs a penicillin - it may be life-saving.
