Error code 400 | Backend error. 400 Bad Request

I am using the Eikon python API and receive "Error code 400 | Backend error. 400 Bad Request" very frequently and I have to rerun the query to make it work. I am using version 1.0.1 of Eikon. Is there a solution to this problem?

When a request fails because the platform is overwhelmed, an HTTP response with status code 400 and the message "Backend error. 400 Bad Request" is returned. What can be done when a limit is reached?
-Do not silently discard Eikon Exceptions
-Tell your user a limit has been reached
-Consider leveraging the information sent along with the exception
-Try to detect and address datapoint limits
