Basic recommendations on the use of antibiotics
Antibiotics are intended for the treatment of infections caused by bacteria. They have no effect against virus-induced infections.
Sometimes an infection caused by bacteria does not respond to antibiotic treatment. One of the most common reasons for this is that the bacteria causing the infection are resistant to the antibiotic used for the treatment. This means that regardless of the antibiotic they survive and even reproduce.
Bacteria can become antibiotic resistant for many reasons. Careful use of antibiotics can help reduce the chance of bacteria becoming resistant to them.
When your doctor prescribes you a course of antibiotic treatment, it is intended for the treatment of your current illness only. Take note of the following recommendations and this will help prevent the emergence of resistant bacteria that can stop the antibiotic.
1. It is very important that you take the right dose of antibiotic at the right time and number of days. Read the package leaflet and contact your doctor or pharmacist if you need advice.
2. Do not take an antibiotic unless it is prescribed for you personally. Use it only to treat the infection you have been prescribed.
3. Do not take an antibiotic prescribed to another person, even if he or she has an infection similar to yours.
4. Do not give the antibiotic prescribed to you to other people.
5. If, after completing the course of treatment as prescribed by your doctor, you are left with an unused antibiotic, return it to the pharmacy for proper disposal.
