GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF ALL ANTIBIOTICS


     GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF ALL ANTIBIOTICS:
1. If you do not know exactly how to use the antibiotic and what infections it can be used for, do not use it.
2. Use only an antibiotic that is recommended for the infection you wish to treat.
3 . Know the risks in using the antibiotic and take all the recommended precautions.
4. Use the antibiotic only in the,recommended dose-no more, no less. The dose depends on the illness and the age or weight of the sick person.
5. Never use injections of antibiotics if taking them by mouth is likely to work as well. Inject only when absolutely necessary.
6. Keep using the antibiotics until the illness is completely cured, or for at least 2 days after the fever and other signs of infection have gone.
7. If the antibiotic causes a skin rash, itching, difficult breathing, or any serious reactions, the person must stop using it and never use it again.
8. Only use antibiotics when the need is great. When antibiotics are used too much they begin not to work as well.
