Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: For how long do I need to take this injection?

A: You are supposed to complete the prescribed dosage duration by your physician. If you have skipped the dose or do not complete the course it may cause resistance and decrease the effectiveness of immediate treatment.

Q: What do you mean by inappropriate use of antibiotics?

A: Inappropriate use of antibiotics constitutes taking antibiotics when not needed, for wrong diseases, taking inappropriate dosage and not completing the course of antibiotic treatment as prescribed by the doctor.

Q: What is antibiotic resistance?

A: Antibiotic resistance is a natural process. It occurs when an antibiotic fails to efficiently control the growth or kill a bacteria causing infection. A bacteria resistant to antibiotics continues to multiply in the presence of antibiotics, which would generally kill them. As resistance develops, these antibiotic medicines become gradually less effective – and eventually, they lose their effectiveness entirely. Antibiotic resistance is a consequence of the excessive and inappropriate use of antibiotics and misuse even when not required.
