Time for turning wheel
The artcle by Rachida el Moussaoui and colleagues prompts every
physician to think"Are we overtreating the mild to moderately severe
community aquired pneumonia?".
while 3-day antibiotic course is not inferior to 7-10 day course, are we
not increasing the emergence of drug resistance to various antibiotics by
prescribing antibiotics for longer periods?.
We all know that there is not enough evidence to support the
recommendation for 7-10 day antibiotic course.This is the high time to
ponder into this issue.
However,we need more evidence to support this recommendation fo 3-day
antibiotic course.This notably reduces the cost and also decreases the
emergence of antibiotic resistance.Time for turning wheel!
