Antiobiotics Resistance

Hwaaaaaa, well, TDM make me dizzy. So dizzy. Whereas, it's just in second page. How can I finish learn it until eighteenth pages? Masya Allah. . . The problems set in that book is also diffucult to learn by my self. Well, I just read and learn "Principle of Clinical Pharmacology" book, that written by Atkinson and the second book but primary book is "Apllied Clinical Pharmacokinetics" by Larry A Bauer. Both of them make me so dizzy, so I move to anothers book which titled "All About Antibiotics". So, Sharing about Antibiotics is more interest than learn about "TDM=therapeutic drug monitoring".

Okeehh, let's we talk about ANTIBIOTICS RESISTANCE...
Antibiotics are drug used for treating infection caused by bacteria. Should to Remember, ANTIBIOTICS are used ONLY for BACTERIA INFECTION. Do not used it for VIRAL Infections! Most of these case are used antibiotics for treating viruses infection such as cough, influenza fever, strep throat, colds. Hemm... it's a misuse of antibiotics. Ehh, no, it's not! It's the overuse of antibiotics. Misuse of these drugs such as stop the treatment when patients feel better. Using antibiotics against viral infections will not cure the infection, will not keep other individuals from catching the virus, will not help a person feel better, may cause unnecessary harmful side effects and may contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Misuse and overuse of these drugs, however, have contributed to a phenomenon known as antibiotic resistance. This resistance develops when potentially harmful bacteria change in a way that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of antibiotics.


Antibiotic resistance is a growing public health concern worldwide. When a person is infected with an antibiotic resistant bacterium, not only is treatment of that patient more difficult, but the antibiotic-resistant bacterium may spread to other people. When antibiotics don’t work, the result can be longer illnesses, more complicated illnesses, more doctor visits, the use of stronger and more expensive drugs and more deaths caused by bacterial infections. How Dangerous it is!

When we are prescribed an antibiotic to treat a bacterial infection, it’s important to take the medication exactly as directed. So, what sould we do?????
Hemm,,, based on FDA information, I will share what should we do to perevent dan combate the ANTIBIOTICS RESISTANCE. . .
Please, follow this direction, Siiipppp??!


  • Complete the full course of the drug. It’s important to take all of the medication, even if we are feeling better. If treatment stops too soon, the drug may not kill all the bacteria. We may become sick again, and the remaining bacteria may become resistant to the antibiotic that we’ve taken.
  • Do not skip doses. Antibiotics are most effective when they are taken regularly.
  • Do not save antibiotics. We might think that we can save an antibiotic for the next time we get sick, but an antibiotic is meant for our particular infection at the time. Never take leftover medicine. Taking the wrong medicine can delay getting the appropriate treatment and may allow our condition to worsen.
  • Do not take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. These may not be appropriate for our illness, may delay correct treatment, and may allow our condition to worsen.
  • Talk with our health care professional. Ask questions, especially if we are uncertain about when an antibiotic is appropriate or how to take it. Hemm, for these case, we can ask the PHARMACIST about direction of using antibiotics. Hemm, I provide this service expecially for you. (yeaaah, for you whom still read this blog. How lucky you're for finding this blog #haha,just kidding! ). You can fill the field on "INFORMASI OBAT/DRUG INFORMATION" in this blog or send me SMS on +628566756732 at 08.00-10.00 pm every night. (haha, free promotion! But, this service is also FREE except your pulsa for send me SMS. ahaha... :D).


Okeeeh?? Siiippp... Let's Cambate and Prevent ANTIBIOTICS RESISTANCE. Not only for doctor and pharmacits, but it's our responsibility. For everyone, not only medical people.

Ohhhh my God! Masya Allah, I almost forget about my TDM. And tomorrow (insya Allah) I will get examination about that. I never study about TDM completely. Soooo, I must fight this night! Please pray for me. Please..pleaseeee.... Hihihi....

Okeeehhh, LONG LIFE EDUCATION... ^__^
