Embed Drug Resistance / Antibiotic Resistance - Infographic on your site
Drug resistance is a grave medical problem in today’s world. A person is said to be resistant to a drug if he does not respond to it. This problem is often seen with antimicrobial drugs. Antimicrobials especially antibiotics are prescribed indiscriminately. The physician may prescribe the antimicrobial for a particular number of days, but the patient may stop taking the drug as soon as he is better. Antibiotics are often available over – the – counter in the absence of adequate regulations. In such cases, the patient may take a lower dose than necessary. They are also being freely used in poultry and animal husbandry to improve the growth of farm animals and prevent infections. All these conditions predispose organisms to develop resistance to a drug.
