Return To Antibiotics After Stopping One Year In Children?
Good night … My child aged 15 months has typhus … Has been given antibiotics from the hospital … Just drink it 2 times because my child does not want to eat there once so I do not dare to give medicine … Should be today control because the antibiotics have not been finished so I’m not in control … My question … Can antibiotics be taken back ?? After a few days do not drink? Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
How many times has the antibiotic dose been missed? If the new dose is consumed twice and the missed dose is still less than 1 week, generally the administration of antibiotics can be continued according to the recommended dosage from the doctor. Antibiotics should be given until the recommended dosage is complete, not stopped alone so as not to cause immunity (resistance) to bacteria.
In order to be able to evaluate the development of your child's condition, it is recommended to keep bringing your child control to the doctor or pediatrician who handles it according to the planned control schedule. If it is deemed necessary, the doctor may make adjustments to the type / dose of the drug given.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
