The Procedure For Consumption Of Antibiotic Drugs?
Night docDok my child was 3hrs in Bapil fever aged 3 years … then I went to the general practitioner given a colfin syrup u0026amp; Novachlor 3 × 1/2 measuring spoon .. what I asked yesterday was that I asked the doctor about Novachlor Antibiotics … well, should it be finished but the doctor said not to spend at least 3hrs, recommended for the antibiotic … as short as I know, it’s not abtibiotic, it must be finished. ?Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Novachlor is an antibiotic that contains Chloramphenicol. This antibiotic is actually only indicated to be given in conditions of severe infections such as meningitis, typhoid, rickettsia, and is not indicated to be given in mild bacterial infections that can be treated with other antibiotics. This is because chloramphenicol has quite a lot of side effects and some of them are potentially dangerous.
We certainly do not know clearly the indications of giving Chloramphenicol to your child because they do not conduct direct examinations on children. However, the standard antibiotic administration is not based on antibiotics depleted or not depleted, but rather based on how many days antibiotics should be given according to indications of the disease. For example there are antibiotics that must be given for 7 days, 10 days, 14 days, until some are given 6 months or more. The doctor will generally prescribe an appropriate amount of antibiotics (for example 10 tablets for antibiotics that must be taken 2 times a day for 5 days) so it is often said that antibiotics must be consumed. This does not apply to syrup antibiotics for children who may still be left after the treatment period is over (so it does not need to be spent).
If you have doubts about the treatment given by the doctor who examined your child, you should take your child to another doctor or to the pediatrician to ask for a second opinion.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
