CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some information about keeping antibiotics working with some helpful tips.

  • Using antibiotics often and misusing them (not finishing all of a prescription) leads to antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  • Bacteria that develop ways to survive against antibiotics are called antibiotic-resistant bacteria; routine antibiotics will not kill them.
  • Misusing antibiotics helps create antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  • Resistant bacteria are sometimes called “super bugs.”
  • Infections caused by “super bugs” can be more severe and harder to treat.
  • “Super bugs” can be dangerous to your family and to your community because they can be passed from person-to-person the same way that other bacteria are spread.
  • Using antibiotics wisely is the best way to control resistance.
