Last quote by Peter Openshaw

I have always thought it to be illogical to say that stopping antibiotic treatment early promotes the emergence of drug-resistant organisms. This brief but authoritative review supports the idea that antibiotics may be used more sparingly, pointing out that the evidence for a long duration of therapy is, at best, tenuous. Far from being irresponsible, shortening the duration of a course of antibiotics might make antibiotic resistance less likely.feedback
