Antibiotic Medication Orlando FL

Prescription antibiotics are widely used to treat bacterial infections. These powerful medications work by either destroying the infection-causing bacteria or preventing the bacteria from reproducing and thriving. When used properly, antibiotics can help your body’s immune system effectively fight off certain infections.

When Are Antibiotic Prescriptions Appropriate?

Some common illnesses that can be treated with antibiotic prescriptions include:

  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Bacterial vaginosis (a common vaginal infection)
  • Strep throat
  • Most ear infections
  • Some types of pneumonia
  • Some skin infections, such as dermatitis and impetigo
  • Certain sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis

On the other hand, it is important to understand that antibiotics are wholly ineffective against viral infections, such as the common cold, flu, and bronchitis, as well as most coughs and sore throats. What’s more, taking an antibiotic unnecessarily can do more harm than good. For example, excessive antibiotic use can increase your risk of C. diff, a severe infection that can lead to life-threatening diarrhea. Additionally, preserving the effectiveness of antibiotics is in everyone’s best interest; when overused, antibiotic prescriptions can promote the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Antibiotic Stewardship Improves Patient Care

At Optimum Direct Care, we prescribe antibiotics only when necessary and educate our patients to help ensure that those medications are used appropriately. For each patient, we specifically design an appropriate treatment regimen and fully explain our rationale. We find that our patients appreciate this information; after all, what they’re seeking is an effective treatment for their symptoms, which may or may not be an antibiotic.

As a pharmaceutical dispensary, Optimum Direct Care is able to offer our members free prescription medications such as generic antibiotics from a limited inventory at our office in Orlando, Florida. To learn more or inquire about membership, contact us today.

“When I left my corporate job to start my own business, one of many new challenges was finding quality health care. When I was starting to look for a new Primary Care Doctor, a peer recommended Direct Primary Care. I did some research and found Dr. Muzzi. In the years leading up to finding Dr. Muzzi, the way I think about my health evolved to fit a more modern view of health and science with a focus on overall wellness and preventative medicine. I was surprised and delighted on my first visit to find Dr. Muzzi not only shared this view, but was practicing medicine in this way. Focusing on my overall wellness rather than treating symptoms has improved my quality of life and undoubtedly add quality years to my life. Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. I never imagined Dr. Muzzi existed before I found her. Now, I can’t picture a future of my healthcare without her. If the traditional Doctor / Patient relationship makes you feel like you’re stuck in I4 traffic (frustrated & certain no one will ever fix it) and you want to change that, you’re in the right place.”
