Antibiotic Prescriptions Dispensed On Site in Orlando, FL

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.

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
