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.

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
