Dear of prescription given are for conditions

Dear
representative or administrator of the Food and Drug Administration,
I
am college student pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and I am
concerned about the over excessive use of antibiotics. The over
excessive use of antibiotics may cause many bacteria to become
resistant at a faster rate than ever before. I hope that the use of
antibiotics can properly be monitored with the goal of preventing
many diseases that can affect us if the bacteria become resistant to
them. Since my goal is to become a Nurse I am concerned if patients
are over abusing the use of antibiotics or if the healthcare
providers are giving them out without realizing the affects it can
have in the near future.

When
looking at the Ted talk, “What
do we do when antibiotics don’t work anymore?” by Maryn McKenna
it really surprised me how fast bacteria can develop resistances to
antibiotics. McKenna said penicillin was discovered in 1943 and
bacteria was resistant two years later. In 2003 daptomycin was
created and bacteria gained resistant a year later in 2004. If
bacteria win the battle against antibiotic the death toll worldwide
can continue to rise each year. A simple cold can kill us because
antibiotics will no longer work against the pathogens that are
invading our body. Mary McKenna said that about 50% of antibiotics
given in hospitals are for unnecessary reasons. As well as 45% of
prescription given are for conditions that antibiotics can’t help.

Surgeries will no longer be possible because antibiotics will no
longer be able to protect patients.

As
Alexander Fleming once said, “The thoughtless person playing
with penicillin treatment is morally responsible for the death of the
man who succumbs to infection with the penicillin resistant organism”
but he had hope we can slow down the process of antibiotic
resistances. The Food and Drug Administration can help doctors to
give the right prescription for the illness that the patient has. As
Maryn McKenna said, a system should be built to help tell us how
antibiotics are being used. Prescriptions should be reevaluated to so
that excessive use of antibiotics can be controlled. We can finically
support companies to help build new antibiotics. Together we can all
help fight the battle against bacteria. Thank for taking time off
your busy schedule to read my letter.
