NASHVILLE – Antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed drugs used in human medicine, and chances are you and your family members have taken them multiple times. These vital drugs help fight life-threatening bacterial diseases and are generally safe when appropriately prescribed. But overuse and misuse of antibiotics can reduce their benefit and contribute to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria, which kill thousands of Americans every year. The Tennessee Department of Health encourages Tennesseans to learn about proper prescribing and use of these medications.
