  1. To prevent antibiotic resistance:

    Discard any leftover medication once the prescribed course of treatment is completed. Do not ask for antibiotics when your doctor thinks you do not need them. Remember antibiotics have side effects. Prevent infections by practising good hand hygiene and getting the recommended vaccine.
