GB2017 Posted November 20, 2017 Share Posted November 20, 2017 I am at a complete loss for how to study antibiotics. I tried to learn what the drugs cover (gram pos/neg, cocci, anaerobes, etc.) but there are too many exceptions to those rules. They don't cover ALL gram pos, or ALL anaerobes, for example. Then I tried to learn what bacteria cause what pathology, and the morphology of the bacteria (trying to apply what I'd learned above). Once again, it really wasn't concrete enough. I tried to learn each individual pathology and what drugs are used for each, but... well, that's just not going to stick! Plus everyone has different opinions/favorite drugs that they use. I would love to be able to just pick a favorite from each category and learn them well, and know exactly what I would use for, say, a sore throat (pre-culture). However, for test-taking purposes, when I have to choose just one "best," that isn't going to work either. Every resource I look at says something different, and then of course my professors have yet another opinion as to what is correct. I'm just getting a little overwhelmed, and am hoping I'm not alone in this! Any advice out there? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
