I read an article about how prophylactic antibiotics work for patients with recurrent UTI.
The answer was that prophylactic antibiotics could reduce the number of recurrent UTIs in no pregnant women while they are on the medication. They are the followings:fluoroquinolones, first-generation cephalosporins, trimethoprim, sulfamethoxazole, and nitrofurantoin
After that, I look for some clinical trials researches artcles on-line and found out that each of them mentioned different prophylactic antibiotics.
My question is:
Is there a list of the most frequently prescribed prophylactic antibiotics versus treatment antibiotics? Could you address me to the resource or provide with the list?
In other words…how to distinguish prophylactic antibiotics and regular ones
? Thank you in advance
