CDC finds inappropriate prescribing of antivirals, antibiotics

AANP SmartBrief | Jul 21, 2014

Among patients at high risk for flu complications, only 19% were prescribed antiviral medications, while 30% were given antibiotics, which are ineffective against flu, according to a CDC report published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. The findings suggest that "antiviral medications were underprescribed and antibiotics may have been inappropriately prescribed to a large proportion of outpatients with influenza," researchers said.
