Swedes Popping Fewer Pills

Published tisdag 19 januari 2010 kl 10.35

Swedes are getting fewer antibiotics from their doctors. Prescriptions were down over 7% in 2009, compared with the year before according to news agency TT.

The biggest reduction can be found in prescriptions for children under four, with many bronchial infections being allowed to heal without using medicines.

Christer Norman from the Strama organisation formed to fight resistance to antibiotics, tells TT he is encouraged by the latest figures, but says Swedish doctors are still prescribing more antibiotics than necessary.
