ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Members of the European parliament proposed that the classification of antibiotics be changed to prescription-only drug to stop the rising levels of antibiotic resistance. In a report, "Together for health: a strategic approach for the EU 2008-13," they said that differing attitudes to antibiotics in the European Union (EU) have led to variations in resistance and frequent movement is worsening the problem. They recommend monitoring of inappropriate use by giving out guidelines to ensure they are prescribed only when needed.
