Antibiotics, Anti-bacterial agents.


Antibiotic resistance is a widespread problem nowadays, and the majority of cases are caused by people who do not take their antibiotics as advised by their doctors. The goal of this study is to see the correlation of age and factors that results to the non-adherence of prescribed antibiotics. The researchers carried out a descriptive quantitative study, which is a method of collecting measurable data for statistical analysis of a population sample. It is a frequently used market research tool that allows researchers to collect and describe demographic category information. The purpose of this research method is to figure out how these two or more variables are related. The study took place in the province of Cavite for two weeks (March to April 2021). With a minimum of 135 participants, the survey was conducted using the Google Forms platform. The participants are divided into five groups based on their age: 18-22, 23-27, 28-32, 33-37, and 38-42. The most experienced factor, with the greatest degree of agreement among the respondents, is the economic element, followed by the mental and social factors. The social factor comes in third, followed by the financial aspect, which received only a neutral response from respondents, and the physical factor. Because the data demonstrates that the majority of respondents are not adherent, regardless of their age, age is cannot be considered as a factor that results to the non-adherence of prescribed antibiotics.
