Oral Antibiotics

Tablets, capsules, syrup, or liquid that are taken orally to prevent or treat various infections caused by bacteria are called oral antibiotics. Penicillins, Cephalosporins, Tetracyclines, Quinolones, and Sulfonamides are the most commonly used oral antibiotics classes. The indiscriminate use of oral antibiotics makes bacteria resistant, so avoid self-medication.
