Expect to See More Amoxicillin Rxs for Community-Acquired Pneumonia
You'll see shifts in the outpatient treatment of community-acquired pneumonia...based on new guidelines.
Discourage using azithromycin for generally healthy adults...since S. pneumoniae resistance is typically 25% or higher across the U.S.
Instead, recommend amoxicillin 1 g TID. This is a big change.
