Sir,

We read the paper published by Sanjeev V Thomas in the last issue of Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology. [1] There are various patterns of antibiotic usage in different countries, or even different areas of a country. [2] But, it seems that neurologists are not responsible for this problem in the field of neurology.

Antibiotic misprescription caused by other specialists or general physicians increases antibiotic resistance, which can affect the treatment of infectious diseases in the field of neurology. Thus, in our view, appropriate antibiotic prescription cannot solve the problem, and it is necessary to prevent antibiotic misprescription in all fields of medicine. National health policies and insurance policies for antibiotic prescription play an important role in solving this problem.
