Abstract

The main objective of this research was to investigate and evaluate the behavior of students and future professionals in the health area regarding self-medication and the indiscriminate use of antibiotics. The present study was carried out at Universidade Regional do Cariri-URCA, Pimenta Campus, in the city of Crato-CE. The data were obtained from October to December 2022, through the conduction of an interview prepared in a digital format, through Google Forms. According to the data tabulation, the different answers were analyzed by two students of both sexes, from rural and urban areas, where a total of 72.7% was obtained for those from rural areas and 27.3% from urban areas, with an average age between 19 and 28 years old. Regarding the type of medication most known to the interviewees, analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics were the most frequent. It is concluded that the indiscriminate use of antibiotics is a topic of great relevance, mainly targeting the concerns assessed from their exacerbated use.
