- The current practice of the medicaments administration in the ambulant treatment for the acute tonsillitis in 300 patients was retrospectively evaluated. It was determined that the etiotropic therapy with the antibiotics application took place in 100% of cases and was administered empirically without previous bacteriological examination. Among the antibiotics which were used for the acute tonsillitis treatment penicillin took the leading position. Macrolides were administered more rarely (in aggravating allergic medical history). The reliable differences in the application of the original medicaments and generics were not revealed. The main defects of the current tactics of antibiotics therapy for the acute tonsillitis in ambulant practice were the shortening of the duration of the course of treatment by the medicaments of penicillin line and the evaluation of the therapy effi cacy only with due regard for the positive dynamics of the disease clinical symptoms.
