ABSTRACT

In the Philippines, amoxicillin is one of the most commonly bought and widely available antibiotics to the public. With its broad therapeutic use and significance as one of the most commonly accessible drugs to the public, this research then seeks to assess the extent of knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) on the use of amoxicillin among selected Filipino adults. A descriptive correlational method was utilized in this study, wherein a total of 334 respondents participated through non-probability convenience sampling. Data were collected through Google forms, which used descriptive statistics, multivariate linear regression, Pearson's correlation coefficient, t-test, and one-way ANOVA to determine the extent of the selected respondents' KAP. The majority of the respondents consist of the group of young adults (86.53%), females (74.85%), 71.86% are college graduates, and 63.17% came from urban communities. The findings of the study showed that the respondents were considered to have a great extent of knowledge (X̅: 3.30) and attitudes (X̅: 3.26). However, they only show a moderate extent in the practice of amoxicillin use (X̅: 3.16). As a result, this study provides evidence that knowledge impacts attitudes and practice and eventually, contributes to the advancement of intervention techniques to encourage and sustain optimal amoxicillin consumption in the general population.

Keywords: amoxicillin, knowledge, attitudes, practices, antimicrobial resistance, Filipino.
