Antibiotics are medicaments which prevent the development of pathogenic bacteria or other micro-organisms in the human’s organism, without damaging the organism itself. Introducing of the antibiotics into the medical practice is the most important achievement of the pharmacotherapy in the 20th century. This is the only group of medicaments whose usage extends the life of the people and provides treatment of some of the fatal diseases. Until today there are hundreds of newly discovered antimicrobial agents in the market. Most of the antibiotics are proscribed to ambulatory treated patients. Despite the huge importance of antimicrobial medicaments to all areas of medicine, it is undeniable that they are used much more frequently than is justified. All these medicaments show adverse reactions that may expose patients to unnecessary risk. Unjustifiable use of drugs has a significant negative economic impact on the community as well. The selection of actual antibiotic in the dental medicine is discussed in terms of the recommendations of Evidencebased Medicine, BNF 60, WHO Model Formulary, Martindale, Pharmacotherapeutic manuals and the list of drugs covered by the Health Insurance Fund, with a review of drugs registered in the Republic of Macedonia and their reference and sales prices. Rational approach to the use of antimicrobial therapy is extremely important, and therefore the prescription of such medicaments requires a good knowledge of their pharmacological, toxicological and other features, as well as the price, which all together can contribute to the advancement of the pharmacotherapy.
