Abstract

With the development of infectious diseases, the use of antibiotics is increasing. Amoxicillin is a penicillin class of antibiotics that are widely used today. Compliance with amoxicillin can reduce the risk of microbial resistance. Two fundamental factors that determine patient compliance in antibiotic therapy are the patient’s knowledge and attitude towards the antibiotic. In this study, we want to know the effect of knowledge and attitudes of patients on their compliance in using amoxicillin antibiotics. Methods: This study was an observational study with a cross section approach, a purposive sampling method by giving questionnaires to 100 respondents who received amoxicillin in Arjuno Primary Health Care, Klojen District in April 2019. Research variables include knowledge, attitudes, and patient compliance in using amox- icillin antibiotics. Data analysis was performed to determine the effect of knowledge and attitudes of patients on compliance with amoxicillin antibiotic therapy. Results: The results showed that knowledge significantly influences the complience (sig = 0.00), while attitude does not significantly influence compliance in using amoxicillin antibiotics(sig = 0,136). Knowledge and atti- tude were known to have a significant effect on compliance with amoxicillin antibiotic therapy (sig = 0.00), the magnitude of the influence of the two variables (R2 = 16.7%). Conclusions: It can be concluded that the patient’s knowledge and attitude influences his compliance to an- tibiotic therapy.
