État des lieux concernant la pratique des médecins généralistes de Normandie Occidentale face aux suspicions d'allergies à l'amoxicilline, et évaluation du vécu et des connaissances des patients

Abstract : Introduction: An allergy to amoxicillin is often notified in the patient's medical records without documentation. It can contribute to the emergence of bacterial resistance and to the increase in healthcare costs. The objective was to evaluate the clinical practice of general practitioners in Occidental Normandy faced with these suspected allergies and to take an interest in the knowledge and clinical history of patients. Material and Methods: Descriptive study carried out by questionnaires distributed to patients and general practitioners in Occidental Normandy between february and december 2020. Results: 157 doctors and 156 patients answered. Allergy to amoxicillin was frequently reported following unspecific or unknown reactions. Half of the doctors reported regularly referring their patients to an allergologist while 90% of patients had never had an allergological assessment mainly because they had never heard of it. It would seem that the doctors practicing in Orne and the older ones would less refer their patients to an allergologist and that the older doctors would be less likely to declare a reaction to pharmacovigilance. Patients knowledge of amoxicillin was mainly that it is often prescribed as first-line therapy and the most well-known side effect was skin reactions. Conclusion: Potentially due to a lack of patient's education, only a few had performed an allergologicals tests. Improving the conditions for referral to an allergologist and the training of doctors would probably improve medical care.
