Shocking research: Prozac could be driving the antibiotic resistance crisis

The misuse and overuse of antibiotic drugs in both humans and animals has played a large part in the development of these “superbugs,” but a recent study has warned that the use of other medications is also driving the development of antibiotic resistance.  
The study, published in the journal Environment International, confirmed that the antidepressant drug fluoxetine – commonly known as Prozac or Sarafem – “directly causes multi-antibiotic resistance via genetic mutation.”
