antibiotics

Do any of you have anything that you used to relief the discomforts of a UTI? I have one and could not sleep last night because I was going to the bathroom every 10 minutes with only a trickle. I realize I need antibiotics and will get them but until the prescription is called in I am so uncomfortable!! My bladder is contracting over and over again and I feel like I have to pee so bad but can't. I think there is some blood there, too. It's not spotting, it's in the urine. Any ideas??

Sometimes UTI tests can be faulty, it is important to let some urine escape b/4 you collect-your sample should be mid-stream. It is a good idea to eat yogurt or take probiotics while on antibiotics to keep intestinal flora in balance. Good luck, I hope you find an answer soon.
I officially have found the cure for my UTI after not responding to antibiotics for one and a half months. I decided to go the natural r...oute and this is what I have found. I wanted a cheap and easy to find natural cure. Cheapest option: Drink garlic tea 4 time a day for 7 to 10 days to kill the bacteria(make fresh and hot each time 1 clove per cup of purified water. Boil water then pour on chopped up garlic let steep for 15 mins).
i am tempted to try to get hold of more antibiotics a different type but there is no bacteria in my urine (apparently) so now I am wondering if the uti is the cause of the brain fog. i dont know what to think. i think i am just going to try another type but I just dont want to do anyhting to make this worse, I have read everywhere about candidal overgrowth being a cause for brain fog and antibiotics will be making that worse!
Have you ever taken any over-the - counter 'worm' treatment - the one that springs to mind is 'mebendazol' - it is used to treat different species of worm - not sure on all the details - it is given to children as well as adults - perhaps ask your doc. I guess you have researched - vitamin/mineral - deficiency. Here is a list of poss. symptoms of 'parasites' Inability to gain/lose weight - chronic candida - yeast inf.- chronic sinus or ear inf.- urinary tract inf.
Ampicillin and Erythromycin can e used to treat both. Yes, the antibiotics used to treat E.coli can be used to treat the infections caused by CT/UU. However, it depends on the culture report whether the organisms are sensitive to the antibiotics or not. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
I used antibiotics around 8-9 weeks and read thongs about what was given to me. I freaked but took it anyway and put it in Gods hands. Im now 33w3d along. Your doctor wouldn't give you something to hurt you or the baby.
I was given a prescription for Norfloxacin to treat a UTI, diagnosed as cystitis. Based on information I've read online, this looks like a strong and potentially dangerous antibiotic to take for what I understand to be a common UTI. I am not completely comfortable with the circumstances in which I was given this antibiotic, which may be contributing to my doubts. Is this a reasonable antibiotic for me to take?
As specialmom said, the antibiotics used to treat UTIs can cause a rebound yeast infection, but it's really hard to get a yeast infection of the urinary system. Sexual intercourse can cause both, though. If it's just the outer area that hurts when you pee and you also itch, it's probably a yeast infection. If your urine is cloudy, you have a fever, and you have belly or low back pain, it's more likely a UTI (UTIs don't have to present this way though). Go to the doctor's and get it checked.
I developed a UTI on 23rd December. I used to have a history of UTI. I used to get them 2 or 3 times a year. On 2 occasions the UTI went to my kidneys and I was hospitalised and given IV anti-biotics. (On one of these occasions it was during my pregnancy). However I have been UTI free for 5 years, until this week. I saw my doctor who suggested I take a course of Cipro antibiotics.
delivery, they ran a few tests and found out i have a UTI. they prescibed me Macrobid (a lot of other drugs used to treat them contain Sulfa & i'm highly allergic) well here's the thing. i looked some stuff up and i found this link, along w/ many others http://www.aboutlawsuits.com/birth-defects-linked-to-antibiotics-6733/ ^ i guess Macrobid is linked to birth defects. should i ask for a different med? is there any way to get rid of a UTI w/out medication? (maybe a lot of water?
They can try something else and hopefully it won't make you feel so bad. Most common antibiotics used to treat UTI's are: Macrobid, Augmentin, Cipro, Amoxicillin, etc. It really depends on the type of bacteria that is present in the urinary tract. In general, Macrobid (Nitrofurantoin), is used specifically to treat UTI's. Holding your urine too long can cause you to have a UTI or urethritis. Also, having the urge to urinate frequently can be a sign of overactive bladder or a UTI.
When i went to the ER they told me i had a UTI so he prescribed me pills Amoxil to take to get rid of it my step mother told me to eat yogurt and that should help not get a yeast infection. But lately I've been real dry but i still have discharge and i'm itchy to it doesnt burn to pee just feels itchy and dry when i wipe but i'm still having discharge so is it possible that i could have a yeast infection anyways? and how do they treat it while you are pregnant?
Could you please tell me if Trimethoprim is normaly used to treat Chlamydia? I read about Tetracyciline and Doxiciline which are normaly given to treat chlamydia and i know that Trimethoprim is to treat urine and chest infection. Thank you very much again.
How good does cranberry suppliements( im not a big fan of drinking the juice) work? Also should I go on antibiotics, and hope it helps both or treat each seperatly over the counter? Any recommendations? Thanks!
Hey Jen, Macrobid (as they say the yellow and black pill) is also for UTI and is not harmful to baby unless you breast feed or you take the drug in the last 2-4 weeks of pregnancy. Its actually a class B drug. Bactrim is a class C drug, which means you would have a higher chance of harming the baby, although, there are many women who doctors prescribe bactrim to.
On another matter please can anyone advise what is the best thing to do about probiotics? I assumed that it is best to take them in a week's time when antibiotics course has finished so would appreciate some input. I have made an appointment to go to see GP in a week to make sure infection has cleared up and review steroid position. I don't often have a rant and am probably known more for my calm, reasonably happy outlook but watch out this sparkysarah feels a little close to igniting.
You could check the sensitivities of the organism in the urine to see if it is sensitive to Flagyl or Clindamycin--if so, one antibiotic would treat both problems--that seems very reasonable to me. You may need to be evaluated for why you are having so many UTIs too. Have you tried vegetable oil as a lubricant? Sounds a little silly, ( I wouldn't mix with vinegar!) but it rarely causes reactions!
I have not yet found on the Web where this drug is used to treat my condition. My Dr. says this drug is good for a number of things. I explained to him in the beginning that I may have step throat. I had the flu back in the winter and could never get rid of the cough. Since I have been taking the prescribed medicine it has cleared my cough. Can someone kindly reply. In my Pap Smear I was DX with Strep 2 I need to know how did this occur. This only happens with women that are pregnant.
As far as the medications that they give you to treat the UTI, those would be anitbiotics. I had another UTI very early in this pregnancy, fortunately presenting with symptoms that I could recognize. I took the anitbiotics and the UTI went away and my baby is doing fine. These are just my personal experiences with this topic. I know nothing about fertility issues in general.
Basically it is where you get burning and discomfort and it feels like you have a UTI but you don't, I also was getting the urethral spasms that were very painful, I am now on a drug called Vesicare and it has helped, my urologist thinks my problem will eventually go away ( I hope so), he said some of my problems are neurological as well. Vesicare is also used to treat bladder urgency in MS and bladder spasms in MS.
Most of the times that I used to get treated my wife used to as well. It is not just a female problem, males get it too. All the best.
At this point I think that the most reasonable way to proceed is to obtain a renal ultrasound from a facility that is used to doing ultrasounds on children and, if the ultrasound is normal do a series of urine cultures. Here a PUC urine every month or two with a cath specimen obtained before treatment for any positive PUC samples would seem reasonable. If she does have a definite urinary tract infection, then she should undergo a voiding study.
i just googled bacterial vaginosis to see if it could be passed to a partner to infect hair folicles and right away i found one that said that it can cause hair folicle infection.. and also what i noticed in another one was that if both people are not properly treated for it they will often reinfect eachother.. well she got full treatment for it while i did not.. and after all cleared up and she was better.. we had sex again and she immediately had a uti and infection again the next day...
I have not been able to find anything in books or on the internet on how to treat UTIs with natural remedies and other non-prescription alternatives. Also, I take all the recomended preccautions for preventing bladder infections. This includes liquid inake, cleanliness, and the whole shebang. I even qvoid all foods and drinks which are known to irritate the bladder.
I'm concerned because I'm not entirely sure I trust the doctors here. They seem to treat all STD's with the same shotgun approach. Could this be a UTI instead of a NGU? Something non-sexually transmitted that is being misdiagnosed? I’m also worried that the doctor here will just prescribe more Ofloxacin which may not be the best treatment. What should the next step be? Is it common to treat NGU by taking the same antibiotic for extended periods?
Anyway, foul smelling urine could be related to what your drink (it used to happen with me, now I only drink water) and the need to urinate may be related to cold temperature. It could also be an infection but since I'm not a doctor, I really recommend you to talk to your doctor. Tell him everything about it. B) Well, I don't know. Anyway, if you have a bacterial infection, you would probably need antibiotics. To get antibiotics you need a doctor prescription.
they advised that I take the AZO (the OTC medicine to treat the symptoms) when I was pregnant and had a UTI, however I was on antibiotics as well. you don't want to take it without being seen first because you could be covering up worsening symptoms and the infection could get worse without you noticing because you can't feel the burning or pain...so I would hold off until your dr okays it or you start on antibiotics.
