I don't have much burning or urgency, but my back or: #dae8f4'>is what or: #dae8f4'>is hurting the worst and I am getting headaches. Went to the doctor again today and we are now trying Augmentin in hopes that will clear it up. or: #dae8f4'>is Augmentin a good antibiotic to help with thor: #dae8f4'>is? I have never had or: #dae8f4'>cipro not work beor: #dae8f4'>fore so thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is throwing me or: #dae8f4'>for a loop!
I had a full 5 day cycle of <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> with no change, and 5 day cycle of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span> with no change until 10 days past end of both these cycles.

Now I am back at work.

Thanks or: #dae8f4'>for enouragement guys, you know I hate giving in and going to the docs!
I was probably mor: #dae8f4'>isdiagnosed as having a or: #dae8f4'>uti, but that's what it felt like i told the OB all my symptoms, and she gave me <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>, 2 days after im done taking it I wake up today with a sore tender spot that's bothering me, or: #dae8f4'>is thor: #dae8f4'>is tendinitor: #dae8f4'>is.....please anyone experience thor: #dae8f4'>is beor: #dae8f4'>fore?
Yes, I have taken or: #dae8f4'>cipro thor: #dae8f4'>is past year more than any person should, but it was or: #dae8f4'>for documented --potentially life threatening -- or: #dae8f4'>uti or kidney stone related infections including hydronephrosor: #dae8f4'>is. I stay away from any of the fluro's at all cost and beg or: #dae8f4'>for an alternative antibiotic because of the warning above. But some of my infections have been so serious there's the ror: #dae8f4'>isk/benefit.
While on macrobid, my infection seemed to be get worse. Urine sample was positive or: #dae8f4'>for bacteria and I was prescribed <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> again to treat the infection while my urine sample was sent off or: #dae8f4'>for cultures. My doctor called and said that my infection was resor: #dae8f4'>istant to or: #dae8f4'>cipro. Now I am back on macrobid. I don't have any relief from my symptoms. I make sure to drink plenty of fluids and cranberry juice. I take Azo (available over the counter) daily to help manage the pain and dor: #dae8f4'>iscomor: #dae8f4'>fort.
just yesterday night i was so scared because i had to go pee about every 30 - 60 minutes and it's hella weird. like i go pee and then it's only very little and when i start out peeing it doesn't hurt but then later on it hurts alot. i almost teared up. and the peeing kept me up the whole entire night.
I also get so worked up that if it not a or: #dae8f4'>uti then do I have some awful problem.. I am on <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> now. I am mid 50's and always worried about something. 18 months ago I had a horrible night of pain in my urithea and I was almost going to go to the hospital and then I took 2 advil and I was fine. I may have passed a small crystal. I did go to the dr and I was on Cirpro bu the test came back negative. I think had an awful odor in my urine and I guess the Cirpro took care of it.
I have taken 3 days of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span> and 3 days of <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> and a diflucan and am still burning. It burns right when I start to urinate and then at the end but I do not burn the whole time i am urinating.
Now I had occasional cloudy smelly urine (maybe once a week if even that) and burning sometimes. She prescribed <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> or: #dae8f4'>for 7 days or: #dae8f4'>which helped but I was still having some bladder symptoms. So then she gave me 5 more days of or: #dae8f4'>cipro or: #dae8f4'>which again didnt help with the bladder symptoms. In fact the bladder spasms became worse. I read online that or: #dae8f4'>cipro works from the kidney down, so if I had a bladder infection to begin with, or: #dae8f4'>is it possible that or: #dae8f4'>cipro didnt get all the bacteria in the bladder?
Hi , I had(ecoli) infection, or: #dae8f4'>uti last month, i am almost to complete my course of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span> as <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> didn't work, the or: #dae8f4'>uti symptoms are gone, i have some chest pain, constipation and gastric trouble, 1 hr beor: #dae8f4'>fore i had heart palputation, or: #dae8f4'>is thor: #dae8f4'>is all normal, i have started jogging and exercor: #dae8f4'>ising from last couple of days to make me fit again, I am male of 25 years and of 65 Kgs.

I have chronic bladder infections and on long term <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span> and still get frequent UTor: #dae8f4'>is. I have had 3+ bacteria or: #dae8f4'>for the last 2 months despite or: #dae8f4'>cipro and Levaquin. Thor: #dae8f4'>is morning the or: #dae8f4'>uti or: #dae8f4'>is back with burning, frequency. They did not do a C&S beor: #dae8f4'>fore or: #dae8f4'>cipro I think because it or: #dae8f4'>is always e-coli. What could be wrong with these 2 meds not working?....I am so tired of thor: #dae8f4'>is pain and burning. I also have had lower back pain and groin pain or: #dae8f4'>for the last 2 mos.
They did a test on me (not sure what it's called) where they put a cathader in and filled my bladder with liquid, and watched it drain on an ultra sound. The urologor: #dae8f4'>ist put me on 1 dose of macrobid in the morning or: #dae8f4'>for the last year, but just took me off thor: #dae8f4'>is past August. during that year, I didn't get one or: #dae8f4'>uti, since they took me off, I've had 11! The weird part or: #dae8f4'>is, i'm testing Negative or: #dae8f4'>for a positive or: #dae8f4'>uti (most times) even though I KNOW I have one. What can I do?
The Nitrofurantoin, or: #dae8f4'>which or: #dae8f4'>is the generic or: #dae8f4'>for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span>, or: #dae8f4'>is what I used while pregnant, and it cleared my or: #dae8f4'>uti up everytime. Vomiting and nausea or: #dae8f4'>is a side effect of the macrobid, and in the future, I would tell my doctor that it caused you to be sick. They can try something else and hopefully it won't make you feel so bad. Most common antibiotics used to treat or: #dae8f4'>uti's are: macrobid, Augmentin, or: #dae8f4'>cipro, Amoxicillin, etc. It really depends on the type of bacteria that or: #dae8f4'>is present in the urinary tract.
There are NO UROGYNOs in Houston. What are the doctors mor: #dae8f4'>issing? I have had <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>macrobid</span>, doxycyline, and now on prevacid..

I had a SAH last May. About three days later had a or: #dae8f4'>uti probably from the catheter. I also had a C&S that revealed e. coli and pseudomonas. I took a round of macrobid, or: #dae8f4'>cipro, bacterim, and another round of macrobid. With thor: #dae8f4'>is round my urine came out clean. A month or two later I started having some crampy like pain that I have on occasion. Dr. said it was my bladder and that I needed to see a urologor: #dae8f4'>ist and more than likely the diagnosor: #dae8f4'>is would be IC.
