At our last visit with his urologist five days ago, I asked about putting him on some sort of prophylactic antibiotic for the UTIs, as he becomes confused when he has one. The doctor prescribed Macrobid
. Unbeknownst to me, he was already on Bactrim
for this purpose. The nurse at his assisted living facility pointed this out to me, so his primary doctor discontinued the Bactrim and he’s been on the Macrobid. Since he started this, he’s been more tired and complained of feeling weaker.
