Antibiotics for urinary tract infection

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics for urinary tract infection


Avatar n tn You may not even have to bring your dog in for an exam if the urine is positive for a simple urinary tract infection (an infection without crystals). The vet can simply give appropriate antibiotics. If your dog has crystals in his urine, the crystals would need to be identified and treatment instituted. Crystals can be dangerous in male dogs because if they become large enough they can become lodged in the urethra and cause blockage (even in dogs, though more common in male cats).
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 18weeks & 3days and since i found out im pregnant i have had urinary tract continuously. I have been to a gynae abd a GP and they both did tests to check for any infection, and all tests came negative wit no sign of infection or anything negative, I drink cranberry juice and it doesnt help as well. Do any of you ladies experience the same thing, if so what can you recommend?
Avatar n tn I have had symptoms of a urinary tract infection every couple months for the past few years, and every time I would see a doctor they would prescribe me something for it. But not thinking it could do any harm, I would stop taking the medication whenever my symptoms would go away.

Avatar n tn Your dog definitely needs an anti-inflammatory medication to help with pain and swelling of the urinary tract, so give the etogesic a try. If it doesn't work, ask for either rimadyl or deramaxx. Another thing that is very beneficial at this time is CranAssure gel caps. I gave them to my dog who was in kidney failure and it really helped with the leaking issues. It's just concentrated cranberry juice, and the extra vitamin C will be beneficial right now. One a day should be fine.
Avatar n tn There are OTC herbal/omega treatments that boast they aid greatly in preventing UTI. I would ask your vet if he has a preference for one (or if it conflicts with his present treatment). The most important thing is to let your vet know of any additional treatments you try as the two of you seem to have a "game plan" in dealing with the issue. Has anyone else had any success with a particular brand of homeopathic treatment?
Avatar f tn Ok so I can't go to the dr to get diagnosed with an urinary tract infection but I think I may have one. Whenever I drink liquid at least half the time I get sharp pains in either the left side of my lower abdomen or the right side, not only then but whenever I feel that my bladder is full I get these pains until I relieve myself, so to speak. Is it possible this is an infection beginning? I'm think it might be, it would make sense right?
Avatar f tn Has anyone had a urinary tract infection Or cystitis during treatment. I had one four weeks ago that responded to antibiotics from the trial nurse. I am 20 weeks into the Gilead 5881 and 9541 trial with SOC. But three weeks later it came back and did not respond to the same antibiotics. Now I have to wait for the antibiotics to leave my system and get a culture done. Another four to five days of discomfort.
Avatar f tn In my 2nd pregnancy, at about 35 weeks, i got a urinary tract infection and had to go on antibiotics. No harm was done to the baby although he was born the next week. The doc said that the urinary tract infection can cause u to go into labor early and sure enuf i did...whether that was a coincidence or not, i will never know.
Avatar n tn thought it could be a urinary tract infection, so i took a home test and it was positive for white blood cells, and im pretty sure for nitrates as well (colors matched on back of bottle)..i was going overseas on vacation and had no time to see a doctor so i called and got a prescription for cipro, which was ineffective.
Avatar n tn Hello, UTI is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. Since bacteria can enter the urinary tract through the urethra (an ascending infection), poor toilet habits (such as wiping back to front for women) can predispose to infection, but other factors like pregnancy in women, prostate enlargement in men can also predispose to UTI. It may be that the antibiotics that you are taking is resistant to the organism that is causing UTI.
Avatar m tn I have urinary tract damage/infection. Actually my urine is bloody and it hurts when i pee. What medication do i need to use?
Avatar f tn I am 43yrs old female and have for past six weeks now urinary tract infection symptoms and been to several doctors and emergency room. I have spent a thousand dollars on treatment with no relief due to no insurance until January. I have had scan done on my kidneys and no stones. I have had blood work and urine cultures with no infection. I have been tested for STD's and none. They had me on ciproflaxin for 10 days at 500mg twice a day and doxycycline for 10 days at 100mg twice a day.
506273 tn?1260142381 I got my first dx of a urinary tract infection when I was 19(35 now), I'm sure I had many, many in the past. So, wents to a specialist and he said there may be a flap that is not letting all the urine out. I never went back. no insurance no money. As time went on I wouldn't even realize that I had one. I would go in for routine exams and bam there I was again on antibiotics. To the point I was on Levaquin and THAT didn't help. Anyway, my daughter went to the dr.
Avatar f tn E coli may connect with other bacteria in the urinary tract forming a layer or biofilm.This allows bacterial multiplication and causes an infection. It has been proven that the active compounds in cranberry juice and cranberry metabolites in the juice prevent E coli from sticking to other bacteria. This limits its ability to grow and multiply. It is best to see a doctor and take his advice whether cranberry juice alone will be helpful in treating urinary tract infections. Do write to me again.
1445082 tn?1284573610 I felt extreme pain in my left kidney right before being seen. A year after that I was hospitalized for a severe kidney infection and was told that I was close to becoming septic that, that was how long I had the infection. I was refered to a UROLOGIST but didn't have the insurance to go. I have been back and forth to the ER and they do the same just put me on anti biotics and refere me to a urologist to find out what is causing my recurrent UTI's.
