Common Questions and Answers about How long to take augmentin for uti


Avatar m tn I got diagnosed with epididymitis a week ago and the pain has just now began to leave. Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis.
493068 tn?1224768915 Took 2 months (in 10 day increments) on bactim 800 and one month on low dose bactrim to cure. 2nd UTI in July treated with Augmentin no culture or UA done. 3rd UTI Oct positive for ecoli over 100000 was resistant to alot of meds so puton macrobid 7 days. Within 48 hours of stopping macrobid symptoms came back culture showed ecoli again and same macrobid for 7 days. Then symptoms returned and again ecoli put inpt on imipenem for 10 IV doses and dc with macrobid for 7 days.
Avatar m tn Were you brain fogged? Did you have a culture done and which antibiotics did you take and for how long? How long have you had this for? Did your urine samples come back as negative but your symptoms remain? Do you feel like your brain has never gone back to normal? I pray that mine will I cannot function as normal like this never mind be a dentist. After a 2 week course of augmentin i felt like my brain was back to normal but it took a the whole 2 weeks of slight improvement each day.
Avatar n tn Back in July I had an UTI and was treated for it with cipro. The symptoms never seemed to go away. I to would have vaginal burning. I was treated again for the symptoms, but the burning just wouldn't go away. I went to the gyno. They did a swab and she said she did she a few clue cells, but everything looked normal. She wented ahead and gave me Flagyl for Bacterial vaginosis and Diflucan to take after finishing the Flagyl.
739070 tn?1338607002 I wish I was inclined to tell you medically the correct thing to do for the better of you. I'm not. I will tell you, I wouldn't miss that for the world. I'd have to take that chance to be there to watch her get her White Coat that she deserves, after all of your hard work and hers to get there. Trust me, she wants and needs you there as bad and as much as you want to be there.
Avatar m tn How long does it takes for fungal infection to heal? I am still getting irritation on my skin where it was infected. I stop using the cream when i feel no irritation , after a while it comes back. I need some guidance here.
Avatar f tn -Is it possible for me to have given my partner HSV-1 from my oral to his genitals, and it just hasn't had time to come up on the test? - is it possible to pass HSV-1 back and forth genitally? Sorry for the long post and many questions. Any advice is so appreciated. I haven't been able to sleep and I have just been freaking out for an entire week. His doctor said it will take weeks to get the culture back, and that he doesn't need to retake his negative blood test.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know how long it will take to get rid of this burning? It is awful. Does anyone know how long it will take for all of this cream to come out? Please do not take the one day if you have an infection. I seriously am in more discomfort than I was before I started any treatment. This product needs to be banned and taken off the market!!!!
560501 tn?1383616340 So sad that it takes so little to throw me off. I have one more day of antibiotics myself for the sinus infection (Augmentin). I really want to start the Midodrine but might just wait till next weekend in case of how it might affect me at first...especially after that dizziness the first time. I suppose I could try it out for one dose when it's the least risky this week...since it's so short acting. That's one thing I don't like about it. I wish it were a one a day kind of medication.
Avatar f tn The fine line is wether you take it to change how and what you feel, not what it is prescribed for. I drank to change how and what I was feeling and thinking, not just to be social , surely not that. I did it maybe to be able to be social. Not feel on the outside. Hey some of us with meetings under our belts have heard all this, I write this for those who havn't.
Avatar f tn (and I got an ear infection while on the augmentin, how I have no idea! lol) Z pack 1x a day for 5 days. Augmentin 500 mg 3x a day for 10 days. Never missed or skipped a dose, all taken exactly as ordered. I am currently taking: Tussionex Pennkinetic Suspension MPI one tablespoon every 12 hours (taking it only at bedtime though since it makes me so sleepy, and I have two kids I am solely responsible for during the day while my husband is at work.
173975 tn?1216261375 guess i just haveta wait for the antibiotics to work. Dr. said to see him Friday if i wasn't better but i am, especially in comparison to how i felt tuesday. I'm so tired of dealing with Dr.'s, insurance stuff, medical records, meds, pharmacies . . . it's a good thing i'm not working coz this is a full time job. i ask for advice here coz if other people have had similar stuff i know i probably don't haveta worry . . . . 58 down 14 to go.
Avatar m tn Having UTI for the past 3yrs with symptoms like: burning sensation, whitish discharge, back pain, unclear sight, skin rashes, weakness &others . Mcs reveals its staphylococcus aureus and at times spp. Taking so many antibiotics including: Augmentin, ciprofloxacin, ceftriazone, cefuroxime and many others. all to no avail. Currently undergoing a pelvis x-ray and sfa mcs. What effect could this have on my fertility and other vital organs like kidney which is part of d urinary system?
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar m tn By reading online and One of my Urologist told me that I need to ejaculate more after I take the medicine. Let me know how it works out for you. What medicine are you on right now ?
Avatar n tn so then the yeast over grow and you're left in misery - i know it sucks, and it happens every time i take ANY antibiotic that isn't for a UTI. Penicillin, Biaxin, Augmentin, you name it - if i have to take it for more than 7 days i'll get a yeast infection. Simple solution to this - talk to you OB/GYN about this.
Avatar m tn Prostatitis is usually not a side effect of use of flomax, indeed it can happen due to BPH, for which flomax is used as treatment. It would be better to get prostrate examination done by a urologist and take opinion for surgery for resolving these symptoms. Choice of antibiotics depends upon the kind of organism affecting the prostrate. Best.
Avatar m tn honey you are a half step away from having to use insulin to treat your diabetes!! diabetics are prone to yeast issues as well as skin infections in general. at this point you should be following up properly on this with a dermatologist. this is not a std related issue so further questions should be in a more appropriate forum.
Avatar m tn Antibiotics can also disrupt the normal intestinal flora and cause you to allow a bacteria called Clostridium difficile to take over. You need to get cultured for this. It s a stool (fecal) culture. See your doctor (not the nurse) and ask to have this done. If it is positive they will actually have to treat you with another bacteria to get rid of it plus you will need to take probiotics. Sometimes it can reoccur If it does they may retreat you. I can help if that happens .
Avatar m tn He did tests which all came back negative for any STD - urine and microbiology tests. He thought it was some kind of an UTI and prescribed me augmentin for treatment. After a week on this antibiotic I didn't feel much better, although the symptoms were changing - somewhat less burning, showing up in the morning after I wake up. He suggested I also visit urologist. The urologist examined my prostate and it was inflated. At that time a rash was visible on the head of the penis, slightly burning.
Avatar n tn He was told to take Augmentin for 7 days again. Was this long enough? Does this mean his infection is being caused by the prostate or coming from the urinary tract. Is he being treated properly? He had no symptoms to begin with. How do we know if he gets it again (since he had no symptoms to begin with). How do we prevent this from happening again and finally is this something I may have given him and I should have been treated as well.
Avatar m tn I know that this is not the urology forum, but from your experience, is bacterial prostatitis curable? How long does it take? As you can imagine, I am entering an extreme state of depression.
Avatar m tn You take one tablet and apply the cream to the end of your penis for about a week (7 - 10 days) the cream should sooth the itching, but you should still continue to use the cream even after it feels better for as long as 7 - 10 days so to makesure all the candida has gone because you have had it for quite a while. You can buy this from a chemist, or you can go into a shop such as boots or superdrug or even asda.
405614 tn?1329147714 ), and so on. I would have gotten carpel tunnel looking for all that stuff, and figuring out how to get it here on time. I may try more on-line shopping next year; sounds like a good idea. I don't like to use my debit card online, though. For my roommate I could have gotten a credit card from her, hmmmm.... I'd prefer a can of Progresso chicken barley soup to McDonalds! That's what I had for Thanksgiving. The good thing about my tummy troubles is I've now lost 13 pounds.
Avatar n tn They are somewhat more muted, but I'm still I'm very disappointed. How long does it take to clear up, if this is what it is? 4. I've recently contracted these symptoms after being with a new partner. What should he be tested for? 5. I have a second opinion with an OBGYN scheduled for next Tuesday, since the first doctor who diagnosed me treated me with such disdain and couldn't really explain much about what it is. I finish the erythromycin on Monday.
Avatar n tn   Let me note that I am not one to go to a doctor.  I have an unhealthy fear of medical treatment.  All of these trips for medical intervention were acts of pure bravery and desperation.   Luckily, I had a tick attach itself to me in June this year, and got prophylactic doxycycline.  That may have made me feel the best of all the antibiotics, although I credit Levaquin for clearing up the infection in the flesh in my nose.  Doxycycline just made me feel healthy, and gave me endurance.
443434 tn?1255894833 I am the original poster and look at all of the people that posted below me with the same exact issue. I was given Cipro for a MILD UTI, never should have given it to me and I am to this day very upset about it.
Avatar n tn I went to see my doctor today and from the cultures done last time finally I found out I have strep B, the doctor was very understanding and has now given me a course of penacilin and 2 tablets to avoid getting a yeast infection - 1 to take before the penacilin and 1 to take at the end of the course. I too am trying to research on the net but keep finding info for pregnant women.. I am 27 and definitely NOT pregnant.
Avatar n tn I am in my mid twenties and have had excessive vaginal wetness (aka large puddle on the bed, needing to take a break during intercourse to wipe off) when I become aroused as long as I can remember. I don't think most people understand how annoying and sexually dissatisfying this is. I am so frustrated every time I ask for help most people just say how lucky I am (definatly don't feel that way).
