Bacterial sensitivit: Your doctor should have your urine culture checked for sensitivity to specific antibiotics. Hopefully both bacteria are sensitive to one antibiotic but if not, two may be required. Some bacteria become resistant to certain antibiotics so sensitivities are the way to go especially if the urinary tract infection persist.

See answer : Most UTIs due to single bacteria with E. coli being most common cause of uncomplicated UTI. Pseudomonas or two different cultured organisms considered complicated UTI and most often hospital-acquired due to catheterization. Results of antibiotic susceptibility from urine culture should guide treatment. Klebsiella sensitive to most oral antibiotics. Pseudomonas: oral Cipro/Levaquin or IV antibiotic
