A 30-year-old female asked:

Can you take amoxicillin for UTIs?

Not reliable: If you have had a positive urine culture for a bacteria known to be senstivie to amoxicillin, it will work very well. However, many bacteria that cause UTI are resistant to it, and amoxicillin should not be used for UTI's if testing hasn't been done. Definitely do not treat yourself with leftover amoxicillin. Discuss with your doctor and follow her advice.

If the culture confirms sensitivity and you cannot tolerate Bactrim or nitrofurantoin, then it is reasonable to try (ensuring that prior cultures if present have not shown resistant pathogen). If there is resistance or worsening - doctor
