Ive been taking antibiotics for a UTI for going on 4 days now but can't seem to get rid of it. Is it okay to take Cystex or Azo for the pain and discomfort while on antibiotics and how long to wait before I go see the doctor if it does it go away?

4 days: You can take Azo while you are on antibiotics for a UTI; however, you should follow the directions and not use Azo longer than recommended in the directions.

You need to see your doctor tomorrow and ask about this. Best wishes! ...Read more

UTI for little over week. No antibiotics, will see doctor Monday. Is it too long should I see emergency care?

No..definitely not: Many different types of microbes can cause UTI in a women. It could be yeast, many different types of bacteria, or even parasites like Trichomonas vaginalis. As long as your not having fever and chills, back pain, blood in your urine...I think you'll be ok to wait 1 more day. Going to the ER is fine....but its costly..you'll have a large copay I'm sure and maybe billed after the fact. ...Read more
