I just started taking clindamycin 300mg for a uti. Now my urine has a strong odor. Could the UTI have gotten worse?
If the bacteria causing your symptoms was not sensitive to the clindamycin, which a urine culture would be able to tell, then your infection might be getting worse.
I would not rely on odor alone as a sign that it is getting worse, though. Rather, persistent or worsened symptoms like burning with urination or having to go frequently should be relayed to your doctor. ...Read more
I am on second round of clindamycin 300 for a uti. I took it for seven days, the first week of september and on september 25. A test revealed that I am worse. What shouldi do?
Wrong antibiotic?: Failure to respond to an antibiotic may be due to the use of an agent that is ineffective for that particular bacteria. Another reason for failure may be an inadequate duration of therapy. Finally, inability to effectively treat the infection could result from a persistent focus of infection such as a stone. For these reasons, further testing such as an ultrasound of the kidneys is reasonable. ...Read more

Clinda won't work: Clindamycin is not active against most of the bacteria that cause UTIs, and there are no safe and effective over-the-counter or natural treatments.
