With antibiotics how long would it take for a UTI to go away ?

UTI

Antibiotic
Varies with the organism, type of UTI (lower vs. upper tract, etc.), the antibiotic employed, the immune status of the patient and a variety of other factors. Symptomatically it should begin to resolve in 24-48 hours if the organism causing it is sensitive to the antibiotic used.

I have been on antibiotic for 1 1/2 days for severe uti. how long does it take for antibiotics to work?

Within a day

Antibiotic
Great question. Since UTI's are painful, effective therapy can alleviate this symptom within a day. However, other symptoms, depending on the severity of infection, may take up to a week (fever, malaise) or so to abate (eg.flank pain).If symptoms smolder, inform your prescriber immedately- antibiotics may need to be adjusted. Hopefully, a urine culture was intially done to guide antibiotic choice.

How long does it take antibiotics to cure a uti?

Thanks for asking!

Antibiotic
If truly a simple, uncomplicated UTI (females)and have been placed on the appropriate antibiotic, 1-3 days of antibiotic will usually kill the bacteria though symptoms due to the inflammation may take longer. In men, 5-7 days of treatment more routine.

What to do if I just started antibiotics for a uti. how long does it take to work on the pain?

Varies 1 - 3 days

Pills
Provided antibiotics are effective against type of bacteria causing the UTI. Hence, urologists always get a urine culture specimen before putting patient on an antibiotic in case UTI causing bacteria are resistant to the prescribed antibiotic.

highly unlikely to cure UTI without substances that kill bacterias. the treatment kills bacteria after a single dose if it is acute infection. if chronic UTI the treatment may last up to 2 weeks

about how long does it take a uti to go away under antibiotics? i been taking for 3 days now and it still burns when i urinate.

3 days

Burns
Most UTIs are effetively treated in 3-5 days, if you are on the right antibiotic. It's also possible that a UTI is not the only cause of your symptoms. If they persist, you might benefit from a visit to your gynecologist or even an urologist.

On 4th day of antibiotics for UTI, still have some burning after peeing and the urge to urinate. How long does it take to go away?

UTI treatment

Antibiotic
Uncomplcated urinary tract infections in young women are usually easily eradicated. With some antibiotics like Cipro, signs and symptoms disappear in a day or two. With sulfa type medications treatment may take much longer to clear the infection.

Dr. Loren Cohen answered:

How long will antibiotics take to work on a UTI?

Usually within a day

Antibiotic
If symptoms caused by a UTI such as burning or a cloudy or bloody appearance don't begin to improve by 2 or 3 days, there is a good chance that the antibiotic isn't working or the symptoms are do to something other than infection.
