How long after starting bactrim will it take for an uti to clear up? I'm going on day 3 and it still feels like my bladder isn't emptying completely.

How long does cloudy urine take to clear up after taking antibiotics for a UTI for 3 days? I've been drinking lots of water and cranberry juice.

The important thing is whether UTI symptoms themselves are improving: painful or urgent urination, and so on. If so, the UTI is getting better. If not, contact your doctor. And by the way, cranberry doesn't treat or prevent UTI. Drink it if you like it, otherwise no need. ...Read more
