No.


Doxy/metro have no effect on UTIs; you should probably take some nitrofurantoin or a cephalosporin, or bactrim for that. Talk to your doctor!

No


Metronidazole treats anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that grow in environments without oxygen). Bladder infections are caused by aerobic bacteria (bacteria that require oxygen), so metronidazole won't work.

Ciprofloxacin with metronidazole can control many patients with Crohn's. Not used enough!

First why is it?


The most important question for bladder infections is why did it happen. Most recurrence is relapse. Could be anatomic issue, colonization with bad bugs, related to intercourse (esp w/diaphragm-spermicide), change in urinary tract mucosa with menopause. Prevention is linked to the cause and once that is known, prevention is strategic working against the causes.
