Can z pack clear up a uti. So painful to pee and I am on zpack for sinus infection and bronchitis?
Not in your scenario: Though certain bacteria can be susceptible to azithromycin, in your case it is not. Symptoms of a uti, when treated with the appropriate antibiotic, goes away within 24 hours...If you still have pain when peeing, I would recommend calling your doctor to determine if you need a different antibiotics or additional diagnostics to determine the reason for your pain.See 1 more doctor answer
I woke up with a UTI and in a panic took one pill from my husbands Z pack. Now if I need cipro (ciprofloxacin) can I not take it today? I'm on vacation in Mexico
No, it: Won't affect the efficacy of another antibiotic. You can take additional antibiotics if indicated. But please don't rely on self diagnosis and self medication. If you can get to a health care provider, get evaluated and receive proper treatment.
Can a Z pack be given for a UTI? I absolutely refuse to take fluoroquinolone meds such as Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and I'm allergic to Penicillin
Question unclear: If you have received a course of Azithromycin you can develop urinary tract infection during or immediately afterwards if the bacteria was resistant. If not, the Azithromycin will last several days in your system and you could then become reinfected or relapse very shortly after completing the course.
Took azithromycin 1g a week ago. If I do a culture or urine test today for gonhorrea and UTI will it be negative even if I have any of those?
Not likely: If you have / re-contracted these, after a week, likely will be positive.

Uva Ursi: Once abnormal bacteria have established in the urinary system, the best remedy is oral antibiotics. Home preventatives may include increasing water intake and pure cranberry supplement. Evidence exists that the herb Uva Ursi (oral preparation) helps prevent the bacteria E. Coli (a very common urine pathogen) from adhering to the bladder wall, preventing infection.
Took 1g of zithromax for chlamydia on 4/3, was also diagnosed with UTI on 4/1. Still feel frequency and painful urination. Which one is causing this?
I have access to azithromycin not to flagyl at this moment I get reoccurring bacterial vaginitis or vaginosis (difference?) and a UTI will it help?
Daughter was diagnosed with UTI given 5 days of Zithromax 500 MG. 102 fever 4 days, back pain, nausea. Concerned kidney infection. Will Zithromax work?
Not if worsening: Call pcp or proceed to the ER. Need appropriate treatment immediately. Agree kidney infection or complicated/infected kidney stone are possible; but also pelvic inflammatory disease and some other possibilities.
I was diagnosed for UTI & chlamydia. I was on 7 days cipro, and took azithromycin in the middle. On last day of cipro & still peeing often. What now?
I have UTI and im on Ciproflaxocin (2nd day). My body aches, fever, throat and chills... Nurse recommended I now take Azithromycin as well..
Doesn't make sense: Azithromycin is not active against most antibiotics that cause UTI. Also UTIs are rare in males your age and not a likely cause of such symptoms. If the nurse thinks you might have chlamydia, azithromycin would be a good choice, but also unlikely for these symptoms. You need more diagnostic testing before adding azithro or any other antibiotic. Discuss w/ nurse; or even better, see the doctor.
