Which antibiotics are used for bladder infections treatment?

Sensitivities needed. Best ways to treat UTI's are to first confirm that ones symptoms are from a documented bacterial infection. This is confirmed when a urine sample has been sent for culture and sensitivities and a bacteria grows and a panel of sensitivities is listed. This process usually takes 2 days.
