Should I take amoxil 500 mg after taking ciprofloxacin 500 mg for my urinary tract infection? I had a urinary tract infection so the doctor gave me ciprofloxacin 500 mg to take for 3 days. I took the last pill this morning, however, I feel like I still ha
Not unless sensitive. Best management of a UTI is for dr to get urine sample for culture & sensitivities before antiantibiotics are taken. Patient can start antibiotics as soon as sample is taken. Result will be ready in 48 hrs. And show which antibiotics will be effective against bacteria causing your uti. If bacteria are resistant, as yours are, an appropriate antibiotic can be selected, usually not amoxil (amoxicillin).
Hopefully . Hopefully the doctor took a sample of your urine and sent it to the lab for a urine culture. The reason this is done is to obtain identification and sensitivity results. This means that the type of bacteria causing the infection will be identified and the antibiotics that will work to erradicate the bacteria will also be identified, a well as those that will not work. I do not recommend you take amoxicillin. I suggest you call the doctor and inform them of your continued symptoms. Hopefully the culture was sent and the appropriate antibiotic can be started. If not then your doctor will likely send out a urine culture and start you another antibiotic and adjust accordingly. Good luck.
