Hello,

Take this medication by mouth usually twice daily, or as directed by your doctor. Take cefuroxime (ceftin) with food to increase absorption and reduce stomach upset. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.

Take care.-

its used to treat a number of bacterial infections. if you are a female on birth control, use a back up method as this medication will decrease the effectiveness of your birth control. i have always been prescribed cipro for UTI's, but there are different treatments. if it does not work, maybe you can suggest cipro to your dr. if you are still have pain during urination, you can go to your local pharmacy or walmart and buy some AZO STANDARD. it relieves painful urination. it will stain your underwear tho, so u may want to wear some kind of protection such as a pantyliner. hope this helps!
