My doctor gave me ciprofloxacine and it was ok, should I take this pill again or is there a better one?
It depends specifically on what type of bacteria is causing the infection - there are many causes for UTIs. When your urine is sent to the lab the bacteria is detected and treated with various antibiotics to determine what it best responds to. The lab test results are then sent to your doctor. If you are having frequent UTIs you need to determine the cause - a Urologist specializes in bladder and kidney disorders and can help discern the cause of the problem. Taking antibiotics repeatedly will result in bacteria becoming immune to the antibiotic. It is very important to only use them when absolutely necessary and when verified by positive lab tests. I suffer from Intersitial Cystitis, which often can appear like a UTI but is not. It isn't easy to treat, but is manageable. A Urologist can help a lot. Regards -
