... doctor order it long enough?
Drug is usually given for 3 to 5 days and a new culture and sensitivity is obtained. If results indicate presence pos. then therapy is continued for a total of 7 to 10 days.ADULTS TAKE 3 MG PER KG OF BODY WEIGHT daily. Often in three divided doses, if it is IV therapy. For very srious infections 5 mg per kg is indicated. This is a strong drug and has an increase in side errects with extended use. You needed a urine C+S. You should get another urine culture to check bac. levels before continuing more meds. Ask your doc about giving a urine sample, esp. if you have burning with or without urination, redness or any change in mental status. I know that seems nutty, but uti can often cause mental changes, mostly confusion and more often in older adults. Get better! Feel better! TWO
