Suprax (cefixime) "My daughter was born with urinary reflux, the result of which is usually 1-2 urinary tract infections a year. Suprax ALWAYS knocks it out right away. We have tried many of the others. Some took longer and some didn't work at all. Only con is it is hard to get and you may have to order it at the pharmacy."

"I got 7 day cefixime course for UTI. One a day. After the 7 days, I now have had diarrhea for the last 6 days. Painful stomach cramps, gas, and lower intestine pain. During the treatment diarrhea was there but now I'm done, the diarrhea remains. I no longer have the UTI, but am unable to work due to 6 bouts a day of painful, gassy diarrhea."

"After 2 failed attempts to get rid of my UTI with bactrim (which I’ve suddenly developed an allergic reaction to) and another penicillin (that I apparently have developed an allergy to) I had 2 courses of Cefixime 400 mg back to back for UTI/ (and possible kidney infection, renal calculi and hematuria ) for streptococcus G. subsp.past. bacteria in urine. I felt about 20% relief after first week then BOOM extreme pain, hematuria etc. returned within 48 hours and new urine culture showed yet again strep gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus with new growth. Second Round, felt about 30-40% relief after full course, within 72 hours same thing. Waited 5 -7 days, another urine test and culture and again same thing. All I got was 2 yeast infections between each course (which was immediately relieved with 3 pills of fluconazole) and about 9 pounds of weight gain!! Has anyone else had weight gain with this antibiotic before?"

"2nd time taking cefixime 400 mg a day for 10 days. It took care of my UTI both times. This 2nd time , I noticed a little bit of gastrointestinal pain at times, but not bad. I don't taking antibiotics and have had reactions with some, so I dread taking them. I was glad to finally be able to take something with no bad reactions ! Hope it will stay that way if I need to take these again. I made sure I took it with food and took probiotics , along with yogurt."

"I was prescribed this after a hospital visit because if a painful UTI/bladder infection. First day I had no symptoms, it was great (I am highly sensitive to drugs). Second day, shit hit the fan (literally). I woke up in the middle of the night and was super sick. That stopped after about 12 hours. Then I was so bloated all the time, my sides were hurting from the pressure. I stopped taking it early (despite what my doctor said) and I'm still having the bloating and sickness. I would have rather had amoxicillin since that one has worked for me a couple times now without a problem."
