Which medication to take for UTI? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
Hello Doctor. There is a problem with my wife and looks like UTI
Can you describe the symptoms in detail?
She is taking ZENFLOX UTI table since last two days which was presciribed to her by gynec i past. Whenever she used to have this kind of pain, she took this tablet and the pain would siffice.
She is having pain on stomach on left side of naval. She is having continuous discharge of white liquid from her vagina.
She is feeling little dipressed and getting vomating sensations.
okPain in stomach can be due to many reasons
can you please help me and suggest me medicine as we can't XXXXXXX docotor personally due to heavy rain and flood like sitaution
There can be other causes too
How long has she been taking zenflox?
she is having such problem and she was given the above medicine by gynec which used to help her.
I understand that
she just told me that she is having lot of leg pain as well last night.
But now we will need to know whether her infection is controlled or not and how long would she need the antibiotics
Does she have back pain?
She started this medicine again from Monday and till now she has taken 5 tablets.... One in morning and other post dinner
While sleeping only she is having back pain
Did she have symptoms of UTI?
Are you there?
Ideally, we should get a few tests done like urine analysis, culture and sensitivity, ultrasound of abdomen
blood tests too
ya agree. I am going to the same. However, I need your help for medicine which can help her have sound and peacful sleep
Sorry. Network issue due to heavy rain. Please bare with me.
We have ZENFLOX 5 tablets left. She is mainly having only the pain and white discharge. Not having burning or fever.
But not to many as these may also affect kidney if itis damaged
She should continue the same for now untill you are able to see the doctor
Ok. So combination of Brefen and ZENFLOX. Am I right?
Yes it can cause slowing
But not frequent mood swings
can you please explain "Slowing"?
Slowing mentation means the person takes a little longer while making movements and also during mental activity
It usually happens when low thyroid is not well controlled
she is too active in her activities and movement. However we observe that her mood changes from happy to sorrow and vice versa fequently and especially when there is a white discharge. This mood swing to sorrow results into her anger also.
Then probably she is not doing well
The white discharge can be due to candida
It is due to antobiotic usage
she is not using antibiotics usually. She used to have it in past which she has stopped. She used to take it for minor head aches. This time she started taking ZENFLOX after getting pain and white discharge.
For just pain and white discharge antibiotivcs are not indicated
Antibiotics should be given after documented infection after the tests
clotrimazole intravaginal tablets, is this to control white discharge? Should I take it now along with ZENFLOX?
Try to improve her immunity with hygienic diet and pure drinking water
take lots of fruits and vegetables
Exercise at least 20 min a day is a must
Try to getin contact with a physician tomorrow
Do you have any question here?
So we go with three tablets now?
Correct.... ZENFLOX + Brufeen + clotrimazole intravaginal
Well I do not think antibiotic will work for her
So Brufeen and clotrimazole intravaginal
But since she has already started, she needs to complete the course under doctor's supervision
Ok. Thanks for your guidance for now. It was a great help
brufen and clotrimazole will work
also lifestyle changes are a must
Thanks for consulting
She needs to go to washroom also frequently.
sorry. just new query from her.
I understand that
while passing stool, she is feeling pain
Going to washroom frequently is a sign of infection
but we definitely need to see the germs under the microscope before we start medicine
It can also be a sign of other conditions like diabetes
thus blood tests are also must
for tonight I will use the medicine guided by you. Tomorrow we will try to consult docotr at the earliest.
Ok. Thanks for your help and guidence. It is of great help.
get appropriate tests done
Sure. Will do. Thanks. Bye.
