Hello and thanks for the query.
The treatment seems to right although I would want to add few things.
If the UTI returns,make sure to get the urine culture done and then take the antibiotics according to the report.
Must take the antibiotic for at least 2 weeks instead of 5 days.
Start taking plenty of water.

As far as calcirol powder for VIT D is concerned,it would be better if you take the sachets every week for 8 weeks followed by once in a fortnight for 3 months followed by once a month regularly.
Must take some calcium along with CACIROL powder.
Do take some sun exposure for 30 to 40 minutes a day in morning between 8 and 10 am.
I hope I am clear however you can revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

I hope there is nothing serious and will get ok soon from this problem.

My GP also suggested that this time it would be 10 days treatment.

any other suggestions like i have started cital also from today.

There is absolutely nothing serious.
It is only a question of managing your problems well.
You may take CITAL for 10 to 14 days.
Take plenty of water.
