Brief answer...need a proper antibiotic course after urine culture. Detailed answer.. Hello, Thanks for the query. Very sorry to learn about the turn of events with your father. His history suggests that he is suffering from severe urinary tract infection ( UTI ). Ideal way of treatment is to get the urine culture and sensivity done and then give the appropriate antibiotic course for 10-14 days. He must increase his water intake and start taking some alkaliser like ALKACITRON OR CITRALKA in dose of 2tsf mixed with one cup of water,three times a day. This would help in flushing out the infection. I hope he improves with this treatment but if he doesn't improve,then it would be worthwhile to consult a urologist for evaluation and management. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks

Hello, Kidneys get harmed if urinary infection is not treated and infection travels backwards to result in infection of kidney. A prompt treatment of urinary tract infection is the important part of treatment. URIMAX-D is given to improve the urinary symptoms in patients suffering from benign prostate enlargement. URIMAX-D is a combination of TAMSULOSIN and DUTASTERIDE. Tamsulosin helps in relaxing muscles of prostate gland while dutasteride helps in shrinking the prostate gland.Combination of these two medicines work much better than giving them alone. Although the action of urimax-d starts in 3-5 days but the complete and proper effect takes about 3-4 weeks to achieve. Normally such borderline prostate enlargement doesn't require surgery and symtoms can be managed by medications and lifestyle changes like avoiding drinking fluids for 3 hours prior to going to bed. Thanks

Hello, As I told you earlier URIMAX D takes about 3-4 weeks for complete effect although effect starts in 3-5 days. Antibioics are to be given after getting the urine culture done. URIMAX D helps in alleviating the symptoms of prostate enlargement and doesn't treat infection. Combination of URIMAX D and proper antibiotics shall help soon. Thanks
