Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Burining sensation while passing urine with chills
or fever is indicative of a urinary tract infection
. Urinary infections have to be treated with a course of antibiotics. Levofloxacin
and Malirid are antibiotics often used for the treatment of urinary infections
Most urinary infections are caused by bacteria, but can be caused by other organisms like fungi also. The severity and nature of the infection can be known only with the help of urine tests. Since you have mentioned that your father's symptoms are persistent for a month, it is likely that it may be a resistant organism. A urine culture and sensitivity test will reveal what organism it is and which antibiotics will be effective against it.
Common side effects of Levofloxacin are nausea
. headache, light-headedness, sleep disturbances, etc. If your father is experiencing any prominent side effects, he should reprt them to the doctor.
Wish you all the best.
