Can I Take Valacyclovir To Treat Urinary Track Infection?
Urinary tract infections are ideally caused by bacterial infections and Valacyclovir being an anti-viral drug will not prove to be effective in this case.
Before I can guide you further, I would like to know a few related details:
- What are your present symptoms?
- Any associated fever with or without chills, bleeding in urine, severe lower abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting etc.?
- Any intake of chronic medications?
Meanwhile, you can continue to drink plenty of water.
Applying hot water bag to the lower abdomen will help to ease the pain.
If you have the above symptoms, I would suggest it best for you to visit the ER for further management. Your doctor may request for a few blood tests along with a urine culture and sensitivity test. He may start you on antibiotics like Nitrofurantoin or Bactrim.
I hope this helps.
