Brief Answer: Recheck values Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query S creat normal values are 1.2 mg/dl. It is not possible to have a creatinine of 440. Could you please re check the values and get back to me. Could also type the urine report. Alprim is a good tablet for UTI. The creatine value will not rise after stopping the tablet if the UTI is completely and adequately treated. To know if the UTI is treated I advice you to repeat the urine routine. If the pus cells are still present in urine then Alprim needs to be continued I hope I was of help I wish you good health and a speedy recovery Regards
