My daughter has had temps of 102-103 for 3 days now. She was started on cipro yesterday 250 mg po bid and has had 3 doses so far. Temp still spikes to 102, no appetite, lost 3 lbs, and very fatigue. Diagnosis was UTI from clinic NP . Positive urinalysis for infection, high ketones, protein, blood, bilirubin, and leukocytes. Should she go to ER for second opinion? She is an adult.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your daughter has acute Urinary Tract Infection.

Please get her urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and the antibiotics to which they are sensitive to,Report of this test will be available within 72 hours.

Please continue with Cipro that you are giving her along with Tab Paracetamol to control the fever in addition to urinary antiseptics like Nitrofurantoin twice daily.
Ensure to give her more water to keep the urine dilute and to keep her well hydrated.

Once you get the culture report switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

She should recover and be fine within 3-4 days.
