Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your father's symptoms and his current medications.

For treating urinary tract infection, a dose of ceftum (cefuroxime) 500 mg once daily (OD) for 10 days is sufficient.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
