Brief Answer:
Yes, you can take alprim.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, you can take alprim. No harm in it.
And if URTI symptoms are improved then stop rulid.
Recurrent UTI should be evaluated especially in menopausal women.
So may I ask you few more questions? Only if you permit.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
