Brief Answer:
Change of antibiotic is needed

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Yes, better visit the ER.

Presence of pain even when on hydrocodone, feeling weak can be signs of ongoing active infection. This implies that the antibiotic you are on is not helping. It needs to be changed.

I suggest you to visit the ER and get the antibiotics changed. If it is bladder or prostate infection then antibiotics of Cephlosporin group would work better.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
