Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

I appreciate your concern

I would like to know the actual symptoms that you are experiencing,please answer the following questions for me so that I can guide you accordingly.

Do you go to the washroom more frequently?
Do you feel pain or burning sensation while urinating?
Do you feel pain in your lower abdomen and flanks?
Do you have a fever?
Are you nauseated?

The medication that you are asking about could be an antibiotic like ciprofloaxcin if you previously had bladder infection as these are usually prescribed in urinary tract infections.

Please let me know if you have any query

Thank you and wish you the best of health.

I am urinating quite frequently and feel pressure consistently in my abdomen and my urine smells terrible.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

It's likely to be cystitis. Empirical treatment with fosfomycin as a single 3 g dose or ciprofloxacin for 5 to 7 days would suffice.

Im sorry, We are not allowed to prescribe medicine on this forum.
