Suggest treatment for pain during urination

default
Posted on Tue, 12 May 2015
Question: I was prescribed Nitrofurantoin Mono/Mac 100mg caps 1 every 12 hours for a UTI. After 5 doses, I still had the extreme pain during urination and started a low grade fever. I was then switched to Ciprofloxacin 500mg Tablets 1 every 12 hours X 6 tabs. I have 2 tabs left, but my pain during urination has not subsided. Fever is gone though. I'm very worried this is not going to heal before May 1st, I have a Colonoscopy scheduled. What should I do?
