Suspected of UTI and prescribed with norflox. Sensitive to Amikacin, Ertapenem. Suggest the medication?
Question: Which medicine should she switch to?
You better switch to Nitrofurantoin.
Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX
results,the organisms are sensitive to Nitrofurantoin. So, it is better to go with this drug as Zanocin(Ofloxacin) is not mentioned in the sensitivity list.
I would also advise to drink plenty of liquids. I also add Citralka syrup to my patients which is taken in diluted form.
If the infection is severe, she can be given Amikacin also. But, it is available in injection form only and needs to be taken under medical supervision. I prescribe two antibiotics to my patients with similar complaints if the infection is severe.
Hope I answered your question.
If you have any doubts, I will clarify further.
Wish her good health and speedy recovery after her planned surgery.
Raciper is stomach protective.
She does not need a separate antacid as she is on Raciper(Esmoprazole).
No other medicine is needed as the drug Nitrofurantoin will be effective for UTI.
Hope i answered your query.
