Any suggestion for recurring bladder/respiratory/ear infection, sinus and bronchial?

Just got off the phone with my Dr. for prescription I had before for the same related symptoms. I have been prescribed Sulfameth/Trimethoprim 800mg twice a day for a bladder infection also having an upper respiratory infection at the time. It was effective. My Dr. said Cephalexin also treated these symptoms, depending on cost since I don't have insurance. I feel as I am having recurring bladder symptoms but have also have been have upper respiratory and ear infection. This time my sinus and bronchial and ear issues are more bothersome than my bladder. Which medication is stronger or better for my main concern. I am also worried about side effects with new drug as I had none with first. Reading that depression, anxiety and yeast infections can be a side effects as I am prone to these things. What are your suggestions?

Hi sir, having a upper respiratory tract infections are very common now a days. Treatment aspecg is also correct.
Reason why u are having it recurring is what we have to think.
Avoid air conditioner, cold foods, oily foods, stress, eating junk foods.
Take multivitamins for at least 3 months to improve immunity.
Still recurs, get blood investigation and CT scan doneto know what has happened.
Start with good antibiotics, recurrence rate is less.
U can also think of immotile cilia syndrome, but these the doctors has to evaluate.
So follow doctors advise correctly and then decide.
I find this answer helpful
