I hope you are taking the anti biotic after a proper culture and sensitivity report of urine.
Take some OTC anti spasmodic for your pain.
Take plenty of water.
Do take some alkaliser like CITRALKA two TSF in one cup of water three times a day.
If you don't get relief in next couple of days,then you should consult a urologist for proper management.

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Though urinary tract infections (UTIs) usually subside withing a few days of starting antibiotics, in certain cases, it may take a longer time to get controlled. The reasons could be:
- due to long-standing infections
- complicated UTIs, like cystitis (bladder infection) or pyelonephritis (kidney infections)
- resistance of the bacteria to the antibiotic

Since you have had a long-standing infection, I would suggest that you wait till the completion of the prescribed course of antibiotic. If your symptoms are persisting, then you need a urine culture and sensitivity, in order to find which antibioticwill be effective against your infection. Sometimes, a stronger antibiotic or a a longer duration of antibiotic therapy may be required. So, please be in regular follow-up with your doctor to plan further treatment strategies.

Wish you all the best.
