General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

In my daily practice, I give the antibiotic to treat the urinary tract infections for 7 to 14 days depending on the severity of the infection.

So, after fourteen days of treatment, I suggest consulting again your doctor for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
