Hi welcome to Healthcare magic

Macrobid is a higher antibiotic used for urinary tract infection... any antibiotics cannot be taken for long time, it will have harmful effect on the body... you need to get test urine routine... and further the urologist will decide the next step... There are many reasons for burning sensation of urine, hence do not think only UTI is the cause.. you need to be clinically evaluated...

Hello, I am a 60 year old woman, I felt like I had a bladder infection the other day, I do get them quite often. I went too urgent care, the urine test was negative but the doctor put me on Cipro anyway. Should I continue taking it even with a negative test. The medication makes me feel bad....nausea, dizzy. Thank you.

Tuesday PM I passed a lot of blood when I went to pee before bed. The same night, I started experiencing excruciating pain in my upper right arm. Doctors visit yesterday revealed a serious bladder infection. Cipro prescribed. I ve tried tylenol and aleve for the pain I am experiencing in my arm. Nothing has phased it. What can I take for the pain

The doctor s office just told me that I am resistant to Cipro and that is why my bladder infection has not improved. This is the second round of medication that they have given to me. My bladder infection started over a month again. Is there any reason for concern that my body is resistant to Cipro and that I have had a bladder infection for this long

I have symptoms of a UTI, including painful, burning urination, constantly feeling I need to urinate, and I feel generally ill. Now, my pee is not only cloudy, but I'm noticing traces of blood as well as chunks of discharge/blood in my urine. I checked, and this is definitely coming from my urinary tract. Is this just a UTI or something more?
