Thanks for the query.
Any antibiotic must be taken for the duration that it has been prescribed. If you stop it earlier there might be a risk of relapse or resistant infection.
If the back pain is persistent it's better to see the physician to determine if its related to the infection or is something new.
Hope this helps
Good luck.

Thanks for posting your query.
Presence of urinary tract infection with low backache may be due to some sort of obstruction in urinary tract system.
You should consult wit internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon/ urologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging/ x ray KUB region, urine routine microscopy and urine culture & sensitivity test.
You should first go for above prescribed investigation and continue antibiotics as prescribed by your treating doctor.
You should also take urine alkalizer for eradicating urine infection.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
