Recurring kidney infection, dizziness, nausea, headache. Prescribed septra ds. Treatment?

Hi have reoccuring kidney infections and am suffering fom one right now. Originally started July 1.Went to walk in clinic and was given 10 days(2x per day) of ciproflozacin. Thought everything was fine but started not feeling well again.Went to the Dr today ans she prescribed 5 days (2x per day) of septra ds which I will pick up after work. Am feeling very dizzy and nauseous and have a headache . I am concerned that this has been going on so long that I may have permanent damage. Also can not understand why this keeps happening.

Hello sir / madam,
You seem to have recurrent urinary tract infection. In that case we need to see if there is any structural abnormality in your urinary tract which is causing recurrent uti .please get a USG abdomen and urine culture and sensitivity done. Also check your blood sugars if they are under control.
You would need regular check up to see if the infection is eradicated or not.
Kindly consult your physician on this issue
Please get back to me for any other queries .
Can continue septran as advised by your physician
