Hello,

As E. coli found in your urine culture and I think Amikacin drug may be started after sensitivity report. So that is your drug of choice as per report. If you have problems with that, then I will suggest you to consult with urologist with report.

He will start appropriate antibiotic as per the sensitivity report. As a physician I would start tablet Oflox Oz, syrup Neeri, and tablet Dolo.

But it is always better to start after sensitivity report. So, I will suggest you to review here with detailed history or consult with the urologist and regular follow up.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale
