Suggest remedy for urinary problem

a week a go i felt the need to pass urine frequently even though there was no urine to pass, the situation improved and i forgot about it. Today morning am feeling the same, infact i get this feeling of being pressed so pressed with urine, i feel uncomfortable passing urine and i have just noticed some blood drops after passing the urine. Would you please advise why this is the case and what causes it? I started taking a number of medication last night for sinuses and cough including - Acetylcystein 600 tablets,fexofenadine tablets,xylometazoline nosal spray and beclometasone dipropionate nosal spray, could i be reacting to this medication? please advise on what i should do

Hello,

Antibiotics usually are the first line treatment for urinary tract infections. Which drugs are prescribed and for how long depend on your health condition and the type of bacteria found in your urine.

Simple infection
Drugs commonly recommended for simple UTIs include:
- Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra, others)
- Fosfomycin (Monurol)
- Nitrofurantoin (Macrodantin, Macrobid)
- Cephalexin (Keflex)
- Ceftriaxone
- The group of antibiotic medicines known as fluoroquinolones — such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin) and others — isn't commonly recommended for simple UTIs, as the risks of these medicines generally outweigh the benefits for treating uncomplicated UTIs. In some cases, such as a complicated UTI or kidney infection, your doctor might prescribe a fluoroquinolone medicine if no other treatment options exist.

Often, symptoms clear up within a few days of treatment. But you may need to continue antibiotics for a week or more. Take the entire course of antibiotics as prescribed.

For an uncomplicated UTI that occurs when you're otherwise healthy, your doctor may recommend a shorter course of treatment, such as taking an antibiotic for one to three days. But whether this short course of treatment is enough to treat your infection depends on your particular symptoms and medical history.

Your doctor may also prescribe a pain medication (analgesic) that numbs your bladder and urethra to relieve burning while urinating, but the pain usually is relieved soon after starting an antibiotic.

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

Regards,
Dr. Abhishek Kumar
