Hello,

Only pain medications may not help in bladder infection. If there is an infection, it has to be treated by antibiotics. If your wife is suffering from bladder infection, she should take Levofloxacin 250 mg (Levoflox) twice a day for five days.

She should drink lots of fluids. Infection is eliminated faster from body if the urine output is more. She should take rest as much as she can. Pain medications can be taken for symptomatic relief from pain.

If the pain does not resolve in three days, then she should go for urine analysis, culture test of urine and complete blood count (CBC).

I hope this information helps. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic.

Regards,
Dr. Viraj Shah
