What is the oral alternative of amikacin injection?

good day doctor,
I am 29 yr old female.I am suffering from a UTI which is a reoccurence after5 months. the symptoms are frequent urge to urinate, pain while urinating,little vomiting sensation.Four months ago i got a urine culture & a vaginal swab test done.while the urine culture didn't show any bacterial infection swab test did come up with E-Coli infection. was adivsed by the consulting doctor to take Amikacin for 5 days but due to certain conditions i was unable to take it.
at present i am on board a ship in vietnam as my husband is marine engineer.so i am unable to take amikacin at this moment as well as it comes only in the form of injection. Plz advise alternate medication which can be taken orally.plz advise more than one trade name .Also plz advise if URISPAS will be helpful or not?
Thank you.

Hello
I hope you are not pregnant now. After observing your test reports , I suspect you were suffering with uncomplicated Urinary tract infections .
if you are my patient I would advice you to take Macrobid 100mg twice daily for 7days
Macrodantin100mg 4times foe 7days
Furadantin 100mg 4times for 7days.

Also use urispas tablet for 7days twice daily.it will relieve the spasmic pain during voiding.
I hope you are satisfied with my clarification.
Wish you good health. Rate my answer.
