Hi,thanks for query.Infection in bladder needs proper and long treatment.I hope you have gone for urine test .Please also go for ultrasound to have look for the cause.Some times some impacted stone can lead to persistence of infection.Please also ask your doctor about urine culture and sensitivity test.This helps in identifying the causative organism and medicine that is effective against it.Please take medicines as advised.You can take help from a urologist in this case.bye.

hi
welcome to healthcare magic
your suffering from honeymoon cystitis.women who is sexually active are more prone to get urinary tract infection.its better you avoid intercourse till your infection subsides.
drink plenty of water and avoid holding urge for urination.
maintain hygiene.
urinate before and after intercourse.
antibiotics will help you out from infection.but if your having recurrent urinary infection than i suggest to consult homeopath will permanently cure your condition.
i hope my answer will be useful to you

Now they put me on MACROBID 100 MG and instructed take @ times a day with food. I took first pill about 3 hours ago within an hour i started having body aches lungs felt tight when i breathed in deep it burnt and i would cough like i had run really fast in a really cold windchill. About half an hour after body aches then sharp pains in back right side below rib cage. Now wanna be sure not reaction to this antibiotic, as i have never been on this one. Im wanting to take another dose as my urine is killing me burning. My only option is emergancy I have no ride and have my son. So wondering if this is common am I safe to take another dose??
