Top 3 Urinary Tract Infection Treatments

 
Cipro  

A urinary tract infection is any infection that occurs in your urinary system, including bladder and kidney infections. Urinary tract infections may be caused by a range of bacteria. They are more common in women, although they are often more serious in men. Symptoms often include pain or burning during urination; frequently feeling the need to urinate, although little comes out; feeling of fullness in the bladder; and pain in one side of the lower back under the ribs.

If you suspect a urinary tract infection, it is important to see your doctor right away. The most common treatment is a three day course of antibiotics, although a more serious infection may require a longer treatment or even brief hospitalization.

Cipro (http://www.cipro.com/) is a commonly prescribed antibiotic for urinary tract infections. The medication is a powerful antibiotic, but is not right for everyone. It can interact with certain prescription and over the counter medications as well as some foods. Review your full list of medications with your doctor before beginning treatment, and pay close attention to your doctor’s instructions in regards to properly timing your medications.

Cipro can cause a range of side effects. Dizziness is relatively common, so avoid driving until you know how your body reacts to the medication. Some side effects may be serious, so tell your doctor right away if you experience any unusual symptoms.

Cipro is not recommended for those with certain underlying medical conditions. Only your doctor can help you decide if it is best for you.

 
Levaquin  

Urinary tract infections can occur anywhere in your urinary system, including the bladder and kidneys. Symptoms often include, but are not limited to, a frequent urge to urinate although little comes out; pain in one side of the lower back, under the ribs; burning during urination; and a feeling of fullness in the bladder. Urinary tract infections are more common in women, but are sometimes more serious in men.

Septra  

A urinary tract infection can occur in any part of your urinary system. Bladder infections are the most common, although kidney infections also fall into this category. Symptoms of a urinary tract infection often include frequently needing to urinate, although little urine comes out; pain or burning during urination; and pain in one side of the lower back, under the ribs. Women are significantly more likely to develop urinary tract infections than men, although men’s infections are frequently more serious.

Septra can cause a range of side effects, some of which may be serious. Be sure to tell your doctor right away if you experience any unusual symptoms. Like most antibiotics, Septra can cause oral or vaginal fungal infections if used for a long time. Septra can increase your sun sensitivity, so avoid tanning salons and use adequate sun protection.

Septra is not recommended for those with certain underlying medical conditions and can interact with a range of prescription and over the counter medications. Your doctor will review your medical history and list of current medications before deciding whether Septra is right for you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before adding any new medications while taking Septra.
