I started taking this anti-biotic two days ago because I supposedly have a UTI even though my urine has tested clean twice... I'm guessing it was my doctors idea to get rid of me. I was vomiting and had stomach pains before I started taking this but now I can't even keep water down. Now I'm reching for hours, my stomach hurts like hell, I feel tired, feverish... And I'm either so hot I'm sweating or freezing to death. I ache everywhere and my head feels like its going to explode. Is this an allergic reaction? Should I call the nurse help line or go to the hospital? Answered by Sol Wittman 5 months ago.
Go to the hospital. The UTI could have been mistaken for a kidney infection. An allergic reaction would manifest itself as a rash rather than the symptoms you are describing. Get help, quick. Answered by Charita Cagey 5 months ago.

Asked by Loyd Picart 5 months ago.
Treatment If your symptoms are typical of a UTI and you're generally in good health, antibiotics are the first line of treatment. Which drugs are prescribed and for how long depends on your health condition and the type of bacteria found in your urine. Drugs most commonly recommended for simple UTIs include amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox), nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrodantin), trimethoprim (Proloprim) and the antibiotic combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra). Make sure your doctor is aware of any other medications you're taking or any allergies you have. This will help him or her select the best treatment. Usually, UTI 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 recommended by your doctor to ensure that the infection is completely eradicated. 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 three days. But whether this short course of treatment is adequate to treat your UTI depends on your particular symptoms and medical history. If you have recurrent UTIs, your doctor may recommend a longer course of antibiotic treatment or a self-treatment program with short courses of antibiotics at the outset of your urinary symptoms. For infections related to sexual activity, your doctor may recommend taking a single dose of antibiotic after sexual intercourse. For severe UTIs, hospitalization and treatment with intravenous antibiotics may be necessary. When recurrences are frequent or a kidney infection becomes chronic, your doctor will likely refer you to a doctor who specializes in urinary disorders (urologist) or a doctor whose specialty is kidneys (nephrologist) for an evaluation to determine if urologic abnormalities may be causing the infections.

Drink three 8 ounce glasses of cranberry juice a day for your UTI. Lasix is not an antibiotic. In fact the diuretic may induce a urinary tract infection in a few folks. Answered by Jae Rannells 5 months ago.
Lasix is not an antibiotic, its a diruetic also called a water pill. A UTI is an infection and can only be cured by taking antibiotics such as Bactrim, Cipro, Levaquin, or Rocephin. Answered by Doreatha Medcalf 5 months ago.
lasix (furoemide) is a diuretic (a water pill), it is not used for UTI's. As stated earlier if you having difficulty urinating (going pee) the lasix is going draw water out of your body to make you have to pee. Juices high in acid content are good to drink especially cranberry juice( not cranberry drink the actual juice). This increases the acid content of the pee and help kill the bacteria. Also drink water it helps flush the bacteria out. An antibiotic usual prescribed by you doctor. Always check with doctor before taking any other medication. there are many way to help prevent UTI, drink plenty of fluids, especially water; urinate promptly when the urge arises; wipe from front to back; empty your bladder as soon as possible after intercourse and avoid potentially irritating feminine products. I hope this helps! R.N. Answered by Armandina Okken 5 months ago.
they have certain medication for UTI. i had one and the doctor prescribed me a "special medication" that helps UTI specifically. you can take Lasix and see if it helps because it's not like it will hurt you too take it, just give you diarrhea. a good idea, though, would be to visit the doctor so he can prescribe medication- that will get rid of the pain faster and more efficiently.

trimethoprim is the generic name or chemical name.. you should try to research by the brand names it might be easier to find stuff out, what kind of information do you need? the brand names include Proloprim, Monotrim and Triprim. I'd start with Wikipedia and use their sources to find more info. hope that helps. I work in a pharmacy, so I know it's easier to look up info on the brand.

I take the following medications: Ranitidine Gemfibrozil Metformin Benicar If you know the proper time of day to take these medications, I would love to hear it. If you know of a website that gives this information in a easy to understand fashion, I would also appreciate that as well. I am also looking for a website which allows me to enter all my medications and which tells me which should not be taken together because of their side-effects. Thank you for you help.

When you get your meds from the pharmacy they tell you when to take them. The info would be on the education page. These meds are not just AM or PM meds, they are also with or without food. Of course as usual, you could be off most of these meds if you would just watch your diet and exercise. You know I have to add that last little ditty. Love ya, Steph Answered by Tracey Damours 5 months ago.
How often do you take them? Metformin you should take before meals. Gemfribrozil 30 minutes before meals Benicar can be taken whenever, with or without food Ranitidine has many different types -s o it depends Answered by Chasity Wescott 5 months ago.
Metformin should be taken prior to meals as it is a diabetic medication. Ranitidine is Zantac which is for your stomach. You may take that AM and before bed if that is the way it is prescribed. Answered by Edie Schultze 5 months ago.
You Doctor and Pharmacist should both of advised you when to take your meds, and if they haven't should be reported. I think it is completely irresponsible of them. The doctor should also have told you if one interferes with the other. I would certainly be on the phone to either of them and not try to learn about it here. Answered by Caryn Pellecchia 5 months ago.
are you me? I asked the same thing but I take about 22 different meds and was gonna go to the pharmacist and dump them out and ask him, but thats too much to do, so I just sit at home and get calls and letters from all these med companies that want me to be studied by them do to taking all their meds. good luck!
