Hello, I had my first UTI crisis two weeks ago


Q: Hello, I had my first UTI crisis two weeks ago and got prescribed nitrofurantoin 100mg (4xday) for 5 days and all my symptoms were gone. But this week I started to feel UTI symptoms again, but milder. I went to the MD and he prescribed Cipro 500mg twice a day and for 7 days. Now that I have the results of my urine exam, I noticed that the bacteria (E. Coli) counts are 10000 cfu/ml and the antibiogram shows that the bacteria is sensitive to ciprofloxacin. Can I stop the antibiotics now on the third day or should I keep it for seven days?
