Patient :So I recently just went to the doctor for a uti infection, I'm taking the medication for 5 days twice a day, and I'm on my fourth day, but it feels like it hasn't gone away. The irrational feeling.
Thanks for the query.
It will need some more time for the medication to act completely. Kindly wait for a couple of more days for a symptomatic relief. Also, drink plenty of water daily and have a nutritious diet. Stress must be reduced. Also, make sure you follow good sanitary hygiene and preferably avoid unprotected intercourse till you are completely cured of the symptoms. Do a urine culture after a week to know your status and in case of no improvement, a repeat dose of antibiotics, or a higher antibiotic may be needed.
Hope this helped.
