I was told over 6 months ago that I had a UTI so I was treated with Avelox, Cipro, Batrim DS twice. Since it won't go away I was referred to a Urologist that has put me on PeeVeeK(Penicillin) low dose for 3 months in hopes that it will take care of it. This seems like a long time to be on an antibiotic but I know without it I will continue to have the UTI. I'm currently taking 20mg of Metho weekly which has a major drug interaction with the PeeVeeK but my Rheum. stated it would be okay to take both together. I'm also taking 10mg of Pred. daily.
Is anyone else taking an antibiotic long term, up to 3 months or longer? If so what side effects did occur? I have already been treated for thrush which I have never had before!
Any info would be helpful. Thanks for listening.
