Urinary tract infection treatment

As said earlier, antibiotics are the primary treatment for urinary tract infections. The type of bacteria determines the treatments and medicines that need to be prescribed by the doctor.

If you have a simple infection then the treatment includes medicines like Ceftriaxone, Trimethoprim, Nitrofurantoin etc. After taking the medication, the symptoms of the infection go away within few days. Pain medications are also given for the burning sensation during urinating.

If you have frequent infections then the doctor elongates the medication for months. Low doses of antibiotics are prescribed to continue for half a year. If you have postmenopausal then vaginal therapy is advised.

Apart from the clinical treatments, you need to make some changes to your lifestyle. You should drink a lot of water, avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder while urinating and use heating pads.

It is found that cranberry juice has the quality of fighting against infections. Thus patients are often advised to have cranberry products. However, if you are diabetic then you should avoid drinking huge calories of cranberry products.
