Medicine For UTI

Antibiotics taken orally and antifungal agents are the most commonly prescribed courses of treatment for UTIs. The exact medication that a patient is prescribed is dependent on the type of bacteria that is indentified in a urine test by a doctor. If the bacteria and infection are not very bad and widespread, then a milder form of medication can be taken. For patients that have stronger infections that might already be effecting the kidneys or bloodstream, stronger medications need to be taken for longer periods of time in order to ensure that the infection is completely removed from the body.
