Thread: Weirdest UTI yet, which antibiotic?

  1. #1

    Weirdest UTI yet, which antibiotic?

    Here's my test results, I've had it for 2mths, took Macrobid, seemed good, cleared up. Stopped Macrobid, next day instantly knew horrible fish smell and milky urine. Never has a uti smelled this gross fishy smell ever! Took another sample in and this time it's not sensitive to Macrobid. In your experience what is the best antibiotic for this weird uti w/Beta-lacamase"


    I have never taken any of these antibiotics listed before for a uti. it's a weird one?

    Any thoughts? Please & Thanks.....

    Dr. phoned, but I missed call, now not open till Monday.

    Hey Monkeygirl, long time no see on here. My suggestion would be to get on one of the meds listed with the S asap, nothing to fool around with, you don't want to end up in the hospital. Bring this list either to the ER or a Urgent care center ASAP and have them get you a Script and stay on it for the recommended time, generally 10 to 14 for us SCI's. Ya, that does sound like a weird one, normally Sulfa drugs work or Nitrofurantoin sounds like thats not the case with this bacteria that grew in your bladder. Especially as we get older it's important to get faster treatment as you could have Sepsis set in and that can be bad.

    How long of a course of each antibiotic has your doctor prescribed. Complex urinary tract infections should be treated for 12-14 days with an antibiotic to which the bacteria is sensitive. About two days later you should have another Urinalysis (UA) and a Culture & Sensitivity (C&S) before another antibiotic is prescribed.

    Have you considered taking d mannose as an adjunct to the antibiotics?

    A quick internet search shows that three of the antibiotics indicated with an "S" for sensitive meaning that the bacteria is sensitive to the antibiotic are IV/injection medications. Only one is an oral antibiotic.

    All the best,

    Fosfomycin is an old, old antibiotic, but it can work very well for UTIs.

    That's the one, if you want to stay out of the hospital!

    You are colonized with an ESBL.Are you feverish? Don't take fosfo just for smelly urine,foso can become resistant too.In the US fosfo isn't covered and it's $75 dollars a dose.

    I'n not ferverish 37.8, not just smelly urine, the worst different smell ever. It looks like milk with chunks in it, hasn't been clear in a mth. the culture said:

    ESCHERICHIA COLI OVER 100 M CFU/L.

    I took the Monurol yesterday, it cost $20.13 here. Man you guys get ripped off, that's just ridiculous $55 more, should be illegal!

    We'll see what happens, sure made me feel like shit though.
