Thread: When is it ER time for UTI?

    Ya, that’s why I chimed in for the nurses. It’s already resistant and far beyond my knowledge. But I do know I would prefer a longer script, so hopefully they can let me know if that’s a good idea

    I was replying to Patrick's comment. Taking keflex prophylactically seems overkill. Sorry about the mix up. I have edited my post to reflect that I was replying to Patrick.

    In your case it's different. Your doctor selected keflex probably because the bug is most sensitive to it. If it was as sensitive to nitrofurantoin then he'd probably have selected it.

    I have always had a urologist and he just retired this past month. The greatest doctor ever. And I mean it. Now my question is. Can I use my primary doctor, and is that prudent?

    For new thread question- your Pcp should be able to order a urinalysis and culture and order appropriate antibiotics. Urologists are surgeons... most don’t want to handle uti’s only. Unless recurrent or complex. CWO
