    Antibiotic Question for HealthCare Professionals

    Hi Everyone,

    I have posted here before and have really appreciated the feedback I have received. That said, I do have question(s) about antiobiotic use for urinary tract infection.

    Now I want to start by saying that I don't want to publicly flog my urologist or gp for their recommendations but I just need some clarification.

    He has recommended that I take (when it is sensitive to it) Cirpo XL 1000mg (1 daily for 3 days) for treatment. I did this recently and when I followed up with my GP she said that I should have been on a longer course. She was thinking 500mg Cipro (twice daily) for ten days.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Usually Cipro 500 twice a day for 7-10 days.
