Urinary Tract Infection Treatment
Currently, urinary infections are the most frequent reasons for visits to an urologist. Some infections are sexually transmitted, whereas others are caused by different reasons and can be diagnosed at any age. Bacterial infections of the urinary system cause significant discomfort such as pain, burning sensation, and/or frequent urge to urination. When left untreated, urinary tract infection can turn into a chronic condition. The best option for treatment of a urinary tract infection is to take antibiotics, which can treat the infection and prevent further complications.
Urinary tract infections can be classified according to several types of inflammatory processes in the urinary system, which includes the kidney and ureters (upper part of the system) and bladder with urethra (lower part of the system).
In most cases, a urinary tract infection is caused by bacterial origins. The most frequent pathogen is a pathogenic bacteria related to Escherichia coli to which 95% of patients test positive.
Contemporary antibacterial medicine can be divided into several groups demonstrating particular bactericide or bacteriostatic effects. Amoxicillin is a highly effective medicine for treating urinary tract infections. The antibiotic properties of this medication fight infection by reducing bacterial capacity for reproduction. In most cases, doctors prescribe Amoxil for minor urinary tract infections.
When doctors suggest that a patient has a minor infection, they mean that a patient is generally healthy and the infection should not cause severe symptoms and damage to other organs. Therefore, Amoxil can be used to treat minor and moderate urinary tract infections.
To guarantee positive effects from using Amoxil, it is important to take this medication directly as prescribed by your doctor according to the schedule for the prescribed number of days.
Unfortunately, some patients stop taking Amoxil as soon as their symptoms begin to disappear. However, this represents a false sign that the infection is gone. If Amoxil treatment is stopped prematurely, there is a high probability that bacteria will grow once more and the condition can worsen because bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics. For urinary tract infections, Amoxil is usually prescribed in the form of pills or capsules. This medication can be taken with or without food because this factor does not affect the therapeutic action.
