Currently, urinary infections are the most frequent reasons for the visits to an urologist. Some of the infections are sexually transmitted, while others are caused by different reasons and can be diagnosed at any age. Bacterial infection of urinary system causes significant discomfort – pain, burning sensation, frequent urge to urination. Left untreated, they can turn into a chronic form. The best option for treatment is taking antibiotics that will treat the pathology fast and prevent complications.
Urinary infections can be classified according several types of inflammatory processes in urinary system including kidney and ureters (upper part of the system) and bladder with urethra (lower part of the system)
In most cases the infection has bacterial cause. The most frequent pathogen is a pathogenic bacteria – Escherichia coli, with 95% of patients tested positive.
Contemporary antibacterial medicine can be divided into several groups with particular bactericide or bacteriostatic effects. Amoxicillin is a very affective medicine for urinary infection. It is antibiotic that fights infection by reducing bacterial capacity for reproduction. In most cases, doctors prescribe Amoxil for minor urinary infections.
When doctors say that a patient has a minor infection, they mean that patient is generally healthy and infection doesn’t cause severe symptoms and damage other organs. Therefore, Amoxicillin can treat minor and moderate urinary infections.
To guarantee positive effect from Amoxil, it’s important to take antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor according to the schedule for the prescribed number of days.
Unfortunately, patients stop taking medicine as soon as their symptoms disappear. But it is a false sign. If you stop taking medicine too early, there is a high probability that bacteria will grow again and the condition can get worse because bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics. For urinary infections Amoxil is usually prescribed in the form of pills or capsules. It can be taken with or without food because it doesn’t affect the result.
