Can metronidazole or clindamycin treat a urinary tract infection?
I know it has been a while since you posted, but I was wondering how you are doing. Did you ever get the opportunity to see a doctor? I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but UTI's are usually treated with the following:
- Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim, Septra, others)
- Amoxicillin (Amoxil, Augmentin, others)
- Nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrodantin, others)
- Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
- Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
I wouldn't suggest self-medicating with other antibiotics. I think you should see a doctor for treatment. Please consider returning to the community to let us know how things are going. I'm sure your experience could be a great help to others!
Best of luck,
