I would advise that you go ahead and take the cefuroxime that you have and then follow up with your doctor on completion...
If you fail to completely treat this with the cefuroxime then you can always switch to another antibitoc such as Cipro for example...
The Cefuroxime should have good gram negative coverage which would include the most common bacteria that may be a cause....
dr u think cefuroxime used to this kind of treatment, because I see that most use amocilina or ciproflaxano
dr how long should I use it prescribed 12 days, what do you think
Yes I think that the Cefuroxime is fine to trat this... as I said IF it does not treat this completely then I would opt to switch later to Cipro later....
12 days or more
12 days would be adequate coverage for epididymitis BUT the potential problem is that OFTEN you may be dealing with a prostate infection as well.. if prostate is infected then I would treat this for 30 days and even then recommend follow up check!!
The main thing that I would recommend would be that you do follow up after you complete treatment!!
You are very welcome!
