This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
why do you think you have a UTI?
how old are you?
you could have a bladder stone irritating your bladder
alcohol, caffeine, not drinking enough water can cause bladder irritation.
overactive bladder syndrome can cause UTI symptoms
you have to see a doctor and get a urinalysis and urine culture to check your urine for infection.
to know what antibiotic you should use, you need a urine culture which grows out the bacteria in your urine and then can bet tested against a panel of antibiotics. this is called a sensitivity and resistance panel.
some bacterial infections can be resistant to certain antibiotics.
only a urine culture can tell what antibiotics you need to fight a certain infection.
