Thanks for your question
Since how long this has been going on?
I felt very ill all weekend, went to e.r on monday where they discovered kidney infection. I was given augmentin 500mg, have taken six of the fifteen so far. Just wondering would it clear up without antibiotics as i felt a little better before going to e.r?
Do you still have symptoms?
Yes but not as bad as weekend.
ok thats good
Kidney infections can go away without antibiotics but there is always a risk of getting them again and getting complications from the infection
I will never suggest you to leave your antibiotics
actually augmentin is not a very good choice for kidney infection
Moreover i suggest that you should consider taking craneberry juice
its very good for such infections
I am taking cranberry juice, if there is not more improvement in next day or two should i go back for different antibiotic?
Also is a racing heart a symptom of the infection?
If there is no improvement then go to your local doctor to get your urine culture done and for that you may have to stop antibiotics
this will help in getting targeted antibiotic
Racing heart can be due to fever associated with infection
Ok thank you very much.
i wish you good luck that you get well soon
