Hi

The correct antibiotic is used to treat a urinary track infection.

Is that your question?

Cipro and bactrim are most often used, but there is resistance growing to these drugs.

So, a urinalysis and culture with bacterial sensitivity is the best way to decide on an antibiotic.

Third generation cephalosporins do not have such resistance at this point.
