I have a UTI and have been taking nitro-macr antibiotics

This answer was rated:

I have a UTI and have been taking nitro-macr antibiotics twice a day and 100 mg per dosage. My purse was stolen and with it my antibiotics. I will not be able to get my new prescription until tomorrow at noon which means I will have missed two dosages. Should I not take anything for my UTI or should I take an amoxicillin in the interim? I have a prescription for amoxicillin that is 500 mg per dose.

Hello! I will assist you today. I'm sorry to hear that your purse was stolen.

Missing two doses is significant but should not be a problem since you will be starting a new dose tomorrow.
