Customer Question

I took my daughter to urgent care today and they said her urine looked bad and she had a UTI and they were sending it out for more testing.,they gave me augmentin as a prescription and we came home. She ate took the medication and some Tylenol and an hour later threw up so we tried again and she threw up again. I am concerned she's not getting the medication in her system to help her heal and her fever is now 100.5 what should I do? Do I take her to the hospital?

How old is she?

How much did she vomit?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
She is 16 the first time she threw up a lot 2 times and the second time wasn't a lot.

Thank you for all the information,
UTI can cause vomiting.
As she is not able to retain antibiotic, it will not be effective.
In this early stage, injectable form can work better.
I would suggest to take her again to doctor.
They can give a shot.
Antiemetics can be prescribed too.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Should I take her tonight is it a emergency or in the morning will be okay. My other daughter had an infection that almost became toxic and I worry about it now.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.

Antibiotic can take sometime to act.

The sooner it gets into the system is better.

I feel you can take her in tonight.
