Customer Question

I just got over a severe stomac flu, now feel like I'm getting a UTI...from what I am reading, it would appear that can happen. My DR had given me a prescription to have on hand because I had problems this summer with multiple UTI ....I also have a pain just above the middle of my left leg in my abdomen feels deep inside, most likely a muscle pull as I was so so sick. I am going to start my nitrofurantion as a proventive. WAs just looking for validation I guess. Thanks
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: no allergies...sinvestation ( sp) and linisaprol...Don't feel like jumping from the frying pan into the fire so I think I'll give this a shot, have not had antibiotics for a long time. THis one shot at prevention,even if I'm wrong will probably not hurt me
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no
