Customer Question
I am on Amoxocillan...

I am on Amoxocillan (spelling!) for a sinus infection. I now have a UTI and was prescribed Microbic by a different Doctor. Can I safely take them together- I would save them out and not take them right together, but at the same course of treatment?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

I get UTI's frequently and have successfully taken macrobid with no problems in the past. I am allergic to Sulfa

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Amoxicillin also should work for UTI.

Hence you may wait till you finish amoxicillin course to start macrobid.

This is to minimize side effects.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
