What urinary symptoms do you have?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I was not having any symptoms until I started the antiobiotics -- now I just have pressure but no stinging when urinating.

How long have you been taking the antibiotics for?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I was told the lab results on Friday -- started the Antiobiotics that day and then stopped on Sunday because it was messing up my colon; however, I started back today and I have taken one.

With a combination of your urinary symptoms and the mucus that is present in the sample, this most likely indicates a urine infection. If you can tolerate the antibiotics, I would certainly recommend that you continue then. If it is causing some G.I. upset, you need to be sure to take it on a full stomach to minimize these side effects. If your symptoms get worse over the next several days, then you need to call your doctor to get a urine culture results to determine if the antibiotic they put you on is correct. Hope this helps.
