Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this excellent question

In my practice I frequently use ciprofloxacin. E. Coli usually causes UTI and ciprofloxacin is great for it

500 mg twice a day for 3-7 days depending on the situation

In a man, usually 7 days

I hope this helps. If you have more questions just reply. :)
