Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What are your symptoms an which antibiotic are you taking?


Customer: replied 3 months ago.
frequently needing to go to the toilet and pressure at end of pinis when needing to go lower dull pain intermittently. I am drinking a lot of water so frequent urination but urine now clear. Antibiotic is Macrobid !00mg BD

Thanks for the details

You should continue with antibiotic and complete the course

You will be fine after completing antibiotic

Sometime it can take 2-3 days before antibiotic takes it full effect

So you can travel on Tuesday and continue to complete the antibiotic course

If you don,t have any fever and burning in urine so you are already recovering well

Please do let me know if you have any other question
