Getting worse now

Thank you for the input.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.

I understand your concern.

Antibiotic can take some time to act.

It can take 2-3 days too to have its full effect.

When you are taking it for 3 days, I feel you need a review by doctor.

The antibiotic may not be working or there can be a complication.

Repeat tests like urine culture would be needed.

An ultrasound, blood work can be taken.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Would you be able prescribe any other antibiotic in the meantime

I am sorry.

Online prescription is not legal without examining a patient in person.

It is not ethical too.

At the same time, urine culture would find out the most effective antibiotic.
