Had a urine test last week, thought I had an uti. The test was negative. Today, a week later still burning, had another test, it was negative. They gave me diflucan script. Should the urine have been sent off to be checked? I also received a presc. For amoxicillin for upper respiratory infection. Would the Amox, diflucan take care of it if it is a bacterial infection? Help!

I've had several uti's, usually treated with bactrim. One uti wouldn't go away until it was treated with macrobid. You could have a kidney stone, I've had those & it can feel like a uti with neg. urine test.

After a day or two on Amox., if not better go to Bellefonte to be checked.

I had a urologist friend tell me once that over-the-counter AZO-Standard was very good for UTIs but he wouldn't tell patients that because he would be out of business

Knows is right, The AZO works very well with the burning, worth a few dollars.

You shouldn't take other antibiotics with diflucan. Diflucan is usually given for yeast infections which other antibiotics can cause.

Amoxicillin can be given for UTI's but it isnt common. It is normally Cipro, Bactrim or Macrobid. It sounds like you do not have a UTI if you have tested negative twice. You may need to see a urologist because you could be having spasms and they are very uncomfortable :( Any antibiotic can cause a yeast infection and that is what Diflucan is for. It clears that up. Why dont you try getting some over the counter AZO pills. They are not antibiotics but it sounds like you dont need one. The AZO pills will make you pee orange and numb the entire urinary system and you wont have that burning feeling when you pee. They really do help. If this keeps on, I would ask to be referred to a specialist. You may also want to have a check up with your OB doctor if you havent done so recently. Hope this helps :)
