Infections

How long until the antibiotic starts to work?

Usually antibioticsĀ take at least 3 days before you begin to feel better.

I have prostatitis. When can I resume work and gym activities?

You should avoid lifting, if possible, for 1 week. Lifting can cause the infection to go down into the testicle and become epididymitis.

Can men take Pyridium and AZO like women?

Yes. Just be aware that these medications stain everything permanently. Because all men dribble urine, this staining may ruin all of your underwear.

When will the fever go away?

Most simple UTI patients do not have fever of more than 101Ā°F. If you have a high fever, please call the office.
