    so i have a bladder infection and was in agony on wednesday so went to the doctor and they sent my urine sample off to get tested but gave me anti biotics anyway. i was only meant to take them for 3 days which i did but they made me incredibly sick and i had to take 3 days off work due to vomiting. The doctor phoned me on friday to say yeah there's an infection and i was on the right antibiotics but i finished the course of antibiotics on friday and it still hurts when i pee/pee is cloudy with weird smell. so have they not worked? idk what to do i really don't want to go back on more antibiotics as i can't afford to take more time off work :/

    It sounds like the infection is still there. Best thing to do would be to go back to the doctors, even if it means going on more antibiotics. They might be able to prescribe a different one this time that will maybe agree with you better than the last one. Its best to get this treated asap as it can lead to a kidney infection which is not only even more painful than a bladder infection but can be serious and have complications.

    Take care :hugs:

    You definitely need to go back to your doctor. As above poster said, it can turn into something much worse. I'd also tell your doctor that you had serious side effects so maybe you can get a doctor's note signing you off work while you're on the antibiotics, that way you aren't calling in sick every day.

    Go back to your doctor and tell them you're still in pain. Also mention how sick you felt on the last lot of antibiotics. They may be able to do something to help with that.
    I would suggest taking them with a thick drink after or with some food if you don't already. It helps me.
