    Follow the instructions - it's not that hard.

    Side effects = Stop taking and see a doctor on Monday.

    Where's the confusion?

    Well if you think the side effects are worse than having the urine infection then stop taking them, but if not then stick it out and finish the course!

    It depends on the side effects. Get a telephone consultation with your doctor.

    If you stop taking the abx without treating the infection you almost certainly will need to take more.
