The primary method employed in the treatment of urinary tract infection is oral antibiotic therapy. When correctly prescribed and overseen by a qualified healthcare provider, oral antibiotic therapy is typically quite safe. However, occasionally people develop reactions to these medications. These reactions can be mild to life threatening. If you are taking oral antibiotics as treatment of a urinary tract infection and new or concerning symptoms develop, contact your doctor or go to the nearest emergency department for evaluation immediately.
