Nitrofurantoin has been recognised as the first-choice antibiotic treatment for all UTIs by Public Health England. However, if for any reason Nitrofurantoin is not suitable for you, our clinicians may prescribe Trimethoprim as an alternative treatment.
Mild symptoms of UTIs may also clear up on their own within a few days. You should drink plenty of water and refrain from sexual intercourse during this time. Over-the-counter painkillers can also be taken to help relieve pain or discomfort.
