I've been taking 50mg for 4 days now with little improvement for a kidney infection. I intend upping my dosage to 100mg for the next 3 days. Will this improve the effects and/or is this ok to do?

Hello, Jessica! How are you? Has there been any change?

Generally, according to the NIH, if there has been no improvement after taking an antibiotic for a full 3 days, it likely means it isn't working for you and you may need to try a different one.

The FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Hi, thanks for this. It turns out you're right. I tried another antibiotic and it didn't work either. It was more than likely kidney stones the doctor said and so I did a natural kidney stone remedy flush over three days and there was a vast improvement. It saved me having to get an x-ray etc in the hospital. Now I'm great. Although they are an extremely painful thing to have. All the best, Jessica.
