UTI-how long does Macrobid take to work?


I'm sure I'm not the first to ask but since I couldn't find any info...Do you know how long Macrobid takes to clear up a UTI? I've been on it for a little over two days and I still don't feel any better...I was nervous enough taking the medication (although I've read it is quite safe) but I am really worried about it not clearing up.

FYI: I have been drinking lots of water to flush out my system too.

I was on this last week... They had me on 2 pills a day for 7 days and I started noticing a difference on about day 3.... I hope you start to feel better soon! Try drinking some unsweetened all natural cranberry (or get the azo cranberry pills) they will help also.

Do you think I'm overreacting to say that I am on day 3 today and thus far do not feel any better (maybe even a little worse...the burning feels the worse its been today). I don't know if I should give it more time or call my doctor.

Thanks for your reply ellinme1, I appreciate it.

I think I will give it one more day. I started to feel better this afternoon (not sure if it's because I was out grocery shopping and distracted) so I will see how I am feeling tomorrow. If not I will definitely call my doctor...he works two min. away from my home!
