Hi, and a sympathetic ow!

I always get trimethoprim, and does the job for me.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Hm I think that is the one that doesn't work for me......but I could be wrong

I've come across amox and cefalexin as well? I think cefalexin is the 'new' one.

As I got Trimethoprim it doesn't matter any more

Only 3 days worth so I guess I will still be ill then & I will see the Dr then

Cefalexin for me everytime-its the only one that dosen,t give me thrush-i had a very bad reaction to trimethoprim-it gave me swollen lips, massive open sores in my mouth and also down below-awful awful awful!!

I might as well take smarties as trimethoprim - I have had it loads of times & no effects

The cystitis will fade then come back in a few days
