      I have had uti for weeks and been on macrobid twice.  I have been trying to research supplements and im not getting much help.  Asked dr as she just rolled her eyes yet i read of people who take probiotics to help.  I feel so sick on this antibiotic i dont know if i can even take anything else.  Are you able to sleep, i find bladder has me up every hour

      I don't get up to go to the bathroom alot.

      But the pressure is really annoying. What worries me is when the culture comes back it's a low grade which they said they normally don't treat. But being that I'm symptomatic. They are. They make me feel like it's odd that I have pressure.
