 1  uti started to have abdominal pain right away after 1st dose. Pain getting progressively worse each day.. It is a 3rd day, I do not know if i can tolerate it a whole week, as prescribed.... Now, on top, of the abdominal pain i have pain in my back, nausea and very bad headache. Afraid, if it progress like that, i may end up with convulsions ! Will call the doctor tomorrow for the change of drug. F 51 3 days

 4  UTI/kidney infection Yeast infection, but normal with antibiotics. I was given Vantin 100mg twice daily after being on IV antibiotics for 4 days. I actually quit them due to being so sick and visiting my doctor. My doctor switched me to levaquin, which I found out was poison and was having side effects after 8 days of it, plus it wasn't helping my infection. I decided to take the Vantin after quitting levaquin and my symptoms have imoroved. I still have kidney pain, but my fever is gone. The IV medication, which is in the same class as Vantin worked the best. I had a bad doctor at the hospital that took me off the IV antibiotics early. I will use Vantin again if needed for UTI/kidney infection. Now I hope I do not have permanent damaging effects from the leviquin. F 38 6 days

VANTIN  (CEFPODOXIME PROXETIL):  This medication is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This medication is known as a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
