Brief Answer:
The course of UTI with antibiotic therapy

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting us with your health query,

The symptoms associated with UTI will typically start subsiding 24 - 48 hours after initiation of antibiotic therapy.

The infection will completely clear up by the time the entire course of antibiotic therapy is completed.

If you do not notice any improvement at all or worsening symptoms even after 48 hours of antibiotic treatment, then follow up with your treating physician to consider changing the antibiotic.

Hope this answers your question
