Seizures and antibiotic augmentin

Had to go to Doctor`s Care today, due to a miserable UTI. I am a myoclonic seizure patient and due to this UTI issue Am on no sleep. Not good for seizure condition. The Dr. was aware I had the seizure problem and prescribed cipro, which I had to call and tell them to send me something different. The one at the pharmacy now is Augmentin. Just need a neurologist`s expert opinion as to whether or not it is alright to take Augmentin with my myoclonic seizure condition. Do not want to start up any seizures. However, this UTI is hurting so badly!!! If It is too risky then I can`t take it!!!! Please help me. If the medication doesn`t go with my seizure condition, then please tell me what the safest antibiotic would be. Thank you!!!

When the lab did your urinalysis, it printed out a page giving your doctor the best options to treat your UTI.  You have the right to go to the clinic and ask for a print out of this page - talk to your doctor about all the antibiotics listed and determine which one is the best for you.  If he/she doesn't want to "waste time" trying to decide - find another doctor who will.

Your health is important.

Just for comfort,cause I know how painful that is,  you could take cranberry pills, or even canned cranberry fruit. or juice. for pain.
It has been a few days so you hopefully got taken cared of.
