Please complete the course of antibiotic that you were told to take.
The normal course of ciprofloxacin treatment is 500 mg twice daily for 5 to 7 days.

Stopping treatment at 3 days can cause incomplete treatment of the infection and can result in drug resistance. This means that the infective organism will continue to grow and cause a recurrence of symptoms and would have developed resistance to ciprofloxacin.

Water intake should be over 8 glasses per day or 2000 ml.
Pass urine as soon as you feel the urge and do not try to hold urine for longer as this can cause infections and kidney stones.

Cranberry and other citrus juices and citrus fruits help in washing away the infective organism from the urinary tract.

Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
