Dear Laurie,

I think you should have some blood work done. There were problems brewing for him to develop a back problem and a UTI. Perhaps he could not metabolize the drug because of the underlying health issues. It is possible that he doesn't find the antibiotic agreeable either.

Please let us know what you find out and we can offer some holistic suggestions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
