Question: UTI

 KariLyn - Fri Jul 08, 2005 12:54 pm

Is there any connection between methamphetamine useage and a urinary tract infection. I'm not sure if that is what I have or if it is from the methamphetamines. I always feel like I have to go to the bathroom but when I do it takes me a long time to start to go. I am not a heavy meth user (I don't stay up for days at a time). Iwould like to have a ua dip done but I am not sure if the meth will show up. could you please let me know what to do.

Getting off the drugs and see if your problem resolves. You know you should probably get off them anyway, right? :wink:
