Recovery & Support for Antibiotic-Resistant Infections

At NYU Langone, doctors treat an antibiotic-resistant infection with medication. Depending on the severity of the infection, people taking antibiotics typically notice a reduction in their symptoms within two weeks of beginning treatment. 

However, some people may become reinfected and need additional medical treatment. Most recurrences happen within one to three weeks after discontinuing therapy. You should report any change in symptoms to your doctor immediately. 

If you experience a recurrence, NYU Langone doctors can prescribe additional medication to treat your infection.
