Re: Symptomatic treatment of uncomplicated lower urinary tract infections in the ambulatory setting: randomised, double blind trial
The aim of the study to assess NSAIDs over antibiotics for uncomplicated UTIs is a clinically useful question. It is difficult to see why the NSAID chosen was one with a high level of cardiovascular side effects (see the BNF). Rather than a more clinically useful NSAID, with a lower risk profile, such as ibuprofen or naproxen.
It is a shame that the usefulness of the study is reduced by the choice of high risk NSAID.
