Hello, E. Faecalis is resistant to many commonly used antimicrobial agents.Usually in these cases antibiotics sensitivity test is done before prescribing them. He has to take those antibiotics to get rid of urinary tract infection. Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore,this drug should be given at evenly spaced intervals.
