Antibiotics are used for "kidney infections." The particular antibiotic depends on your personal history.

Some common examples used for urinary tract infections include Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim), Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Levaquin (levofloxacin), MacroBID (nitrofurantoin), Keflex (cephalexin), as well as many, many others.

You should discuss with your physician what particular drug might be best suited for you if you believe you have a urinary tract infection.
