about a week ago i went on antibiotics for bronchitis - amoxicillin three times a day - and then yesterday i started getting symoptoms of a uti. if im already taking antibiotics do i still have to go to the doctor or will i get a two-for-one kind of effect with the bronchitis and the uti?

If you have already been on an antibiotic for a week and the uti just started, then your current antibiotic won't effect this uti. I would recomend calling your Dr's office and ask if you could speak with their nurse, then ask what they recomend.
