Cipro and antacids

Common Questions and Answers about Cipro and antacids


Avatar n tn I was also very fatigued <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d nasuas at times. I went back to the doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d had blood, urine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d stool tests done. All came back negitive. The doctor then prescribed me 10 days of cipro. Again not knowing I should drink milk or have iron supplements(potatos?) beacuse these bind with the cipro. stool somewhat cleared up and only dull pains in stomach. I thought I was cured. no nasuea, no fatigue, and i gained my appetite back.
Avatar m tn I have been to my PCP <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d he took a swab <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d gave me Cipro. The swab was negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d the Cipro did nothing. He sent me to see a ENT and he put me on a throat spray and still nothing. I saw a second ENT and he had no idea what it was or what was causing it. any ideas ?
Avatar n tn Felt like a knife being run through me at times. Nausea also. No relief with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids, etc. I went to my DR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d I had san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>s for a stone. All neg. They thought epidytuimis(sorry for the butchering of that). Put me on Lev-something, antibiotic for a week. It subsided but the pain came back about the 5th day. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> story short, I have been to several doctors, urgent care and finally the er yesterday. All tests come back no prob.
Avatar f tn Stop the Pepcid and try chewing Tums, if this helps then we know it's too much acid. Tums, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids gets rid of the acid. But an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> need to see a doctor about the GERD, the bile coming up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> erode an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r esophagus. When sleeping, keep an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r held slightly elevated. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r stress is adding to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r problems. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> really need to see a gastroenterologist to get some help with this. It's nothing serious, but left untreated an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> become serious.
Avatar n tn Ive seen one of the best gi docs in the us and NO answers. Finally i decided to start an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> over the counter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids 3-4 times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d its WORKING! OMG, i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>t even beleive it. Im so excited because i ate 2 bananas today. I havent had a banana in over 5 YEARS!!! Hyperacidity is what i think my problem is. I recomend an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> the antacids for several weeks before trying to eat any raw veggies or thing u know trigger the pains.
Avatar n tn While an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> Cipro (antibiotic) for so-called kidney infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d a bad sore throat another time, this seemed to keep my pain down to a minimum, but as soon as I finished an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> it, the pain would start at full speed again and get worse. Could this be a case of sphincter of oddi dysfunction? Should I go see a gastroenterologist? Does anyone else have this type of symptoms?
Avatar f tn Some mornings it hurt my stomach though and gave me heart burn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d that is kind of hard because we an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids...but I couldn't ever give itup. No way. As lethargic as we get on treatment - we NEED that jolt to get going and be able to make it in to work! :)) Go for it!
Avatar n tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> alive an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d/or anxiety control. Remember, too, that acute co-morbid events, ie: coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state.
Avatar m tn not b/c of some kind of serious risk. Example, no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids (Tums, etc). Eating a regular diet will not affect an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>. Cipro is one antibiotic that tends to be a bit harsher side effect wise (mostly stomach upset, diarrhea)...but those side effects will go away once an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>'ve finished the course. If the side effects become bothersome or worsen, certainly let an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r doctor know, there are other antibiotics out there.
1840891 tn?1431551393 Usually if I catch them early the Cipro starts working pretty fast, but not this time. By 7pm I was in severe pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d starting a fever. It was 99.9 with chills when I first measured it. It is now up to 100.6 and still hurts a lot in spite of also using that analgesic for bladder pain, and the scary thing is that the urine has something in it, little clumps and strings, that look like blood.
Avatar n tn All these antibiotics could have caused acidity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d hence the stomach aches. Maybe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids should be started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d give frequent small meals to combat the acid. Give an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r son a lactobacillus preparation. Consult a neurologist to rule out meningitis. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> care!
Avatar f tn I have to really watch my diet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d use over-the-counter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids that contain calcium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d magnesium. Doesn't totally get rid of heartburn, but I'm greatly relieved to be free of the PVCs. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever, I do now have a very hard, pounding heartbeat every time I eat, climb stairs, etc. The heartbeat isn't all that fast, but my heart just pounds. So I really don't need that to get worse. Hopefully an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r experience with clindamycin will be okay. and any of mine in the future will be too.
Avatar n tn Is there any counterindication against using Bactrim <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d Cipro in combination? My own urologist says he never heard of anyone doing this and is therefore hesitant about pursuing such a treatment. What do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> think of the synergy between the two drugs? Thank an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r time. As I'm sure an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> know very few men die of Prostatitis, but there are times when many of us wish we could!
Avatar m tn I went back to the doctor an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> having symptoms of nausea, ( I have acid reflux <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d I have no gallbladder) I had a stiff neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d shoulders have been hurting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d I had a white thrush on my tongue pain through out the body its sporadic. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever I have not had any nights sweats. ( I may wake up hot but not sweating) no fever or swallow lymph nodes that I know of and my doctor has not felt any even though I might have a slight pain or burning sensation under my arm pit but no swollen lymph.
Avatar m tn I have also just yesterday switched my laundry detergent to one with no perfumes or chemicals. Nothing works. The redness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d irritation continues. It’s better with erection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d in the morning. It’s worse in the evening. Please help me I am at the end of my rope.
Avatar m tn I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> the Cipro when I go to bed (around 4am with my schedule) and again when I wake up (around Noon - again, odd schedule of mine) I'm not sure if it's the Cipro or not, but when I wake up I'm aching and have no energy. A bit nausea as well. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> 2 or 3 hours it passes and I slowly begin to feel normal other than the sporadic spasms. Part of me wants to stop the Cipro but the other part says I should finish the bottle (I got a 10 day supply).
Avatar m tn I had gone to our family doctor over a period of about a year, in 2006, during which time I was given Keflex, Doxycycline, Cipro, Augmentin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d a Clindamycin topical gel, (which actually seemed to accelerate and spread the infection on my face in the shaving area), and nothing seemed to do any good. The pimples do seem to get better if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> break them open and remove the hair follicle, but I have had some linger for weeks if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> don't get every single hair out of the pimple.
Avatar f tn Others -- Aminoglycoside antibiotics (such as gentamicin and tobramycin), thiazide diuretics (such as hydrochlorothiazide), loop diuretics (such as furosemide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d bumetanide), amphotericin B, corticosteroids (prednisone or Deltasone), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d insulin may lower magnesium levels.
Avatar m tn On the first time I went, they did an xray of the abdomen and it came back good and reports even said lower lungs clear. Days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> that, they said it could be prostate infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d gave me cipro, i didn't like the adverse effects so I stopped. Right now my stomach feels like its numn but I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> feel the burning sensation when I know I need to have a movement and when I do it's either in diahrrhea ( which burns the anus ) with blood or without.
233616 tn?1312790796 Of course, no matter an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> simple one tries to make all of this, it does get complicated. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids or proton pump inhibitors this will effect the treatment drugs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> absorbable they will be, if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> antidepressants an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> may have to be switched to a safer one than the one an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>. This is because an SSRI using the same substate could result in serotonin overload and poisoning, a serious issue.

1927233 tn?1326673987 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> say an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> do get some red meat but vegans an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> develop Vitamin-B12 deficiency, and even meat eaters too if they are on acid blockers or an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids frequently due to stomach issues. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> need both iron <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d B-12 to create blood cells <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d if the B-12 isn't there, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r body may be freeing up more iron trying to generate blood, but without adequate B-12, the iron may just be floating around.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>not control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d out completely for 10 to 15 seconds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran>.
Avatar n tn and if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> had biopsies done, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> always send the slides to and IBD pathologist for a second opinion. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagylan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d Cipro do help some people with CD. while an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagylan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> have some pretty nasty side effects, some docs will prescribe Cipro an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> term for maintaining remission. when an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> said an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> stopped 6mp cause of toxic levels, where an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> referring to metabolite levels based on the tests by Prometheus Labs?
Avatar m tn At his routine physcial he was found to have a PSA of 89. They placed him on Cipro for 3 weeks then waited 3 weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d his PSA had gone to an astonishing 225! His biopsy was of course, positive, Gleason 8. Ct and bone san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>s san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed left sided lymphnode involvement and widely diffused bone mets. He has had aches and pains for years but nothing unusual at the time. His alk phos was also elevated.
Avatar n tn and I saw the Dr and she told me to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tacids but I don't want to. So I'm doing DGL tablets <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d eating soft foods for a week now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d NO RELIEF! The only thing I find works is: CHEWING GUM. But is there another way to heal my heartburn w/o DRUGS??? The soft foods don't work or do I need to give it more time? Also should I do the apple vinegar while healing with soft foods? Or does that burn the esophagus while healing?
Avatar n tn So he wrote me a general antibiotic for Septra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d Cipro. ( I thought I had mono it was so bad ) Now, those medicines are really strong combined together. The fever and extreme tireness are gone. But, I am still hurting all over, have a horrible taste in my mouth, vomiting. Short of going back to the ER, I dont know what to do. My doctor already thinks I am a hypocondriac.
Avatar f tn The first thing that happens is a feeling of heat in my shoulders that rapidly intensifies and spreads across the front of my chest up to my neck. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d it then quickly spreads down both arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d suddenly that part of my body gets soooooooo weak. I have to stop whatever I'm doing, it's soooo strange and intense. I almost feel like I'm going to collapse. My arms stay weak for a few minutes an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> while I just try to get myself back together.
Avatar n tn I've had both before and neither felt nearly as painful as this...but they gave me 2 antibiotic shots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d a pain shot, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d sent me home with Cipro which I took. 5 days later I was back at the Emergency room because I really was afraid my appendix had burst. It just hurt sooooooo bad. Fever still 101, blood tests all came back the same, and my pap smear was abnormal too. This is 5 days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> medication. Dr. said maybe I pulled a muscle in my back (WHATEVER!!!!).
Avatar n tn I have been to a gastrointestinoligist and was infromed that I either had an infection or lymphoma, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer in my lymphnoid glands in my mesenteric root. The doctor gave me cipro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d then more tests <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d all the results came back negetive. I had 2 ct san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>s and both san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed my spleen was slightly enlarged and a few lymphniod glands also enlarged. I have since been to see an Oncoligist and was informed that he thought that I might have a problem with my gallblatter.
