Cipro and kidney disease

Common Questions and Answers about Cipro and kidney disease


Avatar n tn I HAVE had 3 kidney infections in my life, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> one that was very severe, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I asked the DR. in the ER if I could use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>, because I had some at home and he said "No, it's not good for the kidneys, and we are admitting you overnight anyway hon". That's all I know and this was about 7 years ago. Anyway, I hope you recieve peace and closure in days to come.
867582 tn?1311630997 In 2008, the FDA ordered the black box warning for all fluoroquinolones (which include <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>). I started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> before I knew how dangerous it was (I'm over 60 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on aspirin). I had to stop it after the 3rd day because of really bad side effects. I was having to jump out of bed a dozen times at night with industrial-strength Charlie-horse cramps affecting my thighs, my calves.

Avatar n tn I have had 5 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infections <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stone in the past 6 months. My doctors say is is caused by a fistula (the disease makes itself a tunnel from pointA to pont B) that dumps bacteria from the bowell to the kidneys, this may be something uoi need to check on....
1833444 tn?1325560662 I have cirrhosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> throughout my treatment for many months to prevent infections during treatment. This is standard protocol at my transplant center for cirrhotic patients so it is safe even for those with more advanced liver disease than you have. Because it results in fewer hospitalizations for patients with advanced liver disease. FYI: A family doctor has no expertise in hepatitis C or liver disease so you can't expect him to provide medical help for your condition.
Avatar f tn I have lost my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> to this stupid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span>, I won't let it tske my life. My suesting is to go Dr shopping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> find one that is wiling to lisen to you.
Avatar n tn THIS CAN BE VERY SERIOUS!!!!!! like chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> serious, or end stage renal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> serious. not to scare you... but, to inform you on how you can stop this before it leads to that. I have been there ladies. I had constant BV, UTI's (which were always really kidney infections too), and indifferent and negligent doctors who just prescribed me whatever they where prescribing at the time for UTI's.
Avatar f tn Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>, Dent's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> (genetic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. For oxalate stones you need to restrict (not totally stop) foods which are high in oxalate like beans, legumes, dark green leaves, egg plant, spinach, beets, chocolates, wheat barn, rhubarb and nuts and fruit cake. Avoid Vitamin C as its metabolism produces oxalates in the body.
Avatar f tn I came down with a pretty nasty bladder infection about 1 month ago (painful, frequent urination, cloudy, bloody urine, etc..). I was put on a 10 day course of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all seemed well. However... Probably about the second day of treatment I developed pain in my lower back, which I would describe as being on both sides of my spine just below where my ribcage ends. I guess this isn't technically the flank.
Avatar n tn 9/4/12 - call Dr. with severe UTI; begin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> 9/7/12 - call Dr. -no improvement; kidneys now involved; pain & fever increasing; sent to ER for IV antibiotic Roseffrin (sp?) IV; f/u injection next day; marked improvement in kidneys; bladder less so; sent home on Doxycycline for 14 days; not much improvement 10/1/12 - UA =K. pneumoniae >100,000CFU/mL 10/3/12 - DO prescribed Cefuroxime, 500mg/BID 10/8/12 - feeling worse; achy, constant 99.5-8 temp; call Dr.
Avatar m tn This time I was given a massive dose of Ceftriaxone sodium Injection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a prescription for Omnicef 300 MG. With my Chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> Stage III due to previous kidney cancer when I lost my left kidney, I have many allergies to medications. My kidney goes into Acute Renal failure with many drugs including cipro. I saw my doctor and got the Injection yesterday and began the Omnicef today.
Avatar f tn This is beyond what a normal doctor should deal with. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> you don't want to develop Chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span>. You should ask them to do kidney function tests and not just urinalysis. Creatine, urea, and the like. A GFR rating is helpful and is the cumulation of a few different tests that estimate the level of kidney functioning. On many websites this is the number they refer to in discussing kidney functioning. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
Avatar n tn all these are things that keep me on my path, helping me cope with the fear that is naturally there. So remember to love, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> laugh, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> live, while at the same time, stock up on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> if you can get it, and be cautious. We aren't fully in control, nope..we have to now all live with the anxiety that more dreadful things may happen. That is a tall order, to tolerate that anxiety..but with support, and uniting with each other, we'll have an easier time of it.
Avatar n tn and there is almost always <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> pain before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> after i urinate. not all the time though. also my urine is always cloudy and sometimes i notice tiny particles in it. i had a pelvic before all this started....and it was fine. what kind of tests need to be done to see if i have IC? do i see a urologist for this?
1778927 tn?1381882347 On 12/14/11 I went to the doctor again because I was still having the right flank pain and I was peeing more. She ordered an ultrasound just to be on the safe side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> started me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> thinking I might have a UTI. After 3 days on cipro I began to bleed vaginally. Since I am like clockwork and my period was not due for another week I was a bit concerned. I stopped the cipro and made sure to schedule the ultrasound. 5 days into bleeding still I went for my ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stones but my mom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> brother have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.
Avatar f tn My doctor put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it went away. Two weeks after completing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>, it came back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I did another round of cipro. Two more weeks has passed after the past round of cipro and I started having severe joint pain again but this time is was all over my body, with fever, and then developed kidney pain and feeling like I am getting another urinary tract infection, but it never burns to urinate. I just feel swollen.
Avatar f tn Hello, Given your history of WBC <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> RBC in urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the symptom of pedal edema, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> causes should be ruled out. These include infection, pyelonephritis, kidney stones, polycystic kidney disease. Other causes which need to be ruled out include Bladder conditions (cystitis, bladder polyp, bladder tumor), Urethral conditions (Sexually transmitted diseases, urethral injury, vaginal inflammation), and certain bleeding disorders.
Avatar f tn Dr did ct scan on my head, stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chest xray. Only said I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stones. Please help. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not to mention the gland behind my left ear is always swollen. Could I have an ear infection? This discussion is related to Swollen Gland Behind Right Ear.
Avatar m tn Strep throat is diagnosed by culturing the bacteria from a throat swab. In <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> is suspected, a urinalysis will show blood or protein in the urine, and bacteria may be cultured from either the blood or urine. Infection responds to antibiotics. Consult your doctor. Hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn In not wanting to go on Prednisone again, we have used Salofalk - oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> suppository, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Flagyl <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Entecort as different times. My new physician suggested I think about Remecaid and I began Remecaid in October 2009. For the fisrt four months everything went well and the, 1 week prior to infusion I developed very painful joints all over the body. On the day of infusion, paindisappread entirely within four hours.

10866013 tn?1413403500 My wife contacted a rash November 2013 right around the time she had a bladder infection and taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>. We assumed it was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> but rash remained. Dr assumed Scabies <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> again that's a negative. We did 3 skin biopsies and all negative for IGG, IGA, IGM, C3, C5B-9 and fibrogen. Next visit was to do a patch test on back and two items came positive: bacitracin and Nickel. Between November 2013 and the Patch test (April 2014) she had very severe rash on chest, arms, back and buttocks area.
Avatar n tn Usually lasts from minutes to hours and is accompanied by occassional sharp pains that last for a few minutes, hot flashes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chills, sweating, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fatigue. I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span> (for a week for possible gastroenteritis), been checked for blood in stool (negative), been on Paxil for two months (stress), and had various blood tests which have revealed a steady increase in liver enzyme levels (SGPT and SGOT), and a "normal but low" white blood cell count.
Avatar m tn The pharmacist was shocked that parent had been given prescription for Macrobid and explained why (elderly, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span>, antibiotic less effective if can't achieve concentration needed). I researched <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found it on the BEERS criteria rated as a potentially inappropriate drug because of kidney issues. I was very concerned and called after hours service and dr. on call said stop the Macrobid since cipro was more effective and stronger. MY QUESTION: is the original prescribing doctor clueless?
Avatar n tn I was sent home with a prescription for Flagyl <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cipro</span>. I followed up with my primary doctor who basically just told me what the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>disease</span> was, that I need to eat more fiber, stay away from seeds and to come back if I have another flair-up. I'm 41, male, 5'10" 159lbs and in good shape. I've had a ton of fiber in my diet the last 5 years or so, high fiber cereal every morning, whole wheat breads, and I have a healthy dose of Metamucil each night at bedtime (3-4 heaping tablespoons).
