Common Questions and Answers about Cipro keflex

cipro

The conclusion was that most seem to be infections of some sort, along with the advice to have a endodontist check for various problems. I have decided to treat myself and started taking Cipro 500mg tabs. I have taken them for approximately 5 nights now and alternate 1 tab and then 2 tabs. I have had relief and only have slight pain now. I have made it a point to use my waterpik every night since I started the antibiotics with special attention to this area. My questions are...
I had tonsillitis so my Dr. proscribed the antibiotic Cipro (Ciprofloxacin HCL 500mg). I took it for 7 days around day 5 or 6 I noticed I was getting small red pimply bumps on my chest and neck. I waited hoping they would go away but they just got worse so I called my the Dr. He prescribed Methylprednisolone 4 mg, a low dose steroid that I had to take for 7 days. This caused my rash or hive or whatever to go way. Although 2 days after my 7 day dose was up they came back again.
I was able to make it through a Doctor visit and taken OFF Cipro (which was free at Publix) and put on a stronger Keflex type drug that was $226.26 with a $25.00 coupon. This one has very few side effects and I've always been okay with Keflex. Thanks for the help!
Had intercourse two weeks ago, unprotected, she's clean, but we had anal sex. Frequency urinating 5-7 days later, clear/white-ish discharge in the mornings. Went to a urologist. Urine, negative, culture, negative, STD's negative. Clean bill of "laboratory" health. Gave me Cipro and said "non specific urethritis". Had an adverse (non-allergic) reaction to the Cipro, so he said "it happens" and gave me Keflex.
I HAVE BEEN ON CIPRO FOR 1 WWEK AND SOME ALLERGIES DECON. ALSO WELL, TODAY I WOKE UP WITH A BLISTER OR SORE IN MY NOSE? WHAT COULD IT BE? I DONT SNEEZE? JUST FEEL ALL STUFFY? NOW IM TAKING KEFLEX? ONE EYE FEELS DRY TOO? SAME SIDE SORE IS INSIDE MY NOSE? IS THIS ALLERGIES? OR STRESS?
It's not MRSA. She told me the bacteria was susceptible to the Keflex and to Cipro, for which she wrote me a scrip to take when the 7 days of Keflex was gone. She said this would take a while to go away. So now, while the infection does not look to be getting worse, it is getting better very slowly (yes, she warned me). But I am google-happy and everything I read says this stuff is awful and contagious.
She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using Altabax ointment. Still, no improvement. When one spot is almost gone, she will wake up with a new spot. It has been a never ending cycle. She had a negative strep culture. That is the only test they have done. It does not itch or burn.
Thanks , I apperciate your time, I was actually given the cipro because my MD is thinkng a prostrate infection, I just stoppped taking it because I want to retest for Chlamydia Asap, the first test I took that came back negative which was in sept 08, I was on Keflex, due to a pilonidal cyst that is now removed, but I was unaware that the Keflex could effect the NAAT, but I did also have a urinalysis prior to the STD test that yielded no WBC's.
After 9 weeks of cipro 1gm od, Strep b was found in the semen culture. Unfortunately, I had a urologist who treated me macrobid, keflex, doxycicline,flagyl and zithromax. When I suggested IV vancomycin as I am allergic to ampicillin, He said that's only for abcesses. How do you get your urologist to use the appropriate antibiotic treatment?
Well, flagyl is for bv and trich, and trich isn't technically a bacteria. I think you need to ask the doctor and find out exactly what it was.
hi since may of this year, i have been on the following, keflex twice(70 pills total), cipro twice (40 pills total), azthromycin twice (8 pills total), doxycycline (40 pills total), bactrim(30 pills) and 3 rocephin shots). would that be why for the past few months i have had yeast/fungal issues, they come and go in my groin and under stomach and arm area, and little yeast bumps on body?
And so now have had two different IV antibiotic occasions, and 10 days of cipro, followed by 9 days of septra ds, followed by a few days of keflex, and I was switched to levoquin? (something like that). My scrotum is worse, it swells up and reddens and this worsens throughout the day. The epididmytis pain is much better than a few weeks ago, but I’m still hobbling around.
I talked to the pharmacist and they said with my resistance to macrodatin (not sure of spelling) cipro and levaquin and allergy to penicillin, ceftin, and now batrium, not sure what they can do for me :o I can take Keflex but I'm reading that is most likely not to effective in treating UTI's. I'm sure fear is not helping my UTI sensations. How big of trouble may I be in concerning this situation? What can they do? Any input would be grateful.
One other question, does the discharge from chlamydia appear spontainoulsy or is it only on arousal, my discharge is pre and post arousal only, and I talked to Dr Edawrd Hook, he highly doubts chlamydia, also I spoke to my PCP tonight and he said Keflex would not have affected the test, as Keflex is not effective against it, and the fact it was done first thing in the AM helps the accuracy of the test,,,,, so yeah is a spotainous discharge ( I would assume so right, a continous discharge) or is
About three months ago, after thinking I was getting the flu, I developed a major UTI and wound up in the emergency room. It took one three day dose of Keflex and two doses of Cipro to get rid of it completely. I am left with leakage only after peeing and dull pain and sometimes a knife like pain in the lower urethra. My doctor's answer to my questions, are, "I don't know".

A couple months ago I noticed burning while urinating, so I took keflex. That didnt work so I took levaquin. That didnt work do I went to the helth clinic. I was given dexocycilin. It somewhat worked, but didnt stop the problem. I then took deoxycilin and cipro and It seemed like it was working but I ran out of pills. I took dexoycilin again and it did nothing. I took a z pack of azithromycin. that didnt work. I do not know if I have herpes or chlymidia.
Furthermore, I was 5 days into a 500mg X 3 per day of a 10 day Keflex prescription for a minor surgery procedure. I finish the medication as directed by the prescription. It has been 21 days since the encounter I have had no symptoms that I can relate to STD from reading the forum. The only condition I have currently is swollen left jaw. I sneezed and felt some thing “pop’ and now my jaw is swollen. I’m not claiming it to be a symptom I just do not want to over look any details.
One thing I keep wondering is if a recent salivary gland infection and a cycle of amoxicillan and a cycle of keflex might have something to do with this? I have a wicked infection and I ended the keflex cycle about 10 days prior to this happening. Just odd that I'm having two significant issues like this back to back. Any ideas would be helpful.
ultrasound was negative but have not gone under any other testing.. antibiotics of keflex did help for about a week in the beginning then was prescribed cipro which didnt do anything.. now i have been prescribed an anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling, but for some reason i dont think the urologist knows whats really going on down there.. Im thinking of going back to my primary care physician to get more tests done like a c-scan or MRI..

You may also want to ask the doc what other medications are in this family of medications so that you can steer clear of them this is super important to your health and future. I have issues w. Keflex and Cipro and can't take any meds that are in that family because i also have adverse effects to them. So congrats are in order and by now i am sure that your system has flushed them thru your body so this is just a little wake up tap.......
I am on the birth control pill, and was on Keflex mid-September, then on Diflucan at the end of September (2 doses- one on the 26th and another on the 28th). I had my period Oct. 1-5, but now I am feeling symptoms of pregnancy. (I was also on Cipro Oct. 8-13, but have read that this antibiotic does not interfere with BC). Could these drugs have interacted with my birth control into the new month?
My Dr. put me on Keflex, then Amoxycillin, then I got sick with chest congestion and swollen lymph nodes behind my ear. He gave me doxycyline(spelling?) chest cold went away then I got a lesion in my ear all the while I still had the scalp lesions. The went back to the Dr. and he gave me tetracyline followed my Cipro.- Then my left hand/palm along with my right swelled up all day long - still had the scalp problems. Then at the beginning of March went back to the Dr.
I felt not right and was put on 875 Augmentin twice daily rather than the maintenance keflex 500mg twice daily. By April 2 I was uncomfortable and went back. The Dr. took a culture and hospitalized me for 24 hours. I had iv vancomycin and iv clindamycin 300mg twice a day. When I left the hospital i stayed on iv vancomycin twice a day for 4 more days (the iv started Thurs night) and took clindamyasin 450mg 3 times a day. On Mon.
