Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin and azo

cipro

I know diarrhea can wash some drugs out of your system -- is Cipro one of them? Symptoms are gone, urine is clear, and testing with AZO strips is negative but I don't know how accutrate AZO strips are.
You can buy a kit at the drugstore called AZO test kit, and it tests for certain levels in your urine. There are AZO pills that you can purchase over the counter to help relieve the symptoms, but you definitely need to see a doc. Sex can cause UTI's, so every time you have sex, it is a good practice to go to the bathroom when you are done. Sort of flushes the system out if you know what I mean. Don't wait about calling the doc. It will get worse.
I just looked up AZO and the regular AZO is just pain relief not treatment for a UTI. They do have cranberry tablets. But if you are not diabetic I would just drink cranberry juice and water. The pain relief ingredient says to ask your doctor if it will interfere with the antibiotic. The pain reliever is phenazopyridine hydrochloride not cranberry. So, I don't think taking it is a good idea unless you ask your doctor. I'm not sure if this chemical will cause any problems.
When I went to the clinic, they prescribed me Ciprofloxacin and said it should clear it right up and if the test results show anything other than what I told them, then they would give me a call. It's been 3 days and I've taken all of the medication, but sometimes I feel pain and sometimes I don't, but for the most part I know it's still there. I haven't ruled out the possibility of STD'S, but what could it be? I've had Gonorrhea before, but got it treated.
I thought it would go away, but it persisted and got worse over the next few days. I went to a doctor, and they of course thought it might be an std. They gave me a 'cocktail' of antibiotics, as well as running urine and blood test. A few days later it got very extreme, painful and burning. I went back to see a Dr and he had the test back... normal. They also prescribed Ciprofloxacin, which I took for 10 days, with no change.
They can be extremely resistant and/or if not the right choice of antibiotic won't fully clear them up. Did they do a culture and find the causitive organism? AZO can help a lot, but it also may be masking symptoms. Oftentimes doctors won't allow AZO without their permission first because of that reason. But I hope your UTI is gone by this writing.
i had this going on for about a week now, i been taking azo standard, cranberry pills, and ciproflaxin (spelling) to no avail. whenever i urinate and get ready to be done it burns on the uretha (spelling) and on the right side of the pube area, i had surgery to remove right testicle 2 years ago with no problems, but it burns on the right side and lower stomach above penis. im 28 male, and im lost on this, i have no insurance so any info would really help before i go to a doc...
I am a nurse aide and I have the most trouble at work while lifting patients and the only time I feel good is while I take antibiotics or when I take AZO and Cystex pills. What can be wrong and how can i ease my troubles until next month? I only drink water and milk now and quit coffee and soda altogether now.
I took an AZO UTI test today that looks for Leukocytes and nitrites - both were negative 2 minutes after testing (followed directions) put the testing swab back in package, pulled it out several minutes later and there was some minor color alteration in the leukocyte test (though initially after 2 minutes as the instructions read there were NO changes in either, no positive indications) I am in what was a monogamous relationship and am of course concerned.
I have tried drinking a gallon of water per day Taking up to 15 cranberry pills in one day (no, not every day, just twice, so far) Drinking cranberry juice Taking Echinacea pills and Vitamin C Eating frozen and dried blueberries I have used a home UTI Test (from AZO), which says I have high levels of Leukocytes (white blood cells), in my urine, but not high levels of Nitrite. I'm not running a fever, so that's a good thing. Yes, I know, the best answer, is to go see a family physician.
It was 113 approx outside in the summer and I sat in the truck with my parka on, windows up, baking in the truck (yet feeling very cold) I used anti bio-tic's also, but until they kicked in , I needed the AZO and aspirin/Ibuprofen for symptoms. I also found generic AZO @ a dollar store. Hope you get feeling better soon.
I have taken Doxycline 100mg capsules for 10 days and I am currently taking Ciprofloxacin 500mg for 10 days and still no improvement. This is very fustrating... doesnt seem like there are many links out there to this specific type of problem. This is the first link that actually explains what I am going through. PLEASE let me know if you find anymore information on this. Or if anybody can help!?!?!
