Difference between ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin


Avatar n tn About a year ago, my doctor diagnosed me with Epididymitis (swelling of the tube on the back of the testicle) on my right side and I took Ciprofloxacin (500mg twice a day for 10 days) and the very severe pains went away. My doctor also said the pain in my lower back when I run might be due to sciatica - swelling of a major nerve that runs from the lower back into the leg. He told me to take ibuprofen after my workouts if it still bothered me, and I've been doing that off and on.
Avatar n tn I have had two epideral injections done 1 between c7 and t1 and another between t1-t2. The first one was pretty quick and painless but the third was terrible and after 3 weeks my spine is very sore in that area in the morning. He wants me to have a third but I feel like that would make it worse. That is why I am hoping to get into a neurospine center. Will this false negative stop them from taking me?? I also hope that I will not get fired because of this or lose my disabilty payment???
Avatar m tn Arguably it was overkill to use both cefixime (Suprax) and ciprofloxacin to cover gonorrhea, but it wouldn't do any harm. My guess is that "avon" is azithromycin (trade name Zithromax); and indeed doxycycline for 7 days or azithromycin 1.0 g (single dose) are the two treatments of choice for NGU. (It is clear your doctor friend is very knowledgeable about STDs.

Avatar m tn Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis. Also, the epididymitis came after working out and I also have pain in my tighs, is it possible that i pulled my groin and also have epididymitis?
Avatar n tn On the test this Dr.uses are very advanced and expensive. He told me they can tell the difference between oxycontin and oxycodone on these tests.Thats why he has discharged me. Stated I was selling my meds. because I was neg. for oxycodone. Just makes me so upset he is such jerk. He honeslty believes he is better then anyone. Just an arrogant you know what.He knows it all. Nothing could ever go wrong so must be you.You must be pushing your pills. He does this test everytime you go in.
6708370 tn?1471493810 I will repeat, I do not quite understand why your doctor did not use riba this last attempt and I do not quite agree with their statement about no difference between genotype 1A and 1-B response. Please make sure and double check the doctors recommendations against various responses on this forum before your next TX. (It costs nothing to get confirmatory opinions) Also, do pay attention to the next Liver conference; AASLD this fall.
1275919 tn?1279839604 maybe, and this is just my thoughts, your dr made an even switch, for lack of better words…’even’ meaning here take this stronger medicine at 5mg…one every 4 hrs and see if that makes a difference or helps) I don’t think he meant take 2 every 4 hrs (I know the label say 1 or 2) b/c he should know that u would run couple weeks short….unless he wanted u to try 1 at first and if not helping then take 2…but make sure u call for an appt if u find 1 was working..so u took 2 and will need to call.
Avatar f tn Prescription rights for NP's and PA's (there is a difference between the two) vary from state to state. It is an unusual practice but it is true. Each state is different. PW my mother had pneumonia at the age of 70 caused by the Influenza A went through some years ago. I can relate. She too was in an induced coma and on a respiration for 5 days. We thought she would never make it. I am happy to report that not only did she recovery but she is still with us today. I was scared out of my mind.
Avatar n tn Check with the MFG of your prescriptions,,,,I can pretty much guarantee that unless you are independently wealthy, or are dying, you are getting synthetic chemicals for pain. This was how the difference between opiate, and opioid was explained to me. I would give you my personal reference however, this pain mgmt issue is so sensitive already, I don't like to get into the political/governmental/medical mess of it all or name names.
Avatar n tn I've been suffering from an inflammed and irritated meatus for just over seven weeks now and I'm really confused as to what's causing it or how to fix it. I'm in a foreign country at the moment so access to healthcare and consequently explaining my problem in a foreign language hasn't been the easiest. For that reason, I'm writing here to see if anyone could lend some advice. I suppose all of this started in late December when I received a sort of rough unprotected handjob from a sex worker.
