Hello, I have been prescribed cipro (1 a day for 7 days) for a severe sinus/ear infection. I also have a UTI and hve been prescribed macrobid(2 daily for 7 days).

But she stressed how important it is for those whose have taken antiobiotics. I'm on antibiotic now for a sinus infection. Never had one before in my life. I'm having a trans/vag US on 1/9 to view bilateral pelvic masses over my ovaries pressing on bladder that were viewed on the pelvic U/S in her office 11/30. We are hoping that it just may be scar tissue. I'm big on yogurt too as I can tolerate fat free yogurt pretty well. Healing to all!
Amoxicillin ia what I'm on for ear infection
I am hopeful you will be able to give me some insight, as I am very discouraged. About 2.5 weeks ago I went to a walk-in clinic (family doctor) for a sinus infection. While there, I told her that I did have some pressure (urethra area) and urinated frequently at night. She did an in-office urine test and noticed moderate blood in the urine, but none of the other markers that would indicate a UTI.
I developed a uti while on zithromax for a sinus/chest infection, was put on septra ds , symptoms only got slightly better, then got worse, was then put on macrobid an symptoms have not been relieved, symptoms are : pain in bladder area, all the way down to urethra,having to void q 1/2 hr, some blood seen on paper when wiping,unable to walk too much as pain and pressure in pelvic area increases, went to ER ,they did a urine dip -showed no infection (but I am still taking the macrobid) did an ult
So, if you get any kind of infection while on tx be careful what you take. Dr. Gish told me I can NEVER take macrobid - it is very bad for the liver but it is stronger than the other meds. The second Rx gave me a terrible rash. So I'm on cipro now.
I had some sinus issues and had gone to the Dr. the previous week for a UTI infection. I was on macrobid during the weekend we were together. He also felt that he had a fever. On Monday, May 31, I began having an itchy feeling in my vaginal area and attributed it to a yeast infection from the antibiotic and the increased activity. I called the Dr. for a diflucan and that did not have any effect.
This began to get me scared and I began a course of several antibiotics. Macrobid AND Levaquin (1000mg)xday as well as doxicyclene 100mgx2. I did this regimen for about 12 days and then switched to Cipro and Doxi combo for another 8 days. About 10 days ago I started having a sore throat and I noticed the back of my tongue being very white. I have also had bad allergies and bad post nasal drip. 3 days ago my tongue was very coated and I scraped it.

I think I have a sinus infection (blowing out yellow junk, when I can get something out, otherwise it just pops my ear...OUCH)!! Sorry TMI! Anyway I wasnt sure if they could prescribe you anything or not. Should I call my PCP or OB office? Thanks for any input. Oh and my u/s went well on Friday! He is growing right on target. Although they did say his head is a little big....about a week ahead of schedule...HA! Oh well my DS has a big head too.
I could have written your querry myself, word for word. I am going through it right now. I thought I had a bladder infection early in July, post intercourse. The dr. office discarded the urine not realizing it was to be cultured, so the dr. put me on Macrobid. I still had symptoms weeks later, culture was negative and my FM was symptomatic which it is whenever I have an infection anywhere in my system.
Also i want to point out that i was on amox for 14 days for a Sinus infection before the onset of this UTI, it started the day after i stopped, then i went back on amox for two days when my doc said to get off b-cuz no e.

I cannot get a nights sleep... Lastnight I slept for 2 hours the night before I slept for 3... I talked to Doctor today about inducing because of my pain... He said no not for atleast another week. It took alot for me to ask him that because I was hoping for a completely natural birth (no drugs) and I know that with inducing you usually end up getting an epidural. I do not care... I told my DH lastnight that I would rather have a C- Section before I go through another day like this.
46 About one month ago, I had an exteme allergic reaction to cephzil which I was taking for a sinus infection. I was given a benedril shot and 2 prednisone pills, followed by a shot of cortisone and a prescription of hydroxexene (spell?) 12 hours later. I was then put on a 7 day step down program of cortisone. After 48 hours on cortisone and the hyroxexene, I began having urinary frequency, and feelings of leaking a little urine although no burning.

But it won't treat your cold/flu symptoms, just decrease the time it takes for your body to fight the infection. Just a word of caution with Echinacea - if you find that you are allergic to various flowers you would be best to avoid Echinacea as it is derived from a flower and people have been known to have allergies to it. Did you know that use of some nasal sprays for more than 3-5 days actually makes the problem worse? Okay I'll get off my pharmacy assistant podium now.
for a doctor to respond. I know you cant diagnos me but here is my story. In 1994 i began with diplopia and dizzy spells on and off. i used to also get bad hamstring cramps on and off. Then in 2003 the diplopia stayed. went to opthamology and they could not figure it out. did blood test for MG and tried 3 weeks of mestinon, did not work. had brain mri clear. In 2004 was in accident (rear end)right foot was in pain. foot dr said planter facisits and gave me foot arch supports.
I have been on Levaquin for 15 days for a sinus infection. I just hate it. Anxiety, lightheadness, thrush. I first was put on Avelox for 7 days prior for the infection and it also gave me the anxiety, plus hyperventiation. It was a mess. My doctor wanted me to tough it out with the Avelox by taking xanax to counteract the anxiety/hypervention. I stopped it at 7 days and got on Levaquin. No hyperventilation with that, but yes with the anxiety. etc.
I just searched online for -- treatment for thrush -- (thrush being a candida yeast infection) and there were lots of useful links to home remedies, which may make you feel worse at first but within a few days after the yeast die-off is done, you should start to feel better. You have to police your diet carefully tho, because the yeast are begging for sweets and yeasty foods! This is not as hard as it sounds, and for me it was WELL worth the effort.
I have had reoccurant uti like symptoms for a few months..all my cultures show no infection just white blood cells..I've seen a urologist who did a bladder ultrasound and cystoscopy both normal..I saw my gyn who did a pelvic ovaries were normal..he did not give me a ultrasound though..should I persue further testing since this could be a symptom of ovarian cancer? I am 30yr..also I did have a pelvic ultrasound 6 moths ago for something else and my ovaries were normal size.
hello, I've had the same problem as everyone and was terrified that it was an STD, but i've had numerous PAPs and all came back fine. for the past two summers, i get yeast infection symptoms without the discharge for a week prior to my period. last summer, i switched pills (from Tricycline to Alysse), but the problem is back with a vengence this summer. during my last period (which ended sept. 1) i noticed those "paper cuts" as well. i ended up in emerge on sept.
It started off with walking pnumonia and then went to a serious sinus infection and now I have the sinus infection along with an ear infection that was and still is unnoticeable. I have had bad anxiety for the past 3 months that started with my job and has moved to my health as every little thing seems to make me think I am dying. I do ask that you all try this as I noticed it a week ago and have been keeping a close eye on it ever since.
one lady suggested swabbing the area with rubbing alcohol (it worked for her). ouch! no thanks! i don't have the symptoms of a yeast infection but I'm going to give one of these creams a shot, nothing else is working. I'll report back in a while with my results.
I then went to my family Practioner(this was after we were settled in texas, myhubby is miltary so this infection came at the worst time) and was tested for all STD's and guess what? F-ING NEGATIVE!!! I have to say i have had 6 PELVIC EXAMS SINCE THIS WHOLE NIGHT MARE HAS STARTED! AND THE SIXTH DOCOR RIGHT OFF THE BATT SAID YOU HAVE AN ULCER ON THE BACK OF YOUR CERVIX WALL.
