Cipro and antacids

Common Questions and Answers about Cipro and antacids


Avatar n tn I was also very fatigued and nasuas at times. I went back to the doctor and had blood, urine, and stool tests done. All came back negitive. The doctor then prescribed me 10 days of cipro. Again not knowing I should drink milk or have iron supplements(potatos?) beacuse these bind with the cipro. stool somewhat cleared up and only dull pains in stomach. I thought I was cured. no nasuea, no fatigue, and i gained my appetite back.
Avatar m tn I have been to my PCP and he took a swab and gave me Cipro. The swab was negative and the Cipro did nothing. He sent me to see a ENT and he put me on a throat spray and still nothing. I saw a second ENT and he had no idea what it was or what was causing it. Any ideas ?
Avatar n tn Felt like a knife being run through me at times. Nausea also. No relief with antacids, etc. I went to my DR and I had scans for a stone. All neg. They thought epidytuimis(sorry for the butchering of that). Put me on Lev-something, antibiotic for a week. It subsided but the pain came back about the 5th day. Long story short, I have been to several doctors, urgent care and finally the er yesterday. All tests come back no prob.
Avatar f tn Stop the Pepcid and try chewing Tums, if this helps then we know it's too much acid. Tums, and other antacids gets rid of the acid. But you need to see a doctor about the GERD, the bile coming up can erode your esophagus. When sleeping, keep your held slightly elevated. Your stress is adding to your problems. You really need to see a gastroenterologist to get some help with this. It's nothing serious, but left untreated can become serious.
Avatar n tn Ive seen one of the best gi docs in the us and NO answers. Finally i decided to start taking over the counter antacids 3-4 times a day and its WORKING! OMG, i cant even beleive it. Im so excited because i ate 2 bananas today. I havent had a banana in over 5 YEARS!!! Hyperacidity is what i think my problem is. I recomend taking the antacids for several weeks before trying to eat any raw veggies or thing u know trigger the pains.
Avatar n tn While taking Cipro (antibiotic) for so-called kidney infection and a bad sore throat another time, this seemed to keep my pain down to a minimum, but as soon as I finished taking it, the pain would start at full speed again and get worse. Could this be a case of sphincter of oddi dysfunction? Should I go see a gastroenterologist? Does anyone else have this type of symptoms?
Avatar f tn Some mornings it hurt my stomach though and gave me heart burn and that is kind of hard because we can't take antacids...but I couldn't ever give itup. No way. As lethargic as we get on treatment - we NEED that jolt to get going and be able to make it in to work! :)) Go for it!
Avatar n tn However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control. Remember, too, that acute co-morbid events, ie: coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state.
Avatar m tn not b/c of some kind of serious risk. Example, no antacids (Tums, etc). Eating a regular diet will not affect you. Cipro is one antibiotic that tends to be a bit harsher side effect wise (mostly stomach upset, diarrhea)...but those side effects will go away once you've finished the course. If the side effects become bothersome or worsen, certainly let your doctor know, there are other antibiotics out there.
1840891 tn?1431551393 Usually if I catch them early the Cipro starts working pretty fast, but not this time. By 7pm I was in severe pain and starting a fever. It was 99.9 with chills when I first measured it. It is now up to 100.6 and still hurts a lot in spite of also using that analgesic for bladder pain, and the scary thing is that the urine has something in it, little clumps and strings, that look like blood.
Avatar n tn All these antibiotics could have caused acidity and hence the stomach aches. Maybe antacids should be started and give frequent small meals to combat the acid. Give your son a lactobacillus preparation. Consult a neurologist to rule out meningitis. Take care!
Avatar f tn I have to really watch my diet and use over-the-counter antacids that contain calcium and magnesium. Doesn't totally get rid of heartburn, but I'm greatly relieved to be free of the PVCs. However, I do now have a very hard, pounding heartbeat every time I eat, climb stairs, etc. The heartbeat isn't all that fast, but my heart just pounds. So I really don't need that to get worse. Hopefully your experience with clindamycin will be okay. And any of mine in the future will be too.
Avatar m tn I went back to the doctor after having symptoms of nausea, ( I have acid reflux and I have no gallbladder) I had a stiff neck and shoulders have been hurting and I had a white thrush on my tongue pain through out the body its sporadic. However I have not had any nights sweats. ( I may wake up hot but not sweating) no fever or swallow lymph nodes that I know of and my doctor has not felt any even though I might have a slight pain or burning sensation under my arm pit but no swollen lymph.
Avatar n tn Is there any counterindication against using Bactrim and Cipro in combination? My own urologist says he never heard of anyone doing this and is therefore hesitant about pursuing such a treatment. What do you think of the synergy between the two drugs? Thank you for your time. As I'm sure you know very few men die of Prostatitis, but there are times when many of us wish we could!
Avatar m tn I have also just yesterday switched my laundry detergent to one with no perfumes or chemicals. Nothing works. The redness and irritation continues. It’s better with erection and in the morning. It’s worse in the evening. Please help me I am at the end of my rope.
Avatar m tn I take the Cipro when I go to bed (around 4am with my schedule) and again when I wake up (around Noon - again, odd schedule of mine) I'm not sure if it's the Cipro or not, but when I wake up I'm aching and have no energy. A bit nausea as well. After 2 or 3 hours it passes and I slowly begin to feel normal other than the sporadic spasms. Part of me wants to stop the Cipro but the other part says I should finish the bottle (I got a 10 day supply).
Avatar m tn I had gone to our family doctor over a period of about a year, in 2006, during which time I was given Keflex, Doxycycline, Cipro, Augmentin and a Clindamycin topical gel, (which actually seemed to accelerate and spread the infection on my face in the shaving area), and nothing seemed to do any good. The pimples do seem to get better if you break them open and remove the hair follicle, but I have had some linger for weeks if you don't get every single hair out of the pimple.
Avatar f tn Others -- Aminoglycoside antibiotics (such as gentamicin and tobramycin), thiazide diuretics (such as hydrochlorothiazide), loop diuretics (such as furosemide and bumetanide), amphotericin B, corticosteroids (prednisone or Deltasone), antacids, and insulin may lower magnesium levels.
Avatar m tn On the first time I went, they did an xray of the abdomen and it came back good and reports even said lower lungs clear. Days after that, they said it could be prostate infection and gave me cipro, i didn't like the adverse effects so I stopped. Right now my stomach feels like its numn but I can feel the burning sensation when I know I need to have a movement and when I do it's either in diahrrhea ( which burns the anus ) with blood or without.
233616 tn?1312790796 Of course, no matter how simple one tries to make all of this, it does get complicated. If you take antacids or proton pump inhibitors this will effect the treatment drugs and how absorbable they will be, if you take antidepressants you may have to be switched to a safer one than the one you take. This is because an SSRI using the same substate could result in serotonin overload and poisoning, a serious issue.
1927233 tn?1326673987 You say you do get some red meat but vegans can develop Vitamin-B12 deficiency, and even meat eaters too if they are on acid blockers or take antacids frequently due to stomach issues. You need both iron and B-12 to create blood cells and if the B-12 isn't there, your body may be freeing up more iron trying to generate blood, but without adequate B-12, the iron may just be floating around.
Avatar n tn I was also very fatigued and nasuas at times. I went back to the doctor and had blood, urine, and stool tests done. All came back negitive. The doctor then prescribed me 10 days of cipro.

Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn and if you had biopsies done, you can always send the slides to and IBD pathologist for a second opinion. Flagyl and Cipro do help some people with CD. while Flagyl can have some pretty nasty side effects, some docs will prescribe Cipro long term for maintaining remission. when you said you stopped 6mp cause of toxic levels, where you referring to metabolite levels based on the tests by Prometheus Labs?
Avatar m tn At his routine physcial he was found to have a PSA of 89. They placed him on Cipro for 3 weeks then waited 3 weeks and his PSA had gone to an astonishing 225! His biopsy was of course, positive, Gleason 8. Ct and bone scans showed left sided lymphnode involvement and widely diffused bone mets. He has had aches and pains for years but nothing unusual at the time. His alk phos was also elevated.
Avatar n tn And I saw the Dr and she told me to take antacids but I don't want to. So I'm doing DGL tablets and eating soft foods for a week now and NO RELIEF! The only thing I find works is: CHEWING GUM. But is there another way to heal my heartburn w/o DRUGS??? The soft foods don't work or do I need to give it more time? Also should I do the apple vinegar while healing with soft foods? Or does that burn the esophagus while healing?
Avatar n tn So he wrote me a general antibiotic for Septra and Cipro. ( I thought I had mono it was so bad ) Now, those medicines are really strong combined together. The fever and extreme tireness are gone. But, I am still hurting all over, have a horrible taste in my mouth, vomiting. Short of going back to the ER, I dont know what to do. My doctor already thinks I am a hypocondriac.
Avatar f tn The first thing that happens is a feeling of heat in my shoulders that rapidly intensifies and spreads across the front of my chest up to my neck. And it then quickly spreads down both arms and suddenly that part of my body gets soooooooo weak. I have to stop whatever I'm doing, it's soooo strange and intense. I almost feel like I'm going to collapse. My arms stay weak for a few minutes after while I just try to get myself back together.
Avatar n tn I've had both before and neither felt nearly as painful as this...but they gave me 2 antibiotic shots and a pain shot, and sent me home with Cipro which I took. 5 days later I was back at the Emergency room because I really was afraid my appendix had burst. It just hurt sooooooo bad. Fever still 101, blood tests all came back the same, and my pap smear was abnormal too. This is 5 days after taking medication. Dr. said maybe I pulled a muscle in my back (WHATEVER!!!!).
Avatar n tn I have been to a gastrointestinoligist and was infromed that I either had an infection or lymphoma, cancer in my lymphnoid glands in my mesenteric root. The doctor gave me cipro and then more tests and all the results came back negetive. I had 2 ct scans and both showed my spleen was slightly enlarged and a few lymphniod glands also enlarged. I have since been to see an Oncoligist and was informed that he thought that I might have a problem with my gallblatter.
