Avatar n tn Ciprofloxacin is not recommended for chlamydia and not considered reliable for cure. In that relativelyly large dose for 10, I suspect most cases would be cured. But it hasn't been studied and there is no way to know for sure. If you definitely have chlamydia, you should get onto more reliable therapy. If you're on cipro as a precaution and don't know you actually are infected with chlamydia, perhaps nothing need be done. If in doubt, ask the provider who prescribed it.
Avatar n tn I was just prescribed Cipro 500 mg for infection, duration 2 weeks. I coach and participate heavily in both of my kids soccer and also try to exercise on regular basis. After reading some of the side effects, I was wondering if I have to become a non-participant for the next two weeks. Please advise. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hi guys! I was put on ciprofloxacin for a UTI before I knew I was pregnant. I was 5 weeks at that point. I took a full 7 day treatment cycle 500 mg. Now I am doing my research and I am scared about what I'm reading. Is it going to hurt my baby??

Avatar n tn I took 1 dose of 500mg Cipro Friday night at 5:30p.m. Immediately felt flushed and red in the face. I continue to have flare ups 3 days later. How long does this take to go away.
Avatar f tn Also, I am being treated with Cipro, which I just took a round of that for a UT about 2.5 months ago. Should I be repeating the same antibotic so soon, and will it be as effective if I do.
Avatar n tn is it safe to take 125 mg of cipro each day for 6 months I was prescribed this for a UTI that keeps coming back. Also the pharmacy that filled the prescription gave me 250mg tablets and told me they aren't made in 125mg. and for me to break in half . But the info that comes with the meds says not to break.crush, or chew.

Avatar m tn I just wanted to find out if ciprofloxacin can treat gonorhea. I had a discharge on my penis and was prescribed cipro for five days.

Avatar n tn what type of sleep aid can I take with ciprofloxacin? Is melatonin safe? I am taking it because of a urinary /bladder infection 500mg. for 5 days.
Avatar m tn I was prescribed ciprofloxacin for a bladder infection. I have read a ton online about horrible side effects. I figure most people would post these types of stories rather than success stories. What is the truth? How safe should I feel taking this drug? I voiced my concern to my family doctor and he seems to back the drug. I took one pill and feel some slight side effects so far, but nothing extremely serious.
Avatar f tn I won't get into specifics, but likely due to introducing old masturbation toys. Cipro is not recommended, I believe due to it's ineffectiveness against other STD's. If the NGU is not from and STD, would the drug be effective?
Avatar n tn Had you been exercising at the gym non stop and got the muscle soreness when taking the cipro, then yes, I would have suspected that may have been a side effect from the cipro. Whilst you are ill with an infection and on an antibiotic, you should not be doing strenuous exercises anyway. You should give your body time to heal and take things easy. Also by exercising you may have been further spreading the bacteria around your system.

Avatar n tn Due to some minor mucus discharge the doctor took a swab test and sent off for testing. However he went ahead and got me a prescription for Cipro, 500mg twice a day for 20 days. He didn't tell me which bacterial STD he felt I might have, nor prescribed any other antibiotic. (Though I did get some steroidal suppositories for the pain.

1084115 tn?1385232189 the test came back positive and the doc (gastr doc)told me to take ciprofloxacin 500 twice daily for 10 days. i told him that im not sure i want to take this as i know its hard on the liver, he said i can take it as he asked back my hepatologist (they both work in the same hospital/transplant center).
Avatar n tn Hello, Most likely this itching is due to ciprofloxacin allergy. You can apply an anti-itch cream or steroid cream like dermacort to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as zyrtec,loratidine(Claritin) etc can also be used.They are comparatively non sedating. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. Covering the affected area with bandages and dressings can help protect the skin and prevent scratching.
443434 tn?1255894833 About the only good thing that can be said of ciprofloxacin therapy is that it is better than losing life or limb to an infection. Typically cipro is used as an antibiotic of last resort--the last, best hope before amputation or death. It is a very powerful antibiotic but it also has some pretty ugly side effects. Why haven't we heard from those people who took cipro and didn't have any visual problems? Perhaps we only hear about the coincidences that might occur purely by chance.
Avatar m tn Cipro is a broad-spectrum antibacterial of the class known as flouroquinolones. This class of antibiotic may not be effective against all types of bacteria and may contribute to the growth of anti-biotic resistant strains. The best procedure is to take a culture before prescribing antibiotics but few hospitals or physicians do this today.
