Ciprofloxacin for parasites

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin for parasites


Avatar m tn Normal I was going to give him Ciprofloxacin (500mg) tablet but it is contraindicated for children below 18 years and I wanted to give him Bactrim tab but the amount of bacteria is normal. What oral medicine (especially tablet) shall I administer to him? Remember to choose the drug from the essential drug list as I am living in a developing country; Ethiopia.

Avatar m tn I m MSM in Europe (Ger) and visited a Brazilian escort service in February who gets around a lot in Europe. He confirms he is HIV neg, and usually careful and tested regulary. I bottomed, he used a condom, but also a lot of spit (directly inside) because we had not much lube. 3 days after, I got a very itchy spot in that area, I thought of bedbug bite but now from memory looks like herpes pix on the internet. It vanished quickly without problem. 4 weeks later, serious rectal trouble began.
Avatar n tn This is because these two infections occur as intracellular parasites and need specific antigen and culture tests for their detection. The infective organisms may be located only within the bladder and/or kidney and come into the urethra during urination. If they are not flushed away by urine, they would continue to be present in the urethra and try to grow there causing irritation and pain.
Avatar f tn Had diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps. Took ciprofloxacin, 2x 250mg per day for 5 days. Diarrhea subsided but nausea + stomach pain continued. On return have had 6 parasite tests - Aeromonas Hydrophilia found, but ciprofloxacin taken. No other parasites. Symptoms are worse over 2 years. Symptoms: - Constant nausea 20 mins after eating, worse in evening, and vomiting if no anti-emetics taken.
Avatar n tn In general, the guidance for traveler's diarrhea is to take an antibiotic (Ciprofloxacin, Azithromycin) + an antispasmodic (Imodium) after the onset of symptoms (as long as there is not blood in the stool). If the symptoms cease after 24 hours of taking the antibiotic + antispasmodic, then you can stop both of the medications. If the symptoms are persistent, the usual recommendations are to take the medications for 3 days.
Avatar f tn (they did a scan) Im very frustrated as my doctor just seems to have put me on the long finger and givien me the regurin to shut me up but the problem is still there even if the tablets do help i have been refered to a urologist my apoitment is in 6 months i cannot wait that long i feel like my life is crashing i wont go out anymore as im uncomfortable im irritable all the time as im worried im constantly tired and its also affected my marriage, any ideas what this condition might be and waht tr
1543052 tn?1293306225 If so you may want to be tested for Hep B and if you had unprotected anal sex you may want to be checked for Hep C. These are STDs that effect the liver that may cause stomach issues and yellow stools. Also have your gallbladder checked. If all of this checks out you may have IBS IBS can cause yellow stools due to food moving through the intestines to fast, Back pain is not a common symptom of IBS but has been seen. Also the meds you have been on could cause the color change in your stool.
Avatar m tn You have to check your medicine for fluoride!!!!! in my case i took ciprofloxacin for parasites and i was not aware of the fluoride as an ingredient. constipation gone worse. instead of curing constipation i lost weight and big belly as african malaria people. you need iodine and not! hormones! but better use borax and after iodine because iodine remove fluoride as calcium fluoride.
Avatar m tn You can stay on the cipro as it may have weak activity but you will not be cured of this infection by the ciprofloxacin alone. Prostate infections need to be treated for a minimum of 15-20 days. This is because the prostate is an organ that the antibiotics cannot permeate easily. Follow the general advice in my previous posts to avoid irritation to the prostate. Do revert back with any further doubts you have.
Avatar m tn Suffered in silence with pain in central pelvic area for 2 mths, during which time I began to have a light brown discharge. After an episode of severe pain which spread to the rectal area diagnosed with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, 10 days of ciprofloxacin & nystatin suppository. Still experiencing discomfort and a distinct pain/sensation on the left hand side, blamed inguinal lymph nodes.
Avatar m tn Azithromycin 2g Flagyl 2g Doxycycline 100mg x 2 for 10/14/28 days Rocephin shot Ofloxacin 200mg x 2 for 10/14 days Erthythromycin 100mg x 4 for 10/14 days Ciprofloxacin 500mg x 2 for 14/21 days The public clinic / hospital docs are useless, they did ultrasound, swab test, urine test, NAATs and kept saying I was fine. Until last month, a private specialist ordered a semen culture and the test came back Strep B. I am currently on Augmentin 675mg x 2 for 14 days.
Avatar m tn There are many types of parasites in this world and some that do not show up in typical tests here in USA. Medical protocal is usually ineffective for parasites. Sounds like to me a good colon cleanse and strong probiotic will help you feel better. Good luck.
1543052 tn?1293306225 I was ignoring it and if any day problem get worse, I would take Pepto Bismol and problem would be solved for 1-2 days. Then I had Dengue fever, I went to Doctor and explained him everything.
Avatar m tn Amoxicillin 5. Ciprofloxacin 6. Vancomycin 7. Fidaxomicin I’ve seen posts of at least two people in the past who claimed they were cured with metronidazole but then it returned months later. This may infer it’s a Gram-positive bacterial strain or strains. I’ve used metronidazole with almost the same outcome. Saccharomyces boulardii (Sb) has been used in the medical world with other antibiotics against various bacterial strains with great success.
552060 tn?1215572483 Sometimes when I have had a flare, with bacterial overgrowth in the intestines, my gastro has prescribed a 10 day course of ciprofloxacin, which tends to sort it out. If Zoe cannot tolerate the Flagyl, you could ask for Cipro I guess. Getting the pediasure will help keep Zoe nourished until she can get back on to normal food. Oh, I feel so much better after reading your last post as I was really concerned for both of you.
Avatar f tn I frequently have diarrhea. Now, for the last year I have been living in St. Kitts going to school, and have had random bouts of vomiting and diarrhea. About 6 weeks ago I had a terrible episode of vomiting, mostly water diarrhea, and low fever. I returned to america after being told I had giardia to find out that I did not actually have giardia when finally tested, and also tested negative for celiac, IBD blood tests, C. diff, other parasites, and my stool culture was normal.
4616538 tn?1357546678 When I got the results, I ended having as treatment a course of Azithromycin 1gm dose, then 500mg for 7 days, waited couple of weeks to see results, but symptoms persisted, in fact they came back more severe and to my luck, new symptoms appeared: back pain, swollen joints, cold sores on tongue and skin redness (which I never had before), This was a immune reaction and according to the Infectious Disease specialist teamed with my Urologist back then, they assured me that with a course of 14 day
Avatar m tn What is the associated risks beside those that are similar to that of having unprotected fellatio? I know of intestinal parasites and hepatitis A/B on top of those listed for unprotected fellatio. For those listed, would the course of antibiotics I took also took care of them except for Syphilis? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I've also had negative Ova/Parasite tests but I don't know what this looks for. You mentioned a test you had done that looks for over 400 types of parasites. I need to find out what they've actually looked for. I've started thinking I would have to live with Irritable Bowel Syndrome for the rest of my life and I've been trying to find some healthy alternatives, such as L-Glutamine to build up my gut and flaxseed oil to soothe a bit. This hasn't helped. I gave in and took the Bentyl.
Avatar m tn There is a reason you have to pay cash 1st and most insurance compaines will not pay for these tests. Also, why insurance wont pay for chronic Lyme, beacuse it cant be proved. In end, the CDC needs a better test, and I think many of these 2nd hand Lyme labs are not accuate at all.
233616 tn?1312790796 TX for 48 weeks relapser had hep C for 36yrs might TX again with the new drugs. So glad I did not read this before I went to Costa Rica,lived on the beach and in the water,ate lots of raw fresh fish. If I would have read this it would have been like going to see jaws.A very rare chance something would happen to me but would have been in the back of my mind.
288415 tn?1231634102 Av, its horrible. Mine has been going on for three years. The only benefit is that I do not hear my husband's snoring. I lay down and they immediately clog. I did used to get really nasty smelling crud out of them every morning. I have had times when my jaw is so sore, or my ear, or below my ear. This has been such a pain in "the ear" for me. Richt now the itchiness is truly driving me nuts.
Avatar m tn I went back to my Infectious Disease doctor. Both the blood test for parasites and the Fungitell (test to detect invasive fungal infetion) came back negative. He told me to just wait and see if my symptoms get worse. Very frustrating. Last week, I noticed what could've been blood in my stools. Then, a few days later, one of my stools was pale-colored and had what I can only describe as a fuzzy mold on it. I told him all of this, and he didn't seem to be concerned about it.
Avatar m tn I have had pretty much every test under the sun (HIV, MRIs, EMGs, EEGs, Sleep Studies, Western Blot, and the list goes on and on) and everything has come back normal except for 1 and I will go into that further down. Ok, so let's get on to my symptoms. At times I have this feeling of an inner tremor of sorts. It is real hard to explain to someone who hasn't felt it but I would correlate it to having an extreme feeling of a caffeine buzz.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor today and said the first thing he wants to do is get a stool sample to test for parasites and bacteria. So we'll see. But reading what's been posted I'm going to monitor my diet and see what happens. These episodes are scary and make me panicky which may be making it worse for me...I don't know!!!!
Avatar n tn March 4th so we will see. I am posting my updates since I think it is important for other people looking for some sort of answers to see what they may end up going through.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn In February of this year I got a CT scan and the ENT doctor said I have a severe deviated septum with chronic sinusitis. I was treated for a sinus infection and that was it. I still felt bad so I went to a neurologist. He wrote it off as a vestibular problem. I did vestibular therapy for 2 months with almost no relief. In May when allergy season started, everything got worse. I have had nonstop sinus pressure/pain, headache, dizziness, major eye strain, my face is sore, my teeth are sore.
