Ciprofloxacin for throat infection

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin for throat infection


Avatar f tn I was on levaquin, cipro, avelox sporadically for 5 years. They were trying to fight a sinus infection. I ended up with 24 diagnosis from 7 specialists. I truly thought that I was going to die. Fluroquinolones work as a chemotherapy. They will infest every system that your body has and will kill or attack vital organs. It usually takes at least 3 years of not taking any fluroquinolones before you will really notice an improvement.
Avatar m tn Im on cipro and Doxy for a urine infection and the Dr said it should help clear the throat too but no luck.It feels like ive got a lump in my throat by the Adams apple and my tonsil area is really red and what look like small blisters just in front of the tonsils.Also the pain sometimes extends to my ears too and the area below my jaw line also seems sensitive.
936016 tn?1332769204 The authors make the interesting observation that in conjunction with gonorrhoeal infection of the throat there was a high rate of chlamyidal, HIV, hepatitis B and gonorrhoeal infections of the anus and or genitals in the study group. They found that the rate of antibiotic resistant gonorrhoea infections was high with as many as 27% of gonorrheao infections in the UK in 2007 being resistant to ciprofloxacin whereas none of the patients studied was resistant to the antibiotic cefixime.
Avatar n tn Ciprofloxacin is effective for many causes of bacterial infection in the throat so that is reassuring that you're covered for that. It's more likely viral since your antibiotic isn't taking care of it.
Avatar m tn The pains continued so i went to doctor thinking it was a bladder or kidney infection. He perscribed me ciprofloxacin but that did not help, another urine test, no infection. And after worrying alot about it, im starting to get panic attacks and tingling in my hands and feet, is it likely that i have HIV? please help.
Avatar f tn By that evening I had 103 F fever and my doc gave me anthromyzine (common to kill bacterial infection). But my Wednesday morning my throat was so much it hurt like tell to swallow anything (worst I have experienced ever). The doc added Ciprofloxacin (more powerful) to my regime (diagnosed me tonsillopharyngitis) but after a day now my throat is still terribly bad (very painful when swallowing) but my fever has dropped to 100.
Avatar n tn Finally, when people acquire STDs of the throat (the only site you tell us was exposed) they tend to be asymptomatic. As for your specific questions: 1. See above. Unlikely. 2. You have been exposed and are concerned. The only medical indication for you to be tested is your exposure and the risk from that is very low. Thus if you choose to get tested, it is much more for your reassurance than any thing else. This being the case, you should have your throat tested for gonorrhea.
Avatar n tn My daughter (25 years old) has swelling and inflammation in her throat and tonsils for more than 6 months and is taking her 6th course of antibiotics (penicillin, Keflex, 3 courses of Augamentin, and the 6th of Levaquin), but her throat still looks raw. Besides antibiotics, she was given Kenalog twice between January and June 2005. Her throat culture and blood test are negative. Her internal medicine doctor and ENT cannot figure out why her throat still raw.
Avatar m tn went to dr today he thinks i have sinus infection prescribed me cipro for 10 days is this good antibiotic for sinus infection?
Avatar m tn If it is a urinary tract infection it probably doesn't matter to wait but it may be uncomfortable for you for a few days so that is my opinion on it. If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that and/or fighting off the infection and/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli and E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point.
Avatar m tn But the doctors that it was because of exams DST never put your chances of having chlamydia and gonorrhea orally, after a few months I had an infection in the lungs. My doctor passed to me to take 7 days Ciprofloxacin 500 mg, 3 days Azithromycin 1g. I have not been diagnosed with any of these diseases, I think it was because he did not request a test for gonorrhea or chlamydia in the throat. After my medication my symptoms disappeared after 4 to 5 days later.
Avatar m tn On both these occasions the protection i was using failed, a local doctor has prescribed me 5x 500mg cipro - ciprofloxacin hydrochloride to be taken once per day for five. secondly 20x100mg medomycin/doxycycline to be taken twice daily for ten. Are these medications suitable and do you advise anything else before i can get an sti test when home. What are the risks from these two exposures to catching hiv? i have looked the internet and find that it is worrying me sick.
10049887 tn?1407462984 but I still have a white tongue, I also have been feeling fatigue, I've been to so many doctors, had a lot of test done, had a CT scan since I was having massive headaches and ear pain, the scan didn't show any abnormalities, went for a full STI panel, everything came back negative, HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, UTI, didn't test for a yeast infection..
Avatar n tn Symptoms 1) September 18th I was treated with Zithromax and Ciprofloxacin for a UTI at Urgent Care. I had a small pain when urinating with no discharge. 2)September 26th pain in my on both sides and top of groin developed. 3) September 30th tested at health department for gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trich, and syphilis which all came back negative. The doctor saw no physical condition for my groin pain. I have recently switched from briefs to boxers in the last 4 weeks.
Avatar m tn My sore throat is still persistent and my neck has felt swollen for a few days. Pelvic pain is still present. Day 21 (today) - Painful urination is gone, I think completely. Having bad pain / sensitivity in my pelvic region on both sides, it hurts to lay on my stomach or even my back, I can feel them pulsing. Went back to GP and confirmed I never had bacteria in urine and no bacterial infections so antibiotics shouldn't have done anything really.
Avatar n tn I received antibiotic Ceftriaxon vial for 5 days Cefpodoxime(orelox) 5 days without significant improvement in my condition So my ENT prescribed for me Co-amoxiclav and ciprofloxacin for next 5 days After all these medication white spot on tonsils went away but tonsil still enlarged till today . My question is that 1_could this tonsillitis due to acute HIV infection? Usually tonsilar enlargement by HIV will last how many days till return back to normal?

Avatar f tn I am still suffering stiff neck, headache, sore throat, fatigue, general malaise 12 days after starting antibiotics. Been struggling with this for one month total. Doctor said its possibly a virus as well. I had a kidney stone in my left kidney 20 years ago. Today started experiencing slight twinges in my left kidney again. I live in a remote area so a second opinion will require travel and overnight stay. Should I seek a second opinion? Many thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn Hello, After my research on internet (01/11/09), I learned that I got infected by Gonorrhea after receiving unprotected oral sex from my partner who had Tonsil throat infection. The symptoms (penile discharge, burning sensation, frequent need to urine) started about 3 days after the act and upon describing the symptoms to my Dr.
Avatar n tn After my research on internet, I believe, I got infected by Gonorrhea after receiving unprotected oral sex from my partner who had Tonsil throat infection. The symptoms (penile discharge, burning sensation, frequent need to urine) started about 3 days after the act and upon describing the symptoms to my Dr. he gave me i) Ciprofloxacin 500mg ii) Doxycycline Monohydrate 100mg twice a day for 2 weeks whilst refraining from doing any lab tests as he is not a specialist in STDs etc.
Avatar n tn Hi there! If you are already taking ciprofloxacin for the throat infection, it may be effective for the UTI as well; though it is not advisable to take antibiotics without confirming an infection and checking for sensitivity and medical advice and prescription. Take care!
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar f tn I did my research online this seems to be a gum infection and/or abscess of the tooth and very painful for the cat. I've never grabbed this cat, nor will it let me take it somewhere, it moves tries to escape doesn't like to be grabbed. Please tell me if there is something i could take, any antibiotic or pain killer or anti inflammation, anything. Unfortunately i have not much knowledge of medicine.
Avatar n tn Prescribed PMS-CIPROFLOXACIN 500MG as well as some APO-BENZYDAMINE throat gargle. After 5 days of treatment my tonsils and uvula are severely swollen with a some white specs on the tonsils. The pain has intensified on my right side. I can see the right side has a reddish swelling that starts from the puffy gum and proceeds up along the wall of my mouth near the back and appears to be pushing on my right tonsil. I also noticed it stems up towards the roof of my mouth a little.
Avatar n tn Doctor at hospital prescribed Ciprofloxacin thinking that with fever comes infection. My last meal before getting ill was a frozen chicken dinner. I have not travelled anywhere , nor been around anyone sick. It's been 3 days since the hospital visit, and i feel very "blah" , very tired and usually flush in the face.
Avatar m tn I'll explain everything in my story, because I don't know what is relevant, what is irrelevant, what is connected and what is not. I have a sore throat for 3 months now. All started 3 months ago, a sex worker performed unprotected oral sex on me for 1 minute. The very next day I felt a slight pain while urinating. This continued for few days and one week after exposure my throat became very sore for 3 days, then calmed down a bit but stayed sore, no fever, no anything else.
Avatar m tn Hi Doctor, I got an urethritis that was treated incorrectly. I'm male 28 years. 2010 in September I got some bug by sexual intercourse with my neighbor at that time. I got symptoms, especially pain when urinating. I went to the local urologist here in the countryside where I live. Despite several examinations nothing was found. The doctor gave me several different antibiotics which worked to some degree but couldn't resolve the issue.
Avatar f tn I personally do not know if I have some kind of systemic fungal infection; but the diet has made all the difference for me. It is tough at first....but do-able. 600mg of calcium citrate usually helps my foot numbness. I have no idea why. 60mg of P5P (the active form of vitamin B6, which is more easily assimilated) 2x/day, 30mg of zinc and topical Magnesium have helped to greatly reduce, but not eliminate, my muscle fasciculations and twitches.

Avatar n tn My father had gromits put into both ears in march due to an chest infection infection that spread to his throat and ears. Two weeks after leaving the hospital he developed an infection, his ears were red hot, weeping yellow fluid and he was in agony. We couldnt understand why he had developed the infection because were so strict with the dressing hygiene. He was prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg for 7 days, then co-amoxiclav 625mg for 7 days. Since then he has had recurrent minor infections.
Avatar f tn sShe was already on Ciprofloxacin for sinus infection diagnosed by pediatrician and he extended it for 1 month. Also - if symptoms stepped up pace he wanted her to try Prednisone. (This has been kicked around -but all mds wanted to avoid it) Recently things started acting up again - low grade fevers creeping up (this with sulindac 24h/d) feet getting cold again, intemittent numbness at various places on her body, racing heart with sudden slow down (ped.
