Common Questions and Answers about How long is cipro good for


Avatar n tn and, once it is cleared up, should I still go in for a deep cleaning or only a cleaning? Seems like the cipro is working well, but is it a good antibiotic for this type of infection?...seems to be, but concerned it will resurface. I know Keflex is what is normally used.
Avatar f tn Hi, and thanks for responding. How long did you take it and at what dosage? I'm supposed to take it for 5 days, 500 mg per dose. I am less tired tonight, but my leg is killing me. I hope it is just because I haven't really eaten too much and have been taking it easy...but, it is hurting to walk.
867582 tn?1311630997 So I tend to see a lot of patients whose MS begins when they're being prescribed something like Cipro. Is this true for the other floxacins? There are cousins of Cipro that are available, there's oxfloxacin and levofloxacin. We're not sure yet, but if I had MS I'd avoid any drug that had the word floxacin in it." The interferons that are part of the disease modifying drugs (DMD) are Alpha interferons (if I remember correctly) not gamma interferons.
Avatar m tn So its been about 30 hours since the last Cipro dose. If it was indeed a Cipro allergy, how long before it should go away?
443434 tn?1255894833 I was given Cipro for a simple UTI, I was 36 years old. I was dizzy for three and half weeks, vertigo, nausea, then the ear pressure, spots in left eye, flashes in left eye, short term memory loss, horrible dreams, weak wrists and knees, massive floaters headaches, ears ringing, dry eyes, itching all over, rashes, insomnia, dark spots in left eye, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitive to sound, vitreous detachment happened in left eye and now happening with the right eye.
Avatar m tn The doctor didn't seem like the outcome would be good. Is 2 weeks enough? Is there a better drug? What about semen culture. Can this be helpful? thanks.
548956 tn?1215477667 They also precribed me doxycline tablets, which has to be consumed twice a day. How long does it take for the bacteria to clear up fully in my system? Is it normal for me to experience a low sex drive. I haven't been able to get a fully erected penis for awhile now, since i felt discomfort while i urinate. Is this normal? I'm pretty worried about it.
Avatar n tn Have a I taken enough of these drugs to kill both bacterial infections, and if so, how long should it take to clear up an infection if I do indeed have one?
Avatar n tn Cipro is a very strong drug. It has cured millions of people for many years. It was a blockbuster for many years.
Avatar n tn You should be seeing a marked improvement by now, and if cipro is going to work, you only need 1 dose of 500 mg. Were you tested for gonorrhea, or is this a diagnosis made by symptoms? I ask because if you didn't have a positive test, this might not be gonorrhea.
Avatar m tn I work, have a great lady, take care of my kids but don't know how long I can pretend everything is OK. It is not. I need help. Guilt is there but I dealt with that along time ago. 20 years and two partners of than my ex wife. Oh ya. Back when things were good with marriage I thought... ex got early one Saturday morning and came back with Doxy for 14 days prescribed by an unknown doctor. Could Clamydia/Gonn stay with a person this long without being detected???
Avatar m tn Again, blood and urine, now about 5 weeks after, again all negative. Was put on Cipro for ten days, along with Flomax. After 10 days, still have same symptom of needing to urinate. Sent to Urologist. After his exam, he got fluid to excrete from my penis with anal exam, culture showed resistance to Cipro. He gave me Bactrim, which I have been on since July 6th. This is the 17th, and the symptom still has not gone away.
Avatar f tn Hello, Macrobid is nitrofurantoin and is a good medicine for UTI. It will not predispose you to yeast infections but it can cause antibiotic induced diarrhea. It works by interfering with various chemical processes in the bacteria, which results in the death of the bacteria. Since you have started taking it recently so it will take a few days to start its action.
Avatar m tn And over the next several days the symptoms continued to dissipate. Today is day 29, I've been off the Cipro for 3 days now. There is still the occasional itching/tingling in the head of the penis, but it seems to be going away too (I'm thinking part of this may be anxiety). The lymph node feels like the swelling is all gone. My other set of symptoms was that on day 15, one of my eyes begin to turn reddish.
Avatar m tn 1. Is that blog correct? How long does it actually take to become non-contagious 2.
Avatar f tn I expected this and was prepared for it, and the stinging is not unbearable, but it is unpleasant. How long is that supposed to last? The urologist made it sound like it wouldn't be that big a deal and that burning urination would be normal. I am not taking any medication for it, just trying to drink plenty of water. I assume it will all return to normal down there sometime this weekend . . . .
1116669 tn?1269146866 48 weeks is a long haul. That must be a very good feeling. It will take time for your blood levels to return to pre-treatment levels. Being cirrhotic will also impact what are "normal" levels for you. But pre-treatment levels should give you a good idea of the levels your future labs will return to over time. Hemoglobin = 10.6 Anemia is defined as a hemoglobin level < 10 g/dL.
Avatar f tn Still no fever, no bowel movements, less urination, just strong discomfort in abdomen and nauseated with NO appetite at all. Any ideas on why it's taking me so long to recuperate? Is this normal? Any help would greatly be appreciated as I am ready to get back to my life as a devoted mother and teacher!
Avatar m tn My girfriend has had 2 uti's in 3 months. She was given an antibiotic (not sure what) for the first, then Cipro for the second. She has never had any liasons like herpes, unusual discharges, abmormal smell etc. She has regular ob/gyn visits. With this hx, what are your thoughts of either of us having a std or just my insecure imagination worrying about way to much? Could she have had vaginitis, causing her severe irritation 3 years ago?
5264083 tn?1404669334 I know many women have experienced late periods from antibiotics. I'm hoping that someone can tell me their experiences, and how long it took for their period to come.
Avatar n tn And as far as the fiber goes, thanks for the idea but many things that have fiber or contain fiber give me terrible diarrhea or it doesn't stay in for any length of time but I will try oatmeal I haven't tried that yet, at this point anything that works would make me ecstatic! What I want to know is just how long does it take for them to figure out just what is going on with us? 5 trips to the er since April and 5 different diagnosis, none of them match.
Avatar f tn I also will get one 'hive' if elastic is rubbing on my skin or a tag on a shirt is hard or poking me. I have anxiety quite bad at times and take Klonopin for that. Yesterday only took it at 6 a.m. until I panicked after reading about Klebsiella. Yesterday my urine culture came back with a small amount of Klebsiella and doctor ordered Cipro. I'm allergic to Sulfa drugs. Less than one hour later I had an itch spot (small hive) on either side of my face/ jawline. Yes, I was touching my face.
Avatar m tn At this point I'm really worried it's something else causing this. After a good 10 hour sleep I will feel okay but that only lasts for maybe 4 hours and then the pains come back. By the time I hit the sack at night my lower back and side are hurting so bad I'm just about ready to go to the ER. Can this be caused by my spleen? I'm unsure what to do at this point. It's to the point where I am working remote from home pretty much everyday now and resting in between tasks.
Avatar f tn 1998 started bleeding all the time with bladder infections. One would end another started, Put me on cipro for over a year. Don't think that was so safe considering the antibiotic problems today. Went on cranberry juice which helped significantly. Was able to come off meds in time. 1999 Still on going with therapy I wound up with a really violent man.
Avatar m tn Ive also been experiencing intense pain both at the head and base of my penis every time i start to get an erection, which is mostly just causing problems because i wake up 5 times a night in pain. My question is how long should I wait before I can safely assume the cipro didn't take and go in to get the injection?
1655526 tn?1330659229 That makes sense. Let your heart rest by getting plenty of rest and stay hydrated. I'll be praying for you.
