Macrobid and cipro

Common Questions and Answers about Macrobid and cipro


Avatar f tn I am now on a new antibotic called cipro and so far so good. Hopefully it knocks out the infection. Have a wonderful day.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have been prescribed cipro (1 a day for 7 days) for a severe sinus/ear infection. I also have a UTI and hve been prescribed macrobid(2 daily for 7 days). Can I take the two antibiotics at the same time. I was told the UTI wouldn't respond to the cipro so I need to take the macrobid for it. Is it safe to take two antibiotics at once?
Avatar f tn I am a 49 YO woman, diagnosed with UTI one week ago, February 2nd. At the time, macrobid was prescribed. Monday morning the gyn nurse called to say due to culture results, med was being changed to Cipro. 250 mg 2X daily/ 3 days. I am also a brain tumor patient, having had a meningioma successfully resected via craniotomy 5/12/05. Had one "sensory partial seizure" before surgery, one shortly after, none since. No seizure meds since 30 days post-op nearly 2 yrs ago.
Avatar f tn I found out tuesday that i have a pretty horribly UTI after swearing i had a yeast infection. I was put on Macrobid 1 pill twice a day for 7 days. This is day is day 3 of the pills and i was wondering how long until it starts working? i am not in nearly as much pain as I was, but the pain with urination is still there slightly and get worse at night.
Avatar f tn I have some recurring urological problems (prostatitis/epididymitis) and in the past have been prescribed Cipro. I have an appointment with the urologist coming up and am sure I will need another course of Cipro. I hate taking that stuff. Everytime I take it, I feel extremely tired. It is almost to the point that I can't work. Usually better after a week on the meds. Anybody else have that reaction? I guess it is a necessary evil because the urolological problems always get better.
Avatar f tn However, a week ago I came down with a UTI which I have since learned is quite common after vaginal hysterectomies. Went to Dr and they put me on Cipro, hardly any improvement so I went back next day and asked for a culture and sensitivity test. (Why oh why do they not do this in the first place instead of guessing???) The third day still little improvement so they switched me to Microbid.
Avatar n tn I am almost 29 weeks pregnant. For the last 3 OB visits, I've had a trace of blood in my urine. You cannot see it with the naked eye. My doctor told me not to worry about it. They did a bladder infection test & it came back negative. But the trace of blood persists. I met with a nurse practitioner two weeks ago for my last visit. I do not care for her and she is the one who told me that I had HepC & I DID NOT!!!! She did another bladder infection test.
Avatar f tn I have Hashimotos hypothyroid diagnosed 10/05. Take synthroid .125. Before Cipro had been on macrobid for 3 days, culture required change of med. I finished the 3 days of Cipro. 3 nights later 2/11/05 out of nowhere, sharp abdominal pains, burping, cramping, bloating,gas,loose stools 3 times this night. And this has occurred every day or night since,with varying severity. This morning seems a very slight improvement. One bout of urgency/cramping followed by loose stools.
Avatar m tn I was very concerned and called after hours service and dr. on call said stop the Macrobid since Cipro was more effective and stronger. MY QUESTION: is the original prescribing doctor clueless? Am I am over-vigilant and wrong? Should Macrobid be given to someone with 3rd stage kidney disease especially when on a 32 ounce daily liquid limit? Which as I understand it makes the antibiotic ineffective (needing to bind to the protein in the urine).
Avatar m tn I have taken Bactrim, cipro, macrodantin, levaquin, deoxycycline, and now am on macrobid just in case. i will occasionally have UTI symptoms but not all the time. and i constantly have kidney pain and occasional side pain right above my hip. i have also been very tired lately and feel like my muscles are weak. i have been to several doctors and no one can really tell me what is going on my question is can anyone give me an idea? and are there side effects of me being on antibiotics this long?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with an UTI and I was prescribed cipro for 3 days and macrobid for 7 days do I take them together or finish one and then start the other one
Avatar f tn However, a week or 2 later, my frequent urination and irritation came back, and he put me on macrobid. This seemed to work a little for my urethral problems,but it worked A LOT for my testicle, which started to feel a lot better after weeks of pain. However, I finished the meds and still have many symptoms. He has now put me on cipro for 3 WEEKS and has no clue what's wrong dispite bladder utrasounds and scans. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I have been on cipro for a UTI as well as macrobid. I have been on macrobid for 5 days (after the cipro) and my back is still killing me! I don't have much burning or urgency, but my back is what is hurting the worst and I am getting headaches. Went to the doctor again today and we are now trying Augmentin in hopes that will clear it up. Is Augmentin a good antibiotic to help with this? I have never had cipro not work before so this is throwing me for a loop!
Avatar m tn Hello - I saw my GP about a month ago after experiencing burning after urination. He did a urine test suspecting UTI and put me on macrobid(antibiotic) while he waited for the results. A week passed and there was no relief. Went back to GP and he said the results of the urinalysis and urine culture were normal but I told him about that the pain had since intensified.
Avatar n tn I had a full 5 day cycle of Cipro with no change, and 5 day cycle of Macrobid with no change until 10 days past end of both these cycles. I have lost 11 lbs during the illness so far. (not missed on my part btw) I have evaded the fever finally (dropped below 100 during week 3) and have improved about 50% fatigue wise (I am out of bed and back at work, though noticeably more tired and worn out)but I rested 100% for over two weeks. Now I am back at work.
Avatar f tn went to hospital out clinic this morning and very nice MD (they still make them) and he said pus on cells and put me on Cipro and call Friday if not better. Thanks for enouragement guys, you know I hate giving in and going to the docs!
798555 tn?1292791151 Yes, I have taken Cipro this past year more than any person should, but it was for documented --potentially life threatening -- UTI or kidney stone related infections including hydronephrosis. I stay away from any of the fluro's at all cost and beg for an alternative antibiotic because of the warning above. But some of my infections have been so serious there's the risk/benefit.
1123156 tn?1338866969 I was probably misdiagnosed as having a UTI, but that's what it felt like i told the OB all my symptoms, and she gave me Cipro, 2 days after im done taking it I wake up today with a sore tender spot that's bothering me, is this tendinitis.....please anyone experience this before?
Avatar f tn The doc found a uti and rx'd macrobid. Std tests came back negative. Macrobid didn't help and i developed burning with urination...doc gave me cipro. After cipro burning and pelvic pain was worse, so i went to the er. They found cervicitis and swabbed the pus for a std test and rx'd doxycycline for 2 weeks. Std test came back negative. I finished doxy as well as a round of levaquin and STILL have symptoms even tho doc says cervicitis is gone.
Avatar m tn I also got severe peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet after a course of Cipro a few years back. It was hell for a month or so, but it resolved itself. So yes, antibiotics can definitely cause MS like symptoms. I never want to take them again.
Avatar m tn While on Macrobid, my infection seemed to be get worse. Urine sample was positive for bacteria and I was prescribed cipro again to treat the infection while my urine sample was sent off for cultures. My doctor called and said that my infection was resistant to cipro. Now I am back on Macrobid. I don't have any relief from my symptoms. I make sure to drink plenty of fluids and cranberry juice. I take Azo (available over the counter) daily to help manage the pain and discomfort.
Avatar m tn The only other things the e coli is not resistant to are antibiotics administered by IV. I'm thinking of asking my dr to give me more macrobid and I just suffer thru the reaction but I'm worried it might be more severe than just welts, if I keep taking it. What should I do?
Avatar n tn I also get so worked up that if it not a UTI then do I have some awful problem.. I am on Cipro now. I am mid 50's and always worried about something. 18 months ago I had a horrible night of pain in my urithea and I was almost going to go to the hospital and then I took 2 advil and I was fine. I may have passed a small crystal. I did go to the dr and I was on Cirpro bu the test came back negative. I think had an awful odor in my urine and I guess the Cirpro took care of it.
Avatar n tn just yesterday night i was so scared because i had to go pee about every 30 - 60 minutes and it's hella weird. like i go pee and then it's only very little and when i start out peeing it doesn't hurt but then later on it hurts alot. i almost teared up. and the peeing kept me up the whole entire night.
Avatar n tn I have taken 3 days of macrobid and 3 days of cipro and a diflucan and am still burning. It burns right when I start to urinate and then at the end but I do not burn the whole time i am urinating.
Avatar n tn Now I had occasional cloudy smelly urine (maybe once a week if even that) and burning sometimes. She prescribed Cipro for 7 days which helped but I was still having some bladder symptoms. So then she gave me 5 more days of Cipro which again didnt help with the bladder symptoms. In fact the bladder spasms became worse. I read online that Cipro works from the kidney down, so if I had a bladder infection to begin with, is it possible that Cipro didnt get all the bacteria in the bladder?
Avatar m tn Hi , I had(ecoli) infection, UTI last month, i am almost to complete my course of macrobid as cipro didn't work, the UTI symptoms are gone, i have some chest pain, constipation and gastric trouble, 1 hr before i had heart palputation, is this all normal, i have started jogging and exercising from last couple of days to make me fit again, I am male of 25 years and of 65 Kgs.
