Cipro belongs to a class of potent antibiotics called quinolones. These drugs have become quite popular in recent years because they can help cure a wide variety of infections. Side effects are uncommon and bacteria appear slower to develop resistance to such medications. Cipro is especially useful against hard-to-treat infections that affect the lungs, urinary tract, skin, bones and joints. This antibiotic also works against traveler's diarrhea and other bugs that invade the digestive tract. Side Effects and Interactions Cipro may cause lightheadedness. Do not drive or attempt any activity that requires coordination and judgment if you become impaired. Some people report restlessness, insomnia, nightmares, dizziness, tremor, headache, or irritability while taking this medicine. Such symptoms can be made worse by coffee or the asthma medicine theophylline. Cipro affects the liver and may allow caffeine and theophylline to build up to toxic levels in the body. Because Cipro may cause digestive tract upset, nausea, pain or diarrhea, you may be tempted to use an antacid. That could be a big mistake. Aluminum or calcium-based products, including Di-Gel, Gaviscon, Maalox, Mylanta, and Tums, can dramatically interfere with the absorption of Cipro. Wait at least two hours after taking Cipro before swallowing an antacid. Vitamin and mineral formulas can also cause problems, so they should not be taken at the same time either. Other side effects are rare, but be alert for changes in vision, rash, sores in the mouth, joint pain or stiffness, chest pain or heart palpitations, urinary changes, or breathing difficulty. Report any symptoms or suspected side effects to your physician promptly. Special Precautions Pregnant women and children should not take Cipro. Others may be allergic to this medication. If you experience symptoms such as breathing difficulty, wheezing, sneezing, hives, or itching, obtain emergency medical attention. Life-threatening anaphylactic shock is rare, but it demands instant treatment. People with kidney disease should take Cipro only under careful medical supervision, as special dosage modifications may have to be made. Liver enzyme elevations have also been noted, so periodic blood tests will be necessary if you have to take this medicine for any length of time. Taking the Medicine Cipro is absorbed more efficiently when it is taken on an empty stomach. The manufacturer recommends that it be swallowed two hours after a meal. If this medicine upsets your stomach, though, it can be swallowed with food without losing potency. If you found this information of interest, you may wish to subscribe to our free online newsletter.

You can take "iron chelaters," which is your magnesum, as long as you seperate it by at least 2 hours from taking your cipro. The Magnesium would bind to the Cipro making it useless otherwise. The B-Supplement has folic acid, which is Iron, so I would seperate it by 2 hours. Answered by Alease Ambrosini 6 months ago.

Has anyone else taken Cipro with no problems? Answered by Duncan Donato 6 months ago.
Cipro can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. Cipro should not be taken with dairy products (such as milk or yogurt) or calcium-fortified juices alone; ... Cipro may be taken with a meal that contains these products. Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication to prevent crystals from forming in your urine. • Avoid caffeine while you are taking Cipro, because the medication can make the effects of caffeine stronger. • Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, sunlamps, or tanning beds. Cipro make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, and a sunburn may result. Wear protective clothing and use a sunscreen if you must be out in the sun. Call your doctor if you have severe burning, redness, itching, rash, or swelling after being in the sun. • Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, call your doctor. Do not use any medicine to stop the diarrhea unless your doctor has told you to. • Cipro can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Cipro is not appropriate for all patients, and a thorough medical evaluation can help alleviate the potential for additional health effects. Patients with a medical history which includes epilepsy or other seizure disorder, joint pain or joint problems, and kidney disease may not be able to take Cipro or may require additional testing and monitoring while taking the medication, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition.

500 mg Cipro, was that to much?
I was prescibed cipro antibiotic and the pills were 2 a day 500 mg each. they were making me sick. so i got a new antibiotic and they were only 100 mg each twice a day. and im only 4'10'' 103 lbs.,was the cipro way to much?
Asked by Ricarda Kosin 6 months ago.
Cipro 500mg twice a day is the standard dose for many different types of infection. (However, there are some milder infections which can be treated with 500mg only ONCE a day.) Its dose is not usually adjusted according to weight. (Some antibiotics, like gentamicin, are dosed by weight.) As for comparing the two antibiotics, you cannot simply compare their mg numbers. Different antibiotics have very different molecular structures, and as a result, 100 mg of drug A will not produce the same effect in the body as 100 mg of drug B. For example, the standard dose for Cipro is 500mg once or twice a day, but the standard dose for doxycycline is 100mg twice a day. It doesn't mean you'll get 5 times the bug-killing with Cipro, or that doxycycline is 5 times "stronger". They are simply different antibiotics, and thus have different doses. Hope you get better soon. Answered by Kristian Counihan 6 months ago.

Is cipro appropriate?
I'v had "the crummys" for almost a week. Cough, snot, the whole bit. No noticable fever. My doc gave me a cipro rx that hasn't helped. I'll finish out the round, but should I go back and ask for a stroger antibiotic, or does this mean that it is a virus and I need to wait it out?
Asked by Hwa Maung 6 months ago.
Cipro's a very powerful antibiotic, though not usually the choice for an upper respiratory infection. It has limited activity against the gram-positive bacteria most commonly involved in such an infection. As noted in the first post, Levaquin, a closely related drug that was designed to have more activity against gram-positive bacteria, would make more sense if someone was going to prescribe a drug in this class (fluoroquinolones). It's probably a virus, and I'd have waited a week or two to see if it went away, or if there was some sign of a bacterial infection, like a fever or green snot or sinus pain. But that's an odd choice of antibiotic. I'm not shocked, like the poster above - my older pharmacology texts indicate Cipro is sometimes effective against such infections; it's just not a first or second or third choice. Answered by Shavonda Lemansky 6 months ago.
Im shocked he gave you Cipro. Cipro is an antibiotic used to treat common infections such as respiratory tract infections, including bronchitis and pneumonia. It is also used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), prostate infections, skin and bone infections and infections of the intestines. With all those listed, none of those sound like what you have. I would call him tomorrow and tell him you dont feel better. He may wanna see you or just simply put you on another antibiotic.

I take that as the fluid moving, but when will it clear up so I can hear clearly again? Should I take a decongestant in addition to absorb it more? Answered by Calista Booser 6 months ago.
Cipro is an extremely powerful medication and should clear the infection fairly quickly. Sometimes, even after the infection is cleared, fluid will persist for quite some time. This can be extremely annoying (I have experienced it) and rarely, you may end up having to have it drained. But it's much too early to worry about that yet. I just want to add a warning about Cipro. It is in the class of antibiotics called Quinolones. They are very effective, but are very toxic to some people and have caused a host of serious complications. If you begin experiencing any joint, tendon or muscle pain - any cardiac irregularities, signs of nervous stimulation such as panic attacks - stop taking it immediately and call your doctor ASAP. Good luck, hope you feel better soon. Also, Cipro frequently causes a false positive to opiates on a drug screen - something you might need to know if you work in a career that requires such.

If you are taking cipro HCL, it is the best thing you can take for infected ears! Continue to take it, as long as directed, and DO NOT bring another medication of any kind into the picture without asking your pharmacist, or your doctor if one will react to the other in a negative way! The length of time will depend upon your own body, and how well you take your prescribed Cipro. Answered by Alexa Kuban 6 months ago.
Takes a few days if it's bacterial. Be sure to finish the medicine as directed, even if you feel better, or it will come back. If the infection is viral, the Cipro won't cure it, but is just a precaution. Then count on 10 days to 2 weeks for your own defenses to overwhelm the virus. Ask your doctor, but a decongestant often helps. Answered by Ling Butkus 6 months ago.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Aurelio Remiszewski 6 months ago.
Cipro is of course an antibiotic. It is commonly prescribed for UTI's. It would not HURT bronchitis, but it may not be the BEST choice for it either (may not completely help, etc.) While many respiratory afflictions are viral in nature, bronchitis is often a bacterial infection and antibiotics are commonly (almost routinely) prescribed for this. As the other have said, don't take a partial prescription of antibiotics if you have one lying around (which you shouldn't -- always take the entire course!!) Antbiotics work by eliminating the bacteria affecting you. As is the natural way, the stronger bacteria can survive the first couple days of treatment whereas the weaker bacteria are killed off right away. By only taking the first couple days of an antibiotic prescription you will be killing off the weakest bacteria while not only leaving the stronger bacteria to survive and be passed on, but also to strengthen even more by surviving antibiotics. This is why resistant bacteria exists. Sorry for the long answer, but it was a good opportunity to educate others! lol! Answered by Piedad Medill 6 months ago.

Cipro is an antibiotic as you probably know. Most bronchitis is of viral origin, which means antibiotics usually don't do any good. The exception would be influenza, which can be treated with antiviral medications like Tamiflu. Your best bet is to see a doctor. If you have left over antibiotics, make sure they are not expired. I wouldn't use them without checking with your doctor. Antibiotics like all medication can have side effects. Answered by Lorina Stanert 6 months ago.
Yes. It is a cousin to Levaquin, which is routinely Rx. for Bronchitis. However, as a caution...Dont take a partial Rx. to treat. If you have "extra" from an incomplete previous treatment, it is dangerous to do this. See your doctor for a new rx. Good Luck!! Answered by Jene Janick 6 months ago.

Asked by Cleopatra Dezern 6 months ago.
Cipro is very good for any kind of bacterial infection such as sore throat as long as the infection is caused by bacteria. If it's a sore throat caused by a virus such as a cold then Cipro will not help it. Any viral infection cannot be treated with antibiotics as there is no cure for viruses of any kind. You should be looked at by a doctor to determine if your sore throat is bacterial or viral. Also you should be fairly sure that you are not allergic to Cipro before taking it.

Cipro is a broad spectrum antibiotic that's often prescribed for things like a UTI. If you want the infection gone then you need to take the Cipro that's really all there is to it. As far as drinking you really should never mix alcohol and drugs. Now lets talk about something even more important what will happen if you don't take the Cipro well that simple easy to cure UTI becomes pyelonephritis or even worse develops into urosepsis trust me you don't want either of those so just take the Cipro your immune response will be fine.

I take Cipro every time I have a UTI with no ill effects. I can't take the more usually prescribed Macrobid because I'm sensitive to it. I've never had problems mixing this with alcohol, and I've never gotten another illness after taking it. Do remember to take the full course of the antibiotic.
