I took vitamin d with cipro?
Im 17 and Ive been taking cipro for a UTI and this is my last day taking it. But for the past two days and this morning I took vitamin d right with the cipro because nobody told me about this! Could I die? Get cancer? Now I'm really afraid! Asked by Terrance Weinreich 1 year ago.

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 1 year ago.

I have bronchitis and my dr prescribed Cipro - 500mg 2x daily for 10 days. I am having skipped heartbeats at night when I lay down and the meds are just making me feel crappy. Called the dr and he said the skipped heartbeats are because it's a strong antibiotic and it's fine - keep taking it. The side effects list is a mile long and includes some VERY scary things. Has anyone else taken Cipro with no problems? Answered by Duncan Donato 1 year 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. Answered by Adelle Voegeli 1 year ago.

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 1 year 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 1 year ago.

If any person taking heavy dosage (high mg medicine like 500mg) they really need to drink atleast 4 litres of water and eat good nutritional food(protein, vitamins, minerals,etc.). Answered by Margarite Dajer 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 started taking 500mg Cipro 2x daily yesterday, so it has not been 48 hours yet. Fever gone, but the throbbing ear pain has turned into a sometimes sudden stabbing pain, & more popping. 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 1 year 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.

I have a son, Joey Niceforo, who is a young 27 year old tenor, with a group called "DESTINO" recording in Vancouver Bc, Canada. For the last few weeks Joey has had a cold. Just a few days ago he developed an ear ache, a swollen ear and loss of hearing. He was diagnosed with serous otitis media (middle ear infection). The major concern we have is that Joey and the Group DESTINO have been booked to open the Marie Osmond show in Disney World on April 3, Have a quick remedy for our son?? Joey's ear got better just before flying. He also got the special ear plugs for flying, and arrived in Florida, from Vancouver, on April 1st. On April 2nd he told us the ear was almost 100 percent, and he will, with the other, great DESTINO tenors be performing, in the COLORADO BALL ROOM DISNEY WORLD tonight at 7 pm. This help was so effective, and helpful, to our young Canadian tenor, Joey Niceforo. I'm sure this input and therapy advice will, and has helped others. Answered by Branden Nee 1 year ago.

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 1 year 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 1 year ago.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Aurelio Remiszewski 1 year 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 1 year ago.

This Site Might Help You. RE: Will Cipro treat bronchitis? Answered by Earlean Sledz 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago.


Is cipro ok to take for a sore throat?
is it ok to take cipro for a sore throat Asked by Cleopatra Dezern 1 year 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. Hope you feel better soon. Answered by Mitchel Rodgers 1 year ago.

In fact, I NEVER take any antibiotics, I always look for natural remedies. But this isn't clearing up with any of the herbs I've been taking. I'm scared to take this drug, as it seems to have a lot of side-effects, and it must be taken for 10 days. New Years is just a day away and I'm not sure if I wil even be able to consume alcohol while taking this prescription. I also hear that taking this antibiotic (which is very strong) will harm my bodies immune system and I certainly do not want to do that at the start of the winter. Please help. Answered by Monroe Sathiraboot 1 year ago.

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. Answered by Rebecka Hammers 1 year ago.

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. You might be particularly tempted to stop taking it once you start feeling better. Don't. Take the full 10 days, and stay well. Happy New Year! Answered by Julio Musulin 1 year ago.

I have taken Cipro for a UTI before and did not have any problems on it, nor did I catch any colds or anything afterwards. Remember, most side effects are listed as a precaution and it does not mean they will occur with you; I suffered no ill side effects, and all the vitamin C I was ingesting through juice used to help combat the pain of a UTI meant I stayed nice and healthy.

I took vitamin d with cipro?
Im 17 and Ive been taking cipro for a UTI and this is my last day taking it. But for the past two days and this morning I took vitamin d right with the cipro because nobody told me about this! Could I die? Get cancer? Now I'm really afraid! Asked by Mitchell Smedsrud 1 year ago.

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.

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 Arianna Ruffer 1 year 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.

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 Linh Pereyra 1 year 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 Ilda Barno 1 year 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.

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 Jeana Haberkamp 1 year 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 Christopher Degross 1 year 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.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Ellie Cranfill 1 year 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 Karoline Winson 1 year 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 Della Lint 1 year 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.

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 Myra Siracuse 1 year 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.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Lanelle Rakestrow 1 year 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 Brenna Heinlen 1 year ago.

Cipro is very good for any kind of bacterial infection such as sore throat as long as the infection is caused by bacteria.

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.

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.

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.

Has anyone else taken Cipro with no problems? Answered by Jesusita Mego 1 year 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 Faustino Swartout 1 year 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 Rikki Meuller 1 year ago.

I took vitamin d with cipro?
Im 17 and Ive been taking cipro for a UTI and this is my last day taking it. But for the past two days and this morning I took vitamin d right with the cipro because nobody told me about this! Could I die? Get cancer? Now I'm really afraid! Asked by Lori Messner 1 year ago.

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.

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 Augustine Piepho 1 year 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.

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 Tera Mansir 1 year 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.

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 Alysa Dunneback 1 year 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 Lawana Card 1 year 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.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Kyung Olgvin 1 year 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 Len Hennessey 1 year 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 Waltraud Heeth 1 year 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.

Is cipro ok to take for a sore throat?
is it ok to take cipro for a sore throat Asked by Silas Lota 1 year 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 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 Mana Penta 1 year 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.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Annis Golom 1 year 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 Wilma Limauro 1 year ago.

is it ok to take cipro for a sore throat Asked by Mei Gilani 1 year 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.

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.

Im 17 and Ive been taking cipro for a UTI and this is my last day taking it. But for the past two days and this morning I took vitamin d right with the cipro because nobody told me about this! Could I die? Get cancer? Now I'm really afraid! Asked by Laverna Rasulo 1 year ago.

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.

Has anyone else taken Cipro with no problems? Answered by Glenn Greenwell 1 year 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 Wynona Whipple 1 year 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 Shery Gloden 1 year 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 Ellie Malboeuf 1 year 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 Nguyet Macklem 1 year 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.

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.

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 Wilson Hellmuth 1 year 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.

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 Latia Carranzo 1 year 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.

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 Marco Handshaw 1 year 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.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Mattie Lassa 1 year 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 Delta Valladolid 1 year ago.

Cipro is an antibiotic as you probably know. Most bronchitis is of viral origin, which means antibiotics usually don't do any good.

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 Jazmine Buddle 1 year ago.


Is cipro ok to take for a sore throat?
is it ok to take cipro for a sore throat Asked by Elenora Spicuzza 1 year 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.

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.

Just a few days ago he developed an ear ache, a swollen ear and loss of hearing. He was diagnosed with serous otitis media (middle ear infection). The major concern we have is that Joey and the Group DESTINO have been booked to open the Marie Osmond show in Disney World on April 3, Have a quick remedy for our son?? Joey's ear got better just before flying. He also got the special ear plugs for flying, and arrived in Florida, from Vancouver, on April 1st. On April 2nd he told us the ear was almost 100 percent, and he will, with the other, great DESTINO tenors be performing, in the COLORADO BALL ROOM DISNEY WORLD tonight at 7 pm. This help was so effective, and helpful, to our young Canadian tenor, Joey Niceforo. I'm sure this input and therapy advice will, and has helped others. Answered by Micah Granzin 1 year ago.

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 Cythia Deguise 1 year 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 Liza Swailes 1 year ago.

Will Cipro treat bronchitis?
Asked by Jannette Elkington 1 year 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 Bradford Hawkey 1 year ago.

This Site Might Help You. RE: Will Cipro treat bronchitis? Answered by Gaylord Linnane 1 year 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 Francisco Radwan 1 year 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 Brady Fucillo 1 year ago.


Is cipro ok to take for a sore throat?
is it ok to take cipro for a sore throat Asked by Germaine Arrance 1 year 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. Hope you feel better soon. Answered by Keven Vincente 1 year ago.

cipro is take nfor bacterial infections.. if u have a sore throat causeed by bacteria, i.e strp, you should be alright, but you need therapy tx not just one pill.. if it is raw or irrtated by sinus, your not doing anything helpful by taking it.. to treat a sore throat, hop on one foot, pat your head while gurgling row row row your boat with warm salt water... shazam Answered by Ellis Harbach 1 year ago.

Yes but you shouldn't take it unless your sore throat has been diagnosed. It may be simply a cold starting. Answered by Shaun Kok 1 year ago.


Has anyone ever had this drug for UTI? CIPRO?
I just got back from the doctor and she said I have a urinary tract infection (UTI). She prescribed me to take Cipro. I have never taken this antiboitic before.

I just got back from the doctor and she said I have a urinary tract infection (UTI). She prescribed me to take Cipro. I have never taken this antiboitic before. In fact, I NEVER take any antibiotics, I always look for natural remedies. But this isn't clearing up with any of the herbs I've been taking. I'm scared to take this drug, as it seems to have a lot of side-effects, and it must be taken for 10 days. New Years is just a day away and I'm not sure if I wil even be able to consume alcohol while taking this prescription. I also hear that taking this antibiotic (which is very strong) will harm my bodies immune system and I certainly do not want to do that at the start of the winter. Please help. Answered by Mindi Jonassen 1 year ago.

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. Answered by Yuri Olufson 1 year ago.

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. You might be particularly tempted to stop taking it once you start feeling better. Don't. Take the full 10 days, and stay well. Happy New Year! Answered by Jack Zulkowski 1 year ago.

I have taken Cipro for a UTI before and did not have any problems on it, nor did I catch any colds or anything afterwards. Remember, most side effects are listed as a precaution and it does not mean they will occur with you; I suffered no ill side effects, and all the vitamin C I was ingesting through juice used to help combat the pain of a UTI meant I stayed nice and healthy.
