Question about Antibiotic

Maybe Shirley can answer my question. I've been sick, and today went to the doctor. I have a urinary tract infection that has spread to other areas. I was given Cipro. Is that on the list of dangerous drugs that I read on the bb?

Hi Evelyn,
I've been trying to pull up the website for that information. I printed out a copy some time back (March 2001) and it does not appear to be on that list anywhere. I have been unable to get to that website this morning.
The link to the information is below.

Another thing to remember about Cipro is that it should be taken 2 hours before a meal or 2 hours after a meal on an empty stomach. When I worked in the hospital, we usually gave Cipro twice a day, once at 10am and then at 8pm.

Hope that this helps. Check with your pharmacist or doctor about taking it on an empty stomach if they told you differently.

Thanks, Shirley. The doctor didn't say anything about not taking the Cipro with food. I took the first one without food, but this morning took it just before breakfast. I will remember to take it at a different time from now on.
The website wouldn't come up for me either. I printed off the information when it was on the bb before, now it's just a matter of finding it.
Thanks again.
Evelyn

Hi Evelyn, When you take an antibiotic does it affect your BEB? I haven't found one that I can take that dosen't make my BEB a lot worse.
I've only talked to one other person who had that happen. I won't take them until I have too.
