when the medicine was prescribed for 1en days and with no refills. The medicine continues its treatment functions beyond the end of prescription. How can I terminate its actions when its treatments seem enough. Thin blood, head spin, etc. bothers me as well as I feel uneasy if its effects my body for ever. Thank You very much.

I had bad sore throat 5 days ago, after taking 2 1/2 days medication , 500 mg Ciprofloxacin every 12 hrs as prescribe, it went away. I think I made a mistake not completing the course.. My infection started again last night, now I'm back again on the medication which can last me another couple of days.... Will it help or should i get more from the local pharmacy.?.. Anyone? Thanks...

Although not helpful to you anymore BenRS, when you initiate taking antibiotics, it is only effective if you take it as presecribed. E.g. Ciprofloxacin 500mg is usually prescribed BID (Twice Daily) with plenty of water while taking this medication, and to be taken usually for 5-7 days. If you had only taken half of what was recommended, then you may have re-attack of infection. The best course of action would be to consult a physician and get a new prescription of possibly an new medication. And this time use it for the whole time period recommended.
