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...

pharmakay Says:

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.

For a cough nothing beats prescription cough syrup with codeine, try to stay away from the Antibiotics no matter what kind, while on them your body may kill your cough or strep throat but you build up a tolerance to Antibiotics & Bam all of a sudden they don't work anymore, your body gets immune to Antibiotics & the problem mutates to withstand Antibiotics, that's why Doctors are recommended not to give Antibiotics for minor stuff like a cold or sore throat.. Hope that helps

YOU ARE THE REASON THEIR ARE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT DISEASES THAT ARE KILLING PEOPLE!!!!! Don't you read about this stuff? Use this as a teaching opportunity, tell everyone you know how important it is to complete the course, and why. It doesn't just effect you, it allows the bacteria to mutate so the drug won't work for the next person.

I'm allergic to every antibiotic known to man. I've had a bloody mouth from taking ciprofloaxin, and a hole wants to form in the middle of the bone in the middle of my nose. I have found that taking 2 bendryls About 10 minutes ahead of a ciprofloaxin makes it possible to take this medicine without any side effects, just have to take one while still on the medication period. You will notice drowsiness. I,m taking it for strepthroat now have taken it for urinary tract problems in the past!
