Make sure you're aware of the side-effects. Sure it's effective but it's chemo and the side-effects are devastating if you happen to be within the 1% of the population that react very badly to it. Just to make sure you know what I'm saying, let me tell you that this drug can cripple you.

I have been waking up with no problems,with my Throat but after being up for a couple hours it feels sore and looks red. Saw my dr. Yesterday, and he gave me a rx for Amoxocillin. Forgot to tell him the last time I took it 5 years, ago I developed a rash. I have Cipro. Took one and plan on taking it until I can reach him on Monday. Am hoping it works. Never had a throat issue that would come and go. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

Always always always finish your antibiotics whether you have pain or not! Or whether you think you are well enough to stop taking it or not! The antibiotics will kill the pain first and then work on the infection the rest of the time. If you don't the antibiotics for all of the days prescribed then theinfection will most definitely come back stronger and more resistant to the antibiotic that you did not finish!!! It's very important to finish all antibiotics when prescribed !

Never use Cipro as a 'preventative' for anything. I'm not sure why many of you are asking about whether you can use Cipro for certain problems. Unless you have gone to your doctor, had it determined that you ACTUALLY have an active bacterial infection confirmed by culture, and your doctor gave you a prescription, then you should never take an antibiotic at all!

These are not Tylenol, you don't simply take some random antibiotic you have left over in your cabinet because you feel bad. And Cipro is one of the most dangerous. YOu can end up disabled for life because you took this antibiotic when you didnt' have an infection. And you could damage a child's growth plates if you give this to them!

Never take an antibiotic without a confirmed bacterial infection and a prescription. Please read some of the horror stories about Cipro all over the internet before you take this drug. EVEN IF your doctor gives you a prescription for this drug, you should ask him if there are ANY alternatives. Not BETTER alternatives, but ANY alternatives at all. These drugs are unsafe and should be used as a last resort for only life threatening infections for which there are no alternatives.

PLease read this site and educate yourself on the horrors that are the Fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

No, antibiotics that are lying around your house should not be taken for ANY reason and should be thrown out. You don't take antibiotics to 'prevent' anything except, possibly, surgical infections under the guidance of your surgeon. You should NEVER EVER EVER take antibiotics without a confirmed diagnosis of a bacterial infection under the guidance of a doctor.

If his doctor prescribed it why come on the internet and ask? Do you trust strangers more than your doctor? If so....get with a doctor you trust....doctors go to school many years to learn how to treat illnesses. They prescri;e with that knowledge. Looking up information on medication is always a good idea. However if you have leftover antibiotics and just want to try them on your son. .not a good idea, this is part of the problem and misuse of antibiotics. First you didn't take the prescription as ordered and put yourself at risk and potentially vulnerable the next time you need antibiotics and second place your son at risk for the same by using an antibiotic that is not a full course. Rebound illnesses can mutate causing the antibiotics to no longer work effectively needing another antibiotics..and so on and so on...til none work.

Actually that's levequin that can cause tendon rupture not cipro and it usually only affects the older community.
