Not contraindicated: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is not contraindicated in people taking bupropion. The recommendation is to 'use caution' because of an increased risk of seizures, but if you don't already have a seizure disorder, that's unlikely to be a problem. Talk to your doctor.

Urine culture: You need to get a urine culture done to find out what antibiotic the bacteria that are causing your infection are sensitive to. The doc can then figure out which antibiotic would be the best choice.
