Resistant bug?: Suggest you finish current course of anti-biotics.Resistant organisms can be dealt with by,in your case(as it is helping) ,extending cipro(as symptoms going away) or by doing a urine culture,microscopy and sensitivity test to identify most appropriate anti-biotic to use.In the mean time,lots of clear fluids to assist with flushing.Avoid holding urine in.
