Time to check again: A person who has been on Ciprofloxacin for 5 days for a pelvic infection but has worsening symptoms such a worsening pain generally has to return to her doctor to get rechecked. Questions are why are there worse symptoms? Does the medication need to be changed? Is there a second problem? The ER can help if a patient cannot reach her own doctor.
