A 25-year-old male asked:
if you vomit 10 minutes after taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) should you eat a little something and then take it again?

Try it....: But don't take it with calcium-containing products-that will impede absorption of the medicine. Otherwise, call your prescriber and see if there is either an alternative medication, or an anti-nausea medication such as odansetron (reglan) can be be prescribed- if taken 30min prior to when you need to take ciprofloxacin, you may be able to take the antibiotic without vomiting.

Probably: Try a few sips of water before trying again.
