The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Need urine culture: Plus sensitivities will identify the organism responsible for the bladder infection. You might then be able to use a second line antibiotic as you can't use 3 most frquently prescribed meds. You might respond to a tetracycline, augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) amoxicillin, zithromax, suprax etc. ...Read more

I am two days late but I am taking bactrim (for cellulitis) and cipro (ciprofloxacin) (for bladder infection). I took a test but it was negative. ?

Pregnancy?: First, if you are taking Bactrim you probably do not need to be on Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin unless you had a urine culture showing an organism resistant to the bactrim. Secondly, you do not want to be on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) if pregnant. There are no immediate known contraindications to Bactrim for pregnant humans in the first trimester.

Is it okay to crush cipro (ciprofloxacin) since I have difficulty swallowing? Will it still be effective to treat my bladder infection?

It's okay, but…: Be sure not to crush the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) XR tablets. If it is plain Cipro (ciprofloxacin), it will not hurt anything. I would not take it with grapefruit juice or milk. In the future, if you let your doctor or pharmacist know that you have trouble swallowing pills, they could give you the suspension instead, which would probably be easier for you to take. Good luck. ...Read more
