Burning mouth syndrome wrecked my my mouth. Teeth are crumbling and have an infection with pus. Multiple sites. On cipro (ciprofloxacin). Is this an appropriate drug?

Burning mouth syndrome wrecked my my mouth. Teeth are crumbling and have an infection with pus. Multiple sites. On cipro (ciprofloxacin). Is this an appropriate drug?

Burning mouth syndro: Burning mouth syndrome does not cause crumbling teeth or gum infections. Dry mouth due to lack or loss of saliva can cause rampant decay if there is poor oral hygiene. Infections with pus sounds like gum disease, but may be due to a systemic disease. Cipro is not known as a treatment for burning mouth or gum disease. You need to coordinate treatment between your dentist and physician. ...Read more

Swollen tonsils, 2nd day taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) , tonsils still swollen, same size. Was i prescribed the correct meds? What should I do next?

Antibiotics: Take 48 hours to take effect. We always give what we feel is the best for certain conditions. We don't always do culture as if we wait for culture to guide us, it may be too late to give treatment. If after 2 days, the problem being treated is still there, the antibiotics may not be the best for your individual condition even it ok for others, then go back to md for reevaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Cipro side effect?: Tendon rupture in the head and neck area associated with Ciprofloxacin would be highly unusual, but possible. Please see your primary doctor for MRI/CT studies if indicated by exam and referrals. Your problem could allow an academically-minded physician to publish.

Sinus Inflammation with no nasal congestion or cough. On Cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500 mg twice since 3 days. Headache on top of head and side no relief. What next?

CT scan?: One needs to ascertain whether the sinus is the cause for your symptoms and a CT scan may be helpful if you still have no response from Cipro (ciprofloxacin) in another 24 hrs. Besides sinusitis, uncontrolled GERD can also be a cause for your cough but not headaches. It has been suggested also that GERD may increase the risk in sinusitis. See ENT if needed. ...Read more
