11month long epididymo-prostatitis, prescribed ciprofloxacin 6 week course. Pain usually comes back 3 hours after taking - cause for higher dosage?

Need to reassess...: Your clinical resistance to respond to antibiotic use deserves reassessing clinical accuracy in dx. To do so, collect the features, degree, and progress of the symptoms with their detailed sequence of event, and bring those to doc for review, analysis, more hx, physicals, and tests as needed so to deduce a more reasonable DX for proposing more pertinent rx.

What is the cause for strep uti? Treated with cipro (ciprofloxacin) and it came back. Is amoxicillin a good choice and what is the usual dosage for strep uti?

What is the cause for strep uti? Treated with cipro (ciprofloxacin) and it came back. Is amoxicillin a good choice and what is the usual dosage for strep uti?

Yes: Streptococcal bacteria can be "normal" flora in the vagina or rectum/gi tract but if they get into the bladder, they can cause problems/utis. Amoxicillin may have better activity against streptococcal bacteria than cipro, (ciprofloxacin) but it depends on the sensitivity. A typical dose is 500mg taken every 8 hours for 3-7days depending on the severity of the infection (eg if kidney involvement is present/suspec. ...Read more

Ciprofloxacin for a uti? If so, what dose and for how long? Thanks in advance

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) helps UTIs: The question is however "what type" of urinary infection because the urinary tract divides up into different compartments. If it's a simple female cystitis, usually 3 days of treatment is enough at standard dosing (500mg BID for an adult). If it's a male UTI- longer. If kidney is involved, prostate or other organs u really need a doc. Cultures help too since Cipro (ciprofloxacin) has lost some effectiveness. ...Read more
