I m continung pregnancy for last 1 month; but I have taken tab. Ciprofloxacin for 6 days 2 weeks back. Should I continue pregnancy now?
You can: Ciprofloxacin has a category B3 and has not been shown to cause deformities in animal studies on fetuses. If you want to keep the baby, the chances are that all is fine with the baby!
I'm 10 weeks pregnant just got my results, I have urinary infection so im taking ciprofloxacin tabs wanted to find out if they safe for my pregnancy?
Ciprofloxacin: Ciprofloxacin has a half life of 4 hours so it should be out of your system in about 20 hours after the last dose.
Fine: There shouldn't be any problem so long as you're taking the whole dose. Pills are usually ok to crush or chew. However, you don't want to open capsules which are designated as 'extended release' since this ruins the effect.See 1 more doctor answer
Ciprofloxacin: …is one of the fluoroquinolone family of antibiotics; it is used to treat a variety of infections (uti's, prostatitis, acute bronchitis flares, etc) and to prevent others (traveler's diarrhea, anthrax). Cautions: not for first-line use in under 17 due to effects on cartilage/bone growth; may weaken inflamed tendons; can cause phototoxic reactions.
Sure: You can do almost anything. The question is why? Talking to the provider who prescribed a certain dose and dosing regiment is wise before you yourself start altering it.....
3 days: Check out http://www. Aafp. Org/afp/2011/1001/p771.html for the definition of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI) and various antibiotic regimens.

For the past couple of days I have been taking 500mg of ciprofloxacin twice a day and now I'm starting to get agiititated with people really easy?
Stop: Stop taking the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and see your doctor.
Yes: Ciprofloxacin 500mg can be used as a single dose regimen for the treatment of uncomplicated gonococcal infections. The bacteria however have been becoming more resistant to previously used antibiotics. Be sure to take your medication as prescribed and follow-up as indicated. If your infection is not resolved, you may need a medication change.
Not recommended: Marijuana affects the brain, and ciprofloxacin also can cause certain CNS (central nervous system) side effects too. So the combination is not recommended because of the increased chance of an adverse effect. That being said, any effect in a young person would probably be mild. Definitely the elderly are more at risk. Smoking weed may expose you to combustion products in the lungs- that's not good
If no expity date?: If no expiry date it is better not to take it. But you can call the pharmacist who filled the presctription if possible my advice is never use left over antibiotics unless there is expiry date on the label. Different batches have different expiry date and shelf life depends on the manufacturing date.
Antibiotic: It is used to treat many different types of infections.See 2 more doctor answers
