Have salmonella for over 2 months now! Got from from Bali. I received IVs and 4 doses switching between Flagel, Arithrimozen, and Cipro. HELP PLEASE!

Maybe not salmonella: Most salmonella clears up within a few weeks, even without treatment. Many cases but not all would respond to ciprofloxacin. Azithromycin and metronidazole (Flagyl) are not active against salmonella. At this point, persistent diarrhea could be an antibiotic side effect or even Clostridium dificile. Return to the doctor treating you; or ask for referral to infectious diseases specialist. Gd luck! ...Read more

Antibiotic allergies: You need the help of an ID doctor-since they are experts in antibiotics.

If ur truly allergic to penicillin, cephalosporins & cipro (ciprofloxacin) which is a fluoroquinolone, ur options are quite limited for oral therapy. Doxycycline might help. ...Read more
