How long does cipro (ciprofloxacin) stay in your system after you've stopped taking it? I have a UTI and only one pill left but I'm not better.

Maybe resistent germ: If you are on your last pill of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and symptoms haven't improved, your infection may be resistant to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and related antibiotics. The doc who rx'ed the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may have sent a culture test to the lab, which can tell what other antibiotics would work best. Call that dr's office and they should be able to prescribe something else if necessary. ...Read more

Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?

Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?

Why do you ask?: Your doctor must have told you not to drink while you're taking flagyl. It's quite dangerous. And while you're on "Cipro", both alcohol and caffeine are best avoided. They won't actually raise the level. If you failed a breathalyzer, you need both a good lawyer and an eagerness to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Best wishes. ...Read more

I'm taking Ciprofloxacin 500 mg, is it okay to smoke weed? I took one yesterday and smoked but I read that these pills are bad for the nervous system

Wrong Question: Weed is bad for the nervous system, the brain, etc. As you can tell I'm not a proponent of its supposed medical uses. Take your medication, lay of the weed, once you are off your Cipro (ciprofloxacin) then do what you want. Dr. Google is not ever a good source of medical information. ...Read more

How long does it take for ciprofloxacin to get out if your stdtem?

Couple of days: After one dose, the majority of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) would be removed from the body after about 24 hours. If the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) has been taken twice a day, it will take a couple of days. The "half life" of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is about 4 hours, meaning that half of the drug is gone after 4 hours, then half again is gone after another 4 hours, etc. This is different if a person has kidney disease, then it takes much longer. ...Read more

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.

Now: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Bactrim are both anti-biotics. They could potentially be taken at the same time. Why 1 bactrim?

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

I have taken last night my last ciprofloxacin pill. How long should I wait until I can have a beer.

ONE beer???: If it's really one beer, pretty much anytime. Would like to know what kind of infection you were being treated for, though. Alcohol is generally not a good thing to consume (especially in larger quantities) when a person has an infection, since it has negative effects of white blood cell activity and production of antibodies. True social drinking (2 or fewer drinks per day in young men) is ok. ...Read more

I'm on cipro, (ciprofloxacin) and it said to not take calcium with it. How long after I take it can I have calcium? Thanks
