Dad 80 y, BP swings from 97/56 to 155/87 over successive days about 3 times a month. Otherwise BP is normal. Daily 5mg Cilindipline. No sympts. Takes daily walks & uses exercise bike. On an antibiotic for UTI 2 wks ago. Serious heart problems?
Good BP!: These are fine BPs for an 80 year old! The main possible risk is that 97/56 is on the low side and could make him light headed if it drops quickly. But a few times probably is harmless, and certainly 155/87 from time to time also is just fine. To be completely safe, he should check with his doctor about it. But most likely all is well. ...Read more

If you are still taking antibiotics, you may need to repeat the Diflucan (fluconazole) after completing the course of antibiotics. ...Read more
Can I drink alcohol while taking Nitrofurantoin 100mg for a UTI? I wanna drink this weekend and my last day to take this antibiotic is Saturday.
No contraindication: However, since alcohol use may be associated with sexual disinhibition, and "athletic" or vigorous sexual activity is associated with UTI's in women, would exercise caution on that front. Alcohol does reduce our body's immune response to infections, and does have some interactions with some antibiotics (taking it with Flagyl can be dangerous), there is no problem with nitrofurantoin. ...Read more
