More Likely Prednisone Or Cipro Cause Diarreah
I had an allergic reaction to cipro (ciprofloxacin) and was prescribed to take prednisone 20mg two tablets daily. How long till it clears my body?
Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more

Went to er/ bad stomach cramping (like contractions / not preg) and diarrhea that was that was mucousy & maybe bloody. Wbc (19000) and stool shows white blood cells. Cipro (ciprofloxacin)? Can't this cause c-diff?
Sometimes: Diarrhea has many causes. If your doctor has determined that you need antibiotics to treat your particular case, you should take medication as prescribed. If you are concerned about c-diff call your doc. All antibiotics put you at risk for c. Difficile colitis (usually manifested as bloody diarrhea with cramps) doctors are careful to prescribe antibiotics for diarrhea only when needed. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed with Diverticulitis. How do I stop the diarrhea? Currently taking Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Flagyl.
Be careful!!!: Diarrhea usually IS NOT part of the symptom complex of diverticulitis. How was your case diagnosed? Did you have a CT scan. And even if you did colitis, which is just a general term for inflamed colon, can look like diverticulitis but it would more commonly cause diarrhea. If diarrhea started after taking antibiotics you could have C diff colitis which requires stool culture and can be serious ...Read more
Prednisone took away my chronic diarrhea problem, but then it returned 2 days later. Does that mean I have inflammation? Why did it fix my problem?
I was prescribed Adco-amoxyclav, Betamox 500mg and Prednisone 5. Can I finish one of these and then the other one once I'm done. I'm struggling with Diarrhea with all of them together.
Call your doctor: Both the Adco-amoxyclav and the Betamox contain amoxicillin. I am not sure why you are on both at the same time, unless there was a need to increase your dose of amoxicillin above the amount in the adco-amoxyclav. Call your prescriber to find out what you can do to alleviate the diarrhea. Taking them separately for a longer period of time will not likely help. ...Read more
What does it mean when you have bloody diarrhea? I think is a side effect from prednisone, what should I do?
See a doctor: A gastrointestinal bleed caused by steroid induced ulcers should not cause overt blood or bloody diarrhea unless the bleeding is major. Bloody diarrhea can occur from infections in the intestines such as e. Coli, shigella, salmonella, amebiasis and others. Some of these are more frequent or severe with the immunosuppressive qualities of steroids. ...Read more
