Should Fever Persist After Two Days On Cipro
Depends on cause: It depends on why Ciprofloxacin was prescribed and what the fever is like-a persistent high, shaking fever is more worrisome than a few low grade temps within 1st 48 hrs. In general, one's response to antibiotic depends on the nature of the infection (location, severity), age, general health, other factors. If not working, there may be bacterial resistance or a virus.If not better, best to call your pcp. ...Read more
3 rounds of cipro (ciprofloxacin) for UTI post da Vinci hysterectomy, severe groin/flank pain fever and itching is back two days off med. Can this wait a week?
I have a fever, sweats, nightmares and now pain in my side. Though it was the flu. Drenched in sweat and my skin is hot. Doctor? I have had a lingering bladder problem for two months and took cipro two times, but now I just take cranberry pills. Starting
May help: Suggest vitamin c up to 10, 000 mg per day but divide it up. Vitamin c is why cranberry helps. If you get diarrhea on this dose then lower it, diarrhea is a sign that you have little to much of vitamin c. Also you may need another antibiotic but use probiotics to balance your system and avoid getting a yeast infection. ...Read more

I finished 10 days of cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a UTI about a week ago. Now I have fevers nausea and vomiting again. I have +3 leukocytes. Could I have a UTI again?

Could also just be a new infection all together ...Read more

See your surgeon: There are many reasons for post-op fever, but if the Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) took care of it, you probably had some sort of infection.

You may need a different antibiotic, or just a longer course of the cipro (ciprofloxacin). ...Read more

Took cipro (ciprofloxacin) and now on amoxicillin for kidney infection. Not better no high fever. What is usually next step when 2 oral antibiotics fail?
See answer: Two important things. 1) repeat urinalysis and urine culture to verify that the infection/bacteria is gone. Ideally, a culture was done prior to beginning antibiotic treatment. Cultures identify the specific bacteria and report what antibiotics the bacteria are sensitive to and validate correct diagnosis; 2) obtain a renal ultrasound or preferably a ct scan to rule out abscess, stone, blockage. ...Read more

On day 6 of cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500 mg1 tablet 2x per day for sinus and ear infection. Inner ears still hurt and am now running a low fever. Possible reasons?
Cipro (ciprofloxacin): Cipro (ciprofloxacin) treats some bacterial sinus/ear infections, but the fact is most sinus and ear infections in adults and children are viral and would be unaffected by antibiotics. Worsening symptoms indicate either inflammation/fluid accumulation and may be relieved with netti-pot, antihistamines, time. But, if this is bacterial, worsening suggests resistance and the need for a different antibiotic. ...Read more

Doctor says I have typhoid fever. I have pains all over my bones and muscles? Is this part of the symptoms? Plus blurred vision. I just finished cipro (ciprofloxacin)
Typhoid: Where are you? This disease is uncommon in the usa and these symptoms are not generally part of the 4 phase illness created by salmonella typhi.

Wash your hands: And her hands too. The Cipro (ciprofloxacin) would do nothing for influenza, as it is a viral illness. She should be tested for flu, and if positive, started on tamiflu or relenza, as they will help to cut down on her illness and the likelihood that she could transmit it to other people as well. Keep her well hydrated, as that is generally why most people end up hospitalized for an illness. ...Read more
How long does it take for ciprofloxacin to work on kidney infection? Wife has been taking every 12 hours for past 8 days & pain still in kidney area. However burn in urine has decreased w/ no fever.
Kidney Inflammation: For pyelonephritis a 14 day course of antibiotics should get rid of the infection. However, kidney swelling can cause ongoing discomfort. Like a bruise after trauma, it will take time for the inflammation to go away; in the meantime, increase h2o, reduce caffeine/alcohol intake and avoid spicy/acidic foods to reduce irritation. Use nsaids and see md if not better when antibiotics are done. ...Read more
