Think of her benefit and not yours, if that is the case. If she is wanting to have sex, i would still stick to the above instructions of getting well. ...Read more

Finished Ciprobay treatment for UTI. Im still taking Flagyl. Each time I take Flagyl, my next pee is painful. Is it the med or UTI is still there?

Finished Ciprobay treatment for UTI. Im still taking Flagyl. Each time I take Flagyl, my next pee is painful. Is it the med or UTI is still there?

Hopefully she/he sent urine specimen for culture & sensitivities so she/he would know of a satisfactory alternative antibiotic 4 you ...Read more
