My last dose of Flagyl and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) was taken this morning for pouchitis flareup. I now have a yeast infection, when can I take Diflucan 150mg?

Take it now. I've never heard the term "pouchitis", but I'm guessing colonic diverticulitis (?). Your treatment was typical for diverticulitis, and certainly could trigger a yeast infection. You can take fluconazole (Diflucan) any time; there's no need to delay. But if in doubt either about the diagnosis of yeast, or its treatment, check with the doc who prescribed the antibiotics. Good luck! Read more...

I'm taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) to treat a UTI but think I am getting symptoms of a yeast infection. What are some vitamins or supplements that I can take?

Probiotics. Probiotics are a good, natural supplement to aid your body's immune system during this time. Other "supplements" that have beneficial properties to help avoid yeast infections include yogurt and buttermilk, both of which help to restore healthy bacteria into the body to replace the natural flora killed by cipro (ciprofloxacin).

Wrong question. What kind of "UTI"? For routine cystitis cipro should not be used unless there is no alternative. Typical treatment for acute cystitis is just 1 to 3 days. Or do you have a complicated pyelonephritis? Probiotic may reduce slightly the risk of C. Diff but probably not yeast overgrowth.
