In brief: Both

It is important to finish your antibiotics to ensure that you get rid of the UTI or it may come back again or get worse .
You can do an otc yeast treatment at the same time without any harm

In brief: Can use both.

I wouldn't stop the antibiotic unless you've consulted your doctor first.
Yeast infections can definitely be a result of antibiotic use. You can use both the over the counter yeast infection treatment and the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) at the same time. Good luck!
