My ENT wants me to take cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a nasal infection. I have sugar and kidney issues and am scared of possible side effects of cipro (ciprofloxacin). Alternative?

In brief: Ceftin, (cefuroxime)Vantin,Aug.

I presume you have acute sinusitis.
This will frequently resolve without antibiotic treatment. Alternative antibiotics would be Augmentin or Ceftin (cefuroxime) or vantin.
