Cipro and my Achilles tendons (Read 1572 times)






      When I expressed these concerns to my doctor (it was the ER doctor who prescribed the Cipro) she told me I could switch from Cipro to another anti-biotic and prescribed Bactrim.  I have not filled the prescription yet.  This was yesterday.  Four days into the Cipro, would you recommend the switch?  


      She did advise that I continue taking an anti-biotic either way since the stone could have caused infection.  I hate to be so focused on the running, but it really does matter to me.


      Thanks again...Tom

      Yeah, well...sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

        I am not your doctor.  However, for most urinary infections, the two can be interchangeable.
