    For UTI's

    I was on Kflex, (didn't work) and now doc wants me to take Cipro, WHICH I DON NOT WANT TO DO!

    Any help would be appreciated

    I have in the past tried Nitrofurantoin (had bad racing heart, ended up in ER) and Macrobid (caused bad depression)

    Stay away from these antibiotics unless you are on your deathbed and nothing else will work.

    I have used a number of ABs over my lifetime: Trimethoprin, Bactrim, penicillan, amoxicillan, Cipro and others and although I occaisionaly suffered some minor side effects I have not had any lasting effects. I have had no problem with Cipro.

    Just remember that many folks that take cipro, levaquin, avelox, etc, can have no problems for the first, second, third or fourth scrip for the drug. Then, bam, like an late in life reaction to a bee sting, you are permanently disabled. These ABX are the nuclear bombs of the antibiotic world and should be used only when nothing else will work.

    Use at your own risk--you have been fairly warned.
