  • Both at the same time

    Hi - I have a UTI and yeast infection at the same time. Knowing that antibiotics CAUSE yeast infections, does it make a difference if I take a yeast infection pill at the same time I'm taking antibiotics?

    Example: I just took Cipro and Fluconazole. Do they cancel each other out?? I wonder.............................

    Also, in viewing the topics here I'm being asked to 'register', but I am already signed in so when I try to register it says that name is already in use. What do I do??? I've been registered to this support forum for 4 years.
    Exposure to an unclean hot tub 2-17-07 FIRST UTI
    (Got ringworm-like sores from it before)
    (Someone else got what looked like 'eye herpes')
    (My husband got an ear infection. We were all just sitting there!)
    SYMPTOMS: Severe Urgency/Frequency for 18 months, food sensitivity, widespread nerve pains (random and everywhere), deep bladder pain that developed into flares at 4 months. Completely unreasonable diet sensitivity.
    TESTS: Nothing showed in urine cultures, CT scan, Cystoscopy, Lumbar puncture, back and brain MRIs, EMG tests.
    Hydrodistension Surgery/Biopsy showed minor glomerulations, inflammatory and mast cells, and a rare eosinophil. Blood tests show elevated ANA.
    CONFUSED: My hands and feet started falling asleep. I got twitching nerves or muscles everywhere. I started having concentration and memory problems, vision problems, then fatigue and chronic migraines. Fibromyalgia diagnosed, SSDI disability awarded at 4 years, then gone at 7 years. Won the appeal. IBS and esophagus spasms at 6 years.
    MEDICATIONS: Marcaine/Heparin/Sodium Bicarb instills, Lyrica, Nortriptyline, Uribel. Paxil and Trazadone from before. Painkillers as needed. Supplements include CystoProtek, DH Aloe, Colostrum.
    PREVIOUS CONDITIONS: Sudden onset of double vision, Paxil Discontinuation Syndrome, PTSD

    Boy that is quite a list in your sig.

    I have no idea why it is asking you to register, but I did have to try 2 x's to get signed in it said I had used the wrong user ID I guess they are having a few glitches.

    I have had both at the same time, I was told but you should ask your Dr. as they all seem to have their own opinion and everyone is different and reacts differently to meds.

    My Dr. said since like you I had already taken the diflucan, that it was okay but to make sure and take another dose of it in a weeks time and in a week after that if I was on Ab's past the one week or still had any symptoms. He also said you take this once a week, but it stays in your system for 7 days, and keeps working.

    Lets hope it clears your infection up or at least holds it at bay and doesn't get any worse.

    I would talk to your Dr. especially if you don't have any more dose's

    MG
    My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

          You guys would laugh....

          ....seriously you would laugh if you saw me right now. I was all worried about getting a worse yeast infection with Cipro, but instead, I am COMPLETELY COVERED IN HIVES! I mean... completely! Even the bottoms of my feet! And I've never had an allergic reaction to anything before that I'm aware of. WILD. Needless to say, I switched to Bactrim.

            Ugh! Hope things settle down soon. Are you able to take an antihistamine to help with the hives?

                Up all night...

                ... I was up all night with itchy feet instead of a flare. I found an old tube of triamcinolone acetonide cream this morning, though. Works great. I'm just wondering how often this happens? It seems like everyone in here has been on Cipro. These are some serious bad-*ss hives, and I had only taken 3 Cipro pills prior to the outbreak.

                  Anyone can develop an allergic reaction to anything at any time. Aside from allergy testing its next to impossible to determine the allergen. While its probable the Cipro is the culprit, its not definite. Symptoms from an allergic reaction can appear weeks after coming into contact with the allergen. It would be a good idea to contact your Dr so s/he will know whats happened, and perhaps be able to give you an rx antihistamine. Hives can be serious. Discussing your reaction with your pharmacist could give you some answers as well as to whether its probably the Cipro or not.
                  Regardless, I hope things settle down soon. Hives are no fun. <--you scratching.

                  Feel better!

                    Cipro

                    OMG YES IT WAS THE CIPRO. I don't generally have allergic reactions to anything. A day and a half on Cipro for the first time, and I had hives head to toe. It's listed in the side effects. As for hives being serious, tell me about it! The ones on the bottom of my feet are keeping me up all night. Scratch scratch! They're taking forever to heal up, too.

                        Yep

                        No more itching. Still a lot of dots on my legs, but they're fading Thanks for asking! This makes me wonder more about 'quinolone' antibiotics, though. I read some bad things about them when I wondered what caused my nerve pain to be so widespread and severe. One possibility was the Levaquin I took after my initial UTI didn't go away with Bactrim back in '07.

                          I know that 'quinolone' antibiotics' are all in the same family but they are all a bit different so I would refrain from xing them all off. I don't tolerate Cipro too well, but levo seems to be fine.

                          I realize it they all still has the possible side effects that people are worried about, but sometime getting rid of a UTI or other infection, out weighs the risks of the ab.

                          Just a side a note I think I said before I took Cipro for a week a week ago, well on Sunday I realized I have a yeast infection, I don't get yeast infections too often any more so this kinda came at me as a unwelcome surprise.

                          Who well thats life just something else to deal with.

                          MG
