I have a very mild bladder infection for which the doctor ordered Cipro (500 mg, BID x 5 days); took the first dose after dinner and had within a period of time an increase in my T to the point where my ordinary routine of listening to music during the day (at the computer) barely masks the screeching; before that dose, I was habituating quite well; today I am so discouraged. I believe that the Cipro is the culprit here even with the one dose (pretty strong med); the links on the med seem to back this. What do other people take in lieu of this poison--my doctor suggested Ceftidine (a 3rd generation med) which the pharmacy (actually 2) don't have. It's part of the Cephalosporins family - anyone have experience with this classification of drugs and impact on T (or not). Thank you.
