User :   i still am not feeling in the best of health
User :   i hve been taking cipro for about 24 days now
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it will take some time to act
User :   at times it seems like everything is fine
User :   and at times i hve penis pain and discomfort or just 1 of them
Doctor :   did your doctor advise you to take cipro for more than 2 weeks?
User :   is 10 mg of elavil good enough?
User :   yea he gave me 30 days prescription
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   what is the composition of elavil?
User :   10 mg
User :   wht do u mean by composition xactly doctor
Doctor :   what drug is it? what you told us is the brand name.
User :   lemme tell u
User :   its amitriptyline
Doctor :   ok
User :   is 10 mg of that ok?
Doctor :   thats not a pain killer
Doctor :   that is an antidepressant
User :   well pain killers dint help me much i guess
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   and the dose is the lowest possible
User :   in that case what is the alternative?
Doctor :   what other medicines are you taking?
User :   cipro
User :   and i use lotrisone on foreskin at times
Doctor :   ok
User :   should i still continue takin
User :   pain killers?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   werent you taking pyridium?
User :   yea i was
User :   i stopped it
User :   coz i took quite a bit of it i guess
Doctor :   ok
User :   shud i start takin pyridium
User :   and painkillers too
Doctor :   there is no need for any more pain killers i guess
Doctor :   is the pain very severe?
User :   well kind of
User :   its really annoying
User :   and discomforting
User :   its weird
User :   coz at times discomfort and pain completely go away
User :   and then at times both come back
Doctor :   if it is just annoying then there is no need for further medicines. I will subside by itself, but if there is real pain then we can consider any pain killers
User :   yea i think
User :   pain killers
User :   would be a good option
User :   coz it still kinda hurts
User :   doctor all this has been a mess for the last 2 months
Doctor :   as you have already taken several pain killers it wouldnt be ggod for you to continue further
User :   i really wish to get out of it
Doctor :   yes
User :   ok
Doctor :   these things take time to heal
Doctor :   i know it is difficult for you
User :   shud i get the CT scan
Doctor :   but you just have to be patient
User :   i dont even mind paying for this
User :   but the only prob is what if CT scan says everythin is normal
Doctor :   if the symptoms dont regress in 2 weeks more then consider getting it done
User :   ok...
User :   but as a doctor
User :   do u know
User :   what happens if the results r normal
Doctor :   it is an infection that is not going down. if it is persisting for longer than usual there might be some underlying cause
User :   i see
User :   and is CT scan painfuk
User :   painful*
Doctor :   No. Not at all.
User :   i see
User :   what would be better
User :   a CT scan or ultrasound?
Doctor :   as yo already had an ultrasound done
User :   no i hvent
User :   yet
Doctor :   CT might be helpful
Doctor :   ok
User :   none of the doctors hve recommended that
User :   yet
Doctor :   then an ultrasound can be done
User :   ok..
User :   r they almost similar?
Doctor :   no
User :   ok...
Doctor :   CT is more sensitive than ultrasound.
User :   which makes it better than ultrasound rite?
User :   and ultrasound is not painful either correct?
Doctor :   no
