Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic.
This is Dr.Priyanka tiwari answering your query.

I have read your query and understand your concern. As far as periodontal infection is concerned frequently used periodontal combination antibiotic therapies are metronidazole-amoxicillin (250-375 mg of each 3 x daily for 8 days) and metronidazole-ciprofloxacin (500 mg of each 2 x daily for 8 days).
Yes, you can take ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for periodontal infection by consulting with local doctor.

Hope this will help you.
If you have further query i will be happy to help.

Hi i went to the er last week 10/27/2010 for blood after bowel movement on paper and in toilet, they did a vaginal exam ??? diagnosed me with a uti and vagintitus prescribed keflex and flagyl. I dont have insurance so I am saving to pay for these medications , but since the er visit I have been randomly vomiting five times total no real pattern and woke up one morning with a sore swollen lymph node in my elbow area near crik of left arm which is still swollen not extrelmly hard or soft more in between but not too sore now, two days later I had one below left ear swell up and it is sore and still there, this one not extremly hard. I also have had for a month now maybe two what I have assumed to be flea bites because we just got a dog and ive seen the fleas on me and I am highly allergic but either i keep getting bitten or it is a rash spread out in splotches over body mostly on lower legs feet and ankles. Can a uti untreated or vagintitus cause all of this or would you think there is more to it, at er they tested mr for gonorrea and chlamedia both were neg took urine, and blood, called and said two days later the blood test were fine. If you do think it is all caused by uti or vagintitus will the meds take care of everything?
