Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms XXXXXXX


If you are allergic to Clindamycin, I would suggest you to immediately discontinue the use of same.
In that case if antibiotic is really indicated then Cirprofloxacin will be a good alternative.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever

Hi

About 5 weeks ago I developed cystitis which I tried to get rid of myself by drinking plenty of fluids and cranberry juice. I couldn't get rid of it and was presribed trimethroprim for 3 days, this did nothing so I went to GP again on 4 day as I was vomiting and was unable to keep anything down by then. The GP prescribed Ciprofloxacin and painkillers but I couldn't keep these down either. By the following day my skin was a yellow colour and I was taken into hospital for 5 days and given Augumentum through a drip and the infection was the E-coli bacteria. I went home with 2 more days of antibiotics to take orally. I was still experiencing pain in the flank about 4 days after taking my last antibiotic so I called the Dr and blood test confirmed I still had the infection. I was given Augmentum for 7 days but 5 days after taking the last one I was still feeling bad. I was given Nitrofurdantoin on Friday to take 4 times a day but the pain seems to be getting worse. I am also anaemic and have been taking ferrous fulmurate since January. If I go back to the GP should I be asking to see a specialist?
