Does Ciprofloxacin cause frequent urination?

I was not peeing a lot before being prescribed cipro. My doctor prescribed 25 days of cipro twice a day because he wants to recheck my high psa count. I m prone to prostate infections, and the last time I took cipro, my psa went down. So I m on cipro to see if a biopsy can be avoided. But now I m urinating quite often. Can cipro be causing this?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per my clinical experience, it is not the Ciprofloxacin causing the frequency of urine, but underlying prostate infection is also responsible for the same. I recommend to take a urine culture and treat accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, for the last 3-4 days I have been urinating every 2-3 hours, noy everytime but most of the time. I had first responder traing for the last 3 days and was encourages to drink more fluids, I had my blood sugar test a little less than 2 months ago, and everything was normal...I was wondering what it could possibly be?

The last few days I have been peeing about every hour or so even though I have only had a 1/2 glass of milk since the morning. The last couple of months, I have had cramps on lower right side (not affiliated with my period). The last week, I have been extremely hungry too. And very tired. I am female, no medicial issues, 43 years, 144 lbs, 5,7 . Thanks.
