I was prescribed Ciprofloxacin for a UTI this am by my doctor. He told me to take a probiotic to help with the good gut bugs and I asked about yogurt. He said fine. But the flyers my pharmacist gave me say to take 2 hours before or wait 6 hours after. Same with vitamins. I take eyevites for my macula. Also, would alcohol affect the use of this drug. The drug sounds like it comes with a lot of bad baggage. Should I take it at all?
