What to do, what to do? I am on cipro for prostatitis. The material says drink plenty of water. Water gives me heartburn. This is relieved by rolaids or tums. Cipro says only take them 6hrs, b4 or 2 hrs. after a dose. Try waiting two hrs.to take an antacid when u need it now! HELP
Can you drink Crystal Light or Kool-Aid? The main thing is to be well-hydrated while taking antibiotics. Carbonated beverages, tea and coffee will not do the job, because they are dieuretics and you lose the fluids more quickly. Your best bet is probably Crystal Light. It is low calorie (5 calories per 8 oz glass) and you will get the fluids you need. Either that, or get an OTC acid reducer that you can take once or twice a day, like Prevacid, or Zantac. Feel better.
