I was diagnosed with a UTI yesterday, and my doctor prescribed Ciprofloxacin, which I have never taken before. I had another UTI previously and was prescribed a sulfa antibiotic which I ended up being allergic to (rash). Because of that incident and the bad things I have heard about Ciprofloxacin, I am very hesitant to begin taking it. I know that amoxicillin is also used to treat UTIs and I took that twice as a child for ear infections so I don't think I would have an allergic reaction now. I also know that Cipro is not a sulfa drug, but there are a lot of bad side effects that I really don't want to mess with. So what should I do? I would feel comfortable taking amoxicillin
