I was prescribed Cipro 500mg 2x a day for 7 days for a kidney infection; It's been 3 days since my last dosage although I still have upper right shoulder pain my condition is clearing up, Urine is less frequent, clear and full strength. When will I know if the infection is fully gone? or when will I know I can drink coffee, tea or alcohol again. I'm still flushing with water and cranberry juice.
Hi, it probably isn't a good idea to drink caffeine (tea & coffee) whilst taking Cipro', as it can increase the effects of the caffeine, which could potentially lead to some adverse symptoms. There isn't a warning about drinking alcohol with this medication. Check out the link below...
