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.
You should be fine with these other liquids as long as you still drink plenty of water. You'll only know if infection is clear if you go to doctor and have them check your urine.
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...
Drinking alcohol with antibiotics will lessen their effect, not a good idea.
