I took my kids to the doctor. They both tested negative for strep throat. md put them on cefzil. This cost me $40. My throat looks terrible. I've been sick and feel better now; been on cipro for two days. I got the medicine from my neighbor ( a full prescription). After running the kids, paying copay, paying for medicine, I don't have a babysitter to go to the Dr. I was just wondering if the cipro will work for me. I have had strep before, and the symptoms I was having are the same.
