I was diagnosed with a bladder infection and given ciprofloxacin. I'm on my 5th day and the pain in my back seems to have gotten worse. It's on my left side and it's worse when I wake up in the morning. Does this medication sometimes not work?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is concerning.

Cipro may not work sometimes due to the bacterial resistance.

You need to see your doctor today or go to the ER for further evaluation.

Infection may spread to the kidneys requiring IV antibiotics.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
