I've suffered from chronic kidney disease for 19 years now.

Customer Question
Hi, I've suffered from chronic...
Hi, I've suffered from chronic kidney disease for 19 years now. When I contract an infection in my kidneys or a uti, im usually so bad off sick, that im hospitalized and cipro is given thru iv. However, I started hurting in my right kidney (right kidney is diseased) that I began vomiting. As I said, usually I get so sick, I'm hospitalized but somehow after puking for 21 hours every 15 mins, and multiple suppositories of phenergan, I have stopped vomiting and feel somewhat better. My question is, if I'm usually given iv Cipro, how long should I wait after vomiting should I take the Cipro? (I keep it on hand for this purpose) lts 500 mg. Should I cut it in half and only take 250 mg? I'm just worried with Cipro side effects, I may begin to vomit again. To me, vomiting is the worst, and I'm a thrower upper.

Hello, I'm Dr Manos, obgyn. About 10% of patients will have nausea and vomiting on Cipro IV and oral tablets. You could take 250 mg and not vomit. Will you need definitive rx with this current episode and vomitting with dehydration won't help your kidneys. Anyway, take 250 mg for now and hope your stomach cooperates.

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.

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.
