Should I take Ciprofloxacin without knowing if I have H.Pylori?

by Dixie

I have severe pain, bloating and belching for 2 weeks now. The doctor did a blood test and said it was all normal. However, I don't think she tested for H. Pylori because I understand you drink something first. She put me on Ciprofloxacin 500 for 10 days. This drugs hurts my head severly and I have stopped taking after 2 days. My pain isn't near as bad as it was, but it's still there. Do I need to see another doctor and have the H.Pylori test done so I will know for sure if I have H.Pylori? Thank you for any help.

Holy Smoly, No no no!. That is malpractice!
by: Kerri

Unless you have a confirmed infection, it would literally be malpractice for your doctor to give you Cipro, and that is not even the first line treatment for H pylori! The standard of care is a triple therapy of antibiotics!

First, you need to call your doctor and find out if you actually have a confirmed infection.

Next, even if you DO have H pylori, you need to let him know about your symptoms and INSIST that he choose another antibiotic. Cipro is an incredible dangerous antibiotic that should never be used when an alternative is available. It's so dangerous, in fact, that most of my clientele has been damaged from Cipro and it's sister Levaquin. In fact, I wrote the book The Levaquin Tendonitis Solution as a response to the huge numbers of people that are damaged by Cipro and its relatives. These are incredibly dangerous antibiotics.

If it turns out that you DO have an H pylori infection, then I would suggest that you get by book The H Pylori Solution to better understand your options in treating this infection.
