Question about methylpred and cipro
I am fighting off an infection [may have been strep] and went to the health clinic yesterday, getting Cipro. However, she also wrote out a perscription for MethylPREDNISolone. On the package it states that it "may lower the ability to fight off infection". . . . which seems counterproductive to me. Is it still a good way to medicate?
While I'm at it, the Cipro is to be taken twice a day. She instructed for me to take it for 5 days, even though the perscription is 20 pills. Basically, she said "the normal time for taking Cipro IS 5 days, but if I wasn't feeling better by them, to take the rest. If I AM feeing better, keep them for the next time I end up with an infection". I'd like to know if 5 days is actually too short or should I go the entire 10 days, since there were 20 given?
What is your input to what I've stated here?
As a side note, . . . after taking antibiotics for several days, AFTER the regiment is over, what are the best foods to eat to replenish your body [since the antibiotics may kill good things too]?
EDC means EveryDay Carry...........because everyone should carry a small light with them all the time.
