I did stop taking them.... I stopped taking them on day 17 out of 21. They tested me 13 days into the cipro & they said there was no infection left, but they also said that cipro could affect the test, possibly. But I have no fever. So when I went for an adjustment on my neck with a D.O. & he questioned why I should have to take it so long. He was not familiar with my kidney infection/possible stone health records of tests & stuff, but questioned my having stones & how long I was on cipro, so I quit taking it. The nausea is gone. I feel better, but still have some pelvic/groin pain & back pain. I have had some burning, frequency & difficulty urinating sometimes since I have stopped, but it is not all the time. I can go easily a few times then have problems, then it's okay. Not sure why that is or if it is just some after effects of the infection or medication. I guess the CT scan tomorrow will tell all. I will let you all know how that goes. But I have been feeling better than I was, I was really ill for a few days like I don't think I have been in my life... If it was the cipro, why wouldn't they know the possibility of having a reaction or symptoms from the cipro? They knew I was taking it?
