Discussions that mention cipro

Children's Health board


well, im not sure.. But,, Has she tried Cipro? (anti inflammatory, i think), I used it myself. (for my many bladder infections, (i had 1 a month from 4yrs-12 yrs old). It asctually, cured them.. I havent had one since i was 12.. It works good.:d (it might also help with the pain also, since it is a anti inflammatory..
Cipro is an antibiotic isnt it? I think the doctor said that kids shouldnt be on it. I did find out however that she can only take 3 different antibiotics because her body doesnt respond to any others. She has gotten better after she was on Feradentin (I think thats how its spelled lol) When she went to the ER they did an ultrasound of her kidneys and said that nothing was wrong there. The next day her left side pain went away. They said that that might happen because she could also be passing stones or something. I did mention before that she has crystals in her gallbladder. Now they want to do a test called VCUG? I'm pretty sure thats what its called. I just find it strange that she went from extreme constant pain to no pain at all in one day? Weird. Its just so hard when its your child and you cant seem to do anything about it. Thanks for writing whiteluluflower!
lol, maybe it is a antbiotic.. i havent taken it for awhile.. hmm. i guess ur right.. lol
With me I wasnt able to take Penicillin either ( Allergic to it)

i started had cipro, whrn i was 10/11.. i think.. So i was a kid.. I used it for a couple months, (whenever i got infection).. I dont think the doc ever said kids shouldnt use it.. I used it. and it worked GREAT!!
Cipro is used for many different things.. so i dont know why kids wouldnt be allowed to be on it (although, ive heard they shouldnt... yet i was on it..

Same as another med i was on, at 15.. it has a warning, saying, no one under 18 should use that medication.. lol (im still currently on it too..)

It sounds like kidney stones. If they are small they may not show up. I'm 57 and I have a number of bouts. If she is screaming in pain and then it disappears. What happens is they block the uretha (tube between kidney and bladder). One of the best temporary fixes is to get her to drink lots and lots of water. That usually does a good job of passing them if they are really small. I was told the last time I had one that I should go to the ER if they are that bad. I'm all grown up and the pain can bring me to my knees. I really hope they find out what's causing all her pain.
