  • Have had an ongoing infection for 7 months. It is completely ruining my life. Bactrim and Cipro make me almost imobile, can't tale them anymore. Last script was for something that started with an M, can't remember the exact name but it worked better than anything else for a while. I am now having the feeling that " it " is coming back again. UTI's are pure torment. I wish you luck.:mad::mad:

  • thanks.. i guess antibiotics are generally supposed to make you feel ****ty..you should ask about norflox... I'm already feeling so much better found out that I get them just from having sex (I've had the same partner for a year now) and it's not something that's transmitted, the germs reach the urethra because during sex it's easier to 'push the bacteria in' :eek: sometimes it's good to sit with your doctor and keep asking them questions until they turn red..
