    It only takes one time, brother, and was Black Boxed for good reason. It's a totally unnecessary sledgehammer antibiotic.

    Look at my numbers, doug....you're a long way off from having to worry about your microscopic reading. That PSA can creep up for a while, and then level off.

    Not to worry....cause it doesn't help....

    As I said, in some cases, Cipro causes C-diff, an infection you really don't want.

    All that's usually required is a much milder cephalusporins antibiotic, not a fluoroquinolones one like Cipro,...

    Cipro has been 'black boxed' by the FDA. The docs used this sledgehammer antibiotic on me when I had my prostate biopsy. It caused C-diff, a miserable reaction. Tread lightly! There are much milder...

    Ain't it amazing that this 'slow moving' cancer drains us of almost everything that makes life wonderful. I could start a list but it would be depressing, even to me.

    Me too. I only had one. It was a piece of cake, BUT I got C. Diff from the sledgehammer antibiotic used, Cipro. Stay far away from it.
