Reply to "Cipro - long term side effects"

I’ve been on Cipro since 2008, just 500 mg once a day without obvious side effects. When Cipro alone eventually stopped working at that dose I added Flagyl 250 mg once a day, and the combination has been working well for about 7 years. If you have to stay on antibiotics it’s best to try them all in the hope of finding a few effective ones that you can rotate among every 2-3 weeks. Flagyl, rifaximin, and Tindamax are some common alternatives.

A few folks have posted here about success getting off antibiotics for chronic pouchitis (without switching to a biologic medication), but it doesn’t seem to be widespread.
