Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Do you still need help?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yeh I had this a while back, anaerobes and strep found from urethral swab - took metronidazole and azithromycin but not sure if it has worked. Have an intermittent non painful ache in my right testicle and my lower abdomen doesn't feel right. Have had some diahrheaa. Checked my testicles for nodules and there aren't any. Going to see dr tomorrow. I had a urine test a few weeks ago which was all clear so not sure what this ache is.

you likely have epididymitis

for this, I would take cipro

I have some cipro, what dose do I take, with or without food?? I have taken cipro before, will it be effective again??
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
I generally recommend seeing a doctor to do this

dose is generally 500 mg three times a day with food

It should be effective
