hello i visited a consultant recently and was prescribed cipofloxacin to clear up a potential UTI because I had the following symptoms: a little urine retention, soreness at tip of penis.
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, when were you prescribed ciprofloxacin? How severe were any side effects?
Customer: so yes, I was prescribed yesterday, took the first dose this morning. a couple of hours later i got tingling and burning in my right and groin. It was not severe, but it was noticeable. Should I discontinue the antibiotics?
JA: The Doctor will be able to answer that. Have you seen a doctor about the tingling?
Customer: no it's saturday and unable to get in touch with the consultant now until after bank holiday, on Tuesday

Not at all , i would advise you to continue Ciproflocxacin . Its very effective in lower urinary tract infections.

Minor symptoms can be disregarded.

Hope you feel better soon.
