I went to a Dr at a walk in clinic and I was put on Ciprofloxacin for a bladder infection, after taking one that afternoon and one the next morning I had an allergic reaction. My tongue started burning and tingling, I had several different aches and pains (achy feet, knees, arms), my eyes burned, got a rash on my arms and got weird tingly sensations on my arms and legs. I seriously freaked out! I was so terrified that I was going to die any second. My doctor told me to stop taking it (obviously) and take some Benadryl and go pick up the new antibiotic she called in for me. It was weird to me how she didn't act like it was a big deal at all...this was all the information she gave me. I (of course) started googling about Cipro and found out that A LOT of people have had horrible reactions to this antibiotic! Anyways, that's a whole other topic. My problem now is, I still have a bladder infection and I have some new antibiotics, nitrofurantoin, and I am TERRIFIED to take them. I am so scared that I am going to have another reaction or something. I talked to a nurse on the phone from my regular doctors office and she told me to not take any other antibiotic because my body is in a sensitive state from the allergic reaction to cipro. I really don't know what to do, but I don't know why the other doctor would've called that in and told me to take it if I am not supposed to. Advice or similar experiences would be SO appreciated!
