Hello, you were telling someone about an antibiotic that might be safer for them instead of Cipro. I forgot to write it down.

The name started with a D. I hope you can remember it. Thanks, Sally

For men who have prostatitis doxycycline is useful. Many prostatitis patients have mostly inflammation and this antibiotic will help that too.

It will work for females, but carries a yeast potential side effect.

I see, so not really a med to take for UTI? I take D mannose daily so I won't get a UTI but at some point I will have one or infection of some kind. The tried and true Duricef I have been able to take for everything seems to have started to affect me. Itchy hands...A shame. It has been good for a long time.

Do you see any med here I can use with less danger in case of a UTI in the future? Duricef was fine, but now I seem to react with pain/itching in my hands with it. A pity since it was good for years.

I think your choices are slim.

I'd go for the doxycycline.

The question is why are you getting repeats of this infection?

I got them for several years until I saw a urologist. He found out I had a few tiny polyps. He took care of that, then all was much better. I would then get them rarely. Duricef was nice. An oldie, worked great. Not awful like the new ones that are so strong.

I take DMannose and cranberry pills daily now so I will hopefully not get another. My doctor said some women get them no matter what they do. So far the Dmannose works for me.

I just want ideas in case that happens or other problems like an ear infection etc. At some point we all get infections.
