- I am on cipro for three more days. when can i take my prilosec
I am concerned about taking Cipro with other drugs and/or supplements. The label says not to use within 6 hours with antacid, vitamins, calcium and not to take with yogurt etc. I take Prilosec every day and can't figure out when/if I can take it with the Cipro. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

- Did levaquin cause my menengitis?
I was given Levaquin to treat pneumonia and this immediately lead to menengitis. I spent a week in the hospital and after 50 blood tests, they still never determined the cause.
- Will my short-term memory loss, caused by levaquin, every go away?

I've had some type of neuropathy for some time. My hand and feet have pain, numbness, and tingling. My feet are always freezing even in the summer and my hands are also very cold. More recently, I've been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis starting in my neck and all the way down and told I now need total hip replacement. The left hip will be replaced this month Monday February 23,2015.
I have trouble dropping things with my right hand particularly the right, in addition to using it for various tasks. Other symptoms are dizziness, off balance whether I'm getting out of bed or basic physical activity such as walking and there are other symptoms, which I haven't listed.
