Both Prozac and Cipro contain high levels of Fluoride that can cause UTI. I suffered with chronic UTI until I discovered my food and beverage choices and medicine were all full of fluoride and causing it.

I went off all my physc meds 6 months ago. My doctors started me back on them. I am 54. I got a uti and am not able to get rid of it. Process of elimination leads only to the effect that Prozac is causing it. There is nothing new to my diet. I've been on Cipro 1000mg

Prozac causes urinary retention which can cause UTIs!! Constant UTIs can cause Interstatial Cystitus, which may have to be treated for life. If you have suffered from this join with me in starting a class action suit.
