I have posted in the symptoms thread about me having a UTI. I was able to pick up my prescriptions today and I am SO happy that I decided to read the papers that come with the pills before taking them. They prescribed me Cipro as an antibiotic. As I was reading the papers, I happened to notice that it says do not take with methotrexate. I told the doctor and the nurse at the hospital I went to about all my medications INCLUDING Methotrexate.
"when taking cipro with methotrexate: Ciprofloxacin may decrease the ability of your kidneys to remove methotrexate from your body.
What might happen:
The amount of methotrexate in your body may increase, which may cause more serious, potentially life threatening side effects."
you would think people that are getting paid THOUSANDS of dollars a year would know how to properly prescribe medication to a patient! NOW I have to wait until TOMORROW before I can get an actual medication I can take to clear this infection. I'm feeling more and more sick each day. This is terrible. -__- Needless to say, they will be hearing from me! This is inexcusable.
