Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone can answer these questions. My GP prescribed Cipro as my "home reserve" antibiotic. However to day I visited my Respiratory Consultant (nurse.... but very knowledgeable) and she advised against using this antibiotic in this way. She said that it is the best antibiotic for use with pseudomomas and that I may be needed at some stage in the future.
She recommended Doxycycline instead. However, if my memory serves me correctly, This antibiotic failed me once before. If an antibiotic fails to clear an infection once or twice, will it ever be effective in the future?
Also if you have been hospitalised once for antibiotic treatment, will home antibiotics be useless in the future?
Just a little worried and would be grateful for reassurance from fellow sufferers.. Many thanks.
