Been having trouble with stomach problems for over 3 months now. Acid problems which is more painful when my stomach is empty. Also, have to go to the bathroom right after I eat.Nexium doesn't really help and I'm not showing an ulcer. Anyone else get these problems in the same time frame as I have?
Also, curious about the effectiveness of medicine I've had in my shelf. Have Cipro which expired Feb. of 2000. Was reading where medicine can still be effective for 5 years. Is it still good?
Live in NJ, thats why i'm asking these particular questions. :)
If it would give you peace of mind, go for it, and get the tests.
If you feel fine, and want to wait til you have some other problem, you could wait. It's your choice. Do what feels best to YOU. Or, you could call up your doctor and speak to the doctor, and ask his or her advice about whether to come in for tests!!
But, since you did take the anti-biotic, I urge you to get some yogurt with live cultures, or, some ACIDOPHILUS/BIFIDUS, from a good health food store, to re-populate the beneficial bacteria in your large intestine ("probiotics") that were probably destroyed by the Cipro.
I also suggest that you not take antibiotics, without a prescription, in the future, because if you take the wrong kind, you could worsen an infection! Then, you might have a very "resistant" infection that might not respond to any antibiotics.
