I finally sucked it up and started taking the cipro for my suspected flare. I've been in the bathroom 6 times today and I've only been up 3 hours. No D but cramps and 6 times is a lot so I figured I'd take the dive.
Since cipro is an antibiotic, do I need to worry about taking a probiotic with it? I do take probiotics when I'm on z-pack and other antis like that but does this count?
