Although antibiotics are ok to take, you may have some issues with some. I took Cipro on several occasions preop for treatment or prevention of infections after small procedures at the ER, etc. I used without any issues. I got a bad cut post op and again used Cipro. About 3 days later, I thought I had terminal diarrhea for a week. I ended up stopping the Cipro and had to get a script for Lomotil to stop the diarrhea. My PCP said the Cipro was probably "too good", killing off all bacteria in me, upsetting the natural balance in the colon. I've use Bactrim on a couple of occasions since then, and have not had any similar issue. My medical chart is marked NO CIPRO, as a result. DAVE
