Acute pharyngitis is nothing like fun. Looks like I have to choose form a very wide range of antibiotics they offer, but since I don’t know too much about them, I’ve decided to ask a question here. My sister says she took Cipro when she had this strep throat issue and it helped her to get well. The problem is, it was pretty much her decision, not a doctor’s recommendation. So I wonder. How well does Cipro work with pharyngitis and are there antibiotics that would be better for strep throat? Antibiotics are not exactly vitamins, so I’m hesitant to take something I know little about.
