avoid quinolones for UNCOMPLICATED urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women

You'll see a new push to avoid quinolones for UNCOMPLICATED urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women.

Ciprofloxacin is often used for ANY UTI. It usually works, but it can cause a lot of "collateral damage"...by inducing drug-resistant Staph, Pseudomonas, and other strains of bacteria.

Recommend other antibiotics first for UNCOMPLICATED UTIs in otherwise healthy women who are not pregnant.
