What are some alternatives to Ciprofloxacin?

What are some alternatives to taking the antibiotic Cipro for dealing with a Urinary Tract Infection? I do not want to take a similiar drug that contains fluoroquinolone like in Cipro, Cipro XR, Proquin XR, Levaquin, Floxin, Noroxin, Avelox, Factive, or any generics.

Here are some alternatives to Ciprofloxacin, that your doctor might prescribe:

1) Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim, Septra)
2) Amoxicillin (Amoxil, Augmentin)
3) Nitrofurantoin (Furadantin)
4) Macrodantin
5) Ampicillin

Bactrim does not contain fluoroquinolone is often a good alternative to Cipro for combating UTI.
