CIPROFLOXACIN SUSPENSION - ORAL

USER REVIEWS

Comment from: S2 35-44 Transgender 6 months to less than 1 year Caregiver Published: March 24

It's a potent antibiotic. No question the side-effects are a bit much to endure (my dreams became really involved and vivid), however, it cleared my kidney and bladder infection FAST. I've taken it both intravenously and in pill form (both 500 and then 1000mg) It took the pain away from my bladder infection in less than 24 hours! I recommend staying the course. It's better than having the infection get worse. Cipro got me back on my feet and back into life quickly. I would not hesitate to take it again if I had to.

Cipro changed my life forever. Took the drug for diverticulitis. A year later, Lightheadedness and Headaches daily. Never had headaches in my life before this Dry Mouth and had 5 Cavities in one year and I have not had one in 20 years My eyes hurt badly and I keep squinting. They hurt so bad and I do not know why- I told my optometrist about it also. Pain in all joints of my body and bursitis on right elbow. Pain in all bones in legs and arms. My feet are on fire day and night. DO NOT EVER USE THIS DRUG PLEASE!

Cipro was prescribed for me for a serratia marascens infected seroma following a lymph node dissection for breast cancer. I was nervous to take it after reading about the potential side effects, but the pharmacist assured me that if I took each dose with a lot of water and did not lie down afterwards, it would be fine. This advice turned out to be correct. I took a 500mg dose at 7 AM and 7PM, each with a full liter of water. There were no side effects at all, not even minor ones. The infection cleared up very quickly, as well.

Cipro was prescribed and it nearly killed my Dad. Excessive diarrhea in first 24-hours left him terribly weakened and dehydrated stuck on bathroom floor close to death. He was already in the tunnel heading toward the bright light. The only possible worse outcome than being stuck on bathroom floor for 2 days completely dehydrated and weakened would have been death. Avoid this drug at all costs. Look closely at the chemical composition of this drug and you will see why there are so many horrible to deadly side effects. AVOID CIPRO AT ALL COSTS!

Comment from: Beyond mad 35-44 Transgender less than 1 month Caregiver Published: July 27

I was prescribed this medication for a UTI that did not go away with the first medicine prescribed. Within 24 hours of my first dose my ankle began to hurt three days later I read the warnings and realized that it was the medication causing my problems. I discontinued it immediately and emailed my doctor who told me drinking water would flush the medication out of my body. 8 days later I am still limping and scared that my tendon will rupture. This is a nightmare! I shouldn't have even been prescribed it because of my preexisting health condition. So now I'm scheduled to go into my doctor's office tomorrow, but I am pissed! Why do they even prescribe this???

Comment from: Ciprosucks 35-44 Male less than 1 month Patient Published: March 27

I'll start off saying I have never had a reaction to medication in my life, and have nka. This is until I was given Cipro for a kidney infection. I should have known better after reading the three pages of warnings, but given my positive track record with medications I figured I'd give it a go, which was a bad decision. The first day on Cipro was mostly uneventful. I did have a small problem with blood sugar levels, but that was expected since it was listed as a possible mild side effect. By day two I started noticing pain in my inner thighs. Not a lot at first, but by day three the tendons in both legs felt like they were on fire. I called my doctor and was told to stop. It's been three days since I stopped taking Cipro and the pain continues. I am unable to sleep unless I pass out from exhaustion. I require assistance with walking, and have difficulty concentrating. I wish I had read the reviews before taking thus stuff. As others have said, you are rolling the dice with Cipro. It really needs to be removed from the market.

I took 4 pills of cipro, over a month ago. It was supposed to be a 7 day course of it, but it took only 4 pills to completely cripple me. I have been living on the couch, intense pain from my foot tendons, and all kinds of messed up sensations in my hands and feet. From everything I read, this may or may not be permanent, I may or may not rupture my achilles just by walking, I may or may not rupture my aorta... and I won't necessarily know if I escape THOSE side effects for a few years. Because I reacted at all, I'm a ticking time bomb for all of it. I have no words to describe how terrifying it is to live like this, I am so depressed, so frustrated, and so ANGRY. When I reacted, they shrugged and changed me over to Augmentin, which worked fine with NO side effects. If that was an option, there's NO REASON I should ever have been prescribed this poison. It's black boxed in the US, Health Canada has strong warnings for it, you're only supposed to be given it in extremely dire situations... and I knew NONE of this until it was too late.

I was prescribed Cipro and flagyl for first time diverticulitis. After 3 days on meds, I felt much better. On the 4th day I broke out in a rash all around the mid section of my body.I itched like crazy. Never scratched so much in my life.Doctor felt it was not the meds and said to continue the full 10 days. 5th day , rash subsided,itching much less.So I finished. Now I am nauseous in the AM. I feel like eating something will help.But then I just feel more nauseous. By late afternoon,I feel better. I have never vomited, I just feel like I have to.

I'll start off saying I have never had a reaction to medication in my life, and have nka. This is until I was given Cipro for a kidney infection. I should have known better after reading the three pages of warnings, but given my positive track record with medications I figured I'd give it a go, which was a bad decision. The first day on Cipro was mostly uneventful. I did have a small problem with blood sugar levels, but that was expected since it was listed as a possible mild side effect. By day two I started noticing pain in my inner thighs. Not a lot at first, but by day three the tendons in both legs felt like they were on fire. I called my doctor and was told to stop. It's been three days since I stopped taking Cipro and the pain continues. I am unable to sleep unless I pass out from exhaustion. I require assistance with walking, and have difficulty concentrating. I wish I had read the reviews before taking thus stuff. As others have said, you are rolling the dice with Cipro. It really needs to be removed from the market.

I took 4 pills of cipro, over a month ago. It was supposed to be a 7 day course of it, but it took only 4 pills to completely cripple me. I have been living on the couch, intense pain from my foot tendons, and all kinds of messed up sensations in my hands and feet. From everything I read, this may or may not be permanent, I may or may not rupture my achilles just by walking, I may or may not rupture my aorta... and I won't necessarily know if I escape THOSE side effects for a few years. Because I reacted at all, I'm a ticking time bomb for all of it. I have no words to describe how terrifying it is to live like this, I am so depressed, so frustrated, and so ANGRY. When I reacted, they shrugged and changed me over to Augmentin, which worked fine with NO side effects. If that was an option, there's NO REASON I should ever have been prescribed this poison. It's black boxed in the US, Health Canada has strong warnings for it, you're only supposed to be given it in extremely dire situations... and I knew NONE of this until it was too late.

I was prescribed Cipro and flagyl for first time diverticulitis. After 3 days on meds, I felt much better. On the 4th day I broke out in a rash all around the mid section of my body.I itched like crazy. Never scratched so much in my life.Doctor felt it was not the meds and said to continue the full 10 days. 5th day , rash subsided,itching much less.So I finished. Now I am nauseous in the AM. I feel like eating something will help.But then I just feel more nauseous. By late afternoon,I feel better. I have never vomited, I just feel like I have to.

Not a fan. There are so many other antibiotics with far fewer side effects. I’ve never had an antibiotic give me anxiety.

Helped ease Diverticulitis pain when combined w/ Flagyl however even following the prescribed manner of taking the meds, I developed the worst diarrhea on the 3rd day that I have ever had. Literally, pooped every 30 mins for close to 24 hours before I could reach the MD who discontinued these meds and put me on Augmentin which I am tolerating better. Cipro and Flagyl destroy the natural flora of the bowels. Won't take again!

Cipro is strong and effective, but do not take it unless as a last resort and your life is threatened. If I could go back in time and get Cipro out of my body, I would. My tendons are ruined in my hips, wrists, fingers, knees and elbows, I have constant neuropathy in feet and hands, distal-plantar fasciitis to the point of being booted in one foot for the years since I took it. Rashes showed up that first week and have been with me ever since--on my lips and scalp and torso. It has permanently destroyed my once fairly normal and strong body--do your research! Even the FDA site now says that doctors should not prescribe except as last resort, but apparently doctors have not gotten this memo. If this even saves one person from taking the drug, I am glad.

This medicine poisoned me, my symptoms include, overall weakness, extreme fatigue, loss of balance, hair loss, tendon pain, neuropathy in my legs and feet, extreme anxiety, sleeplessness, sudden appearance of varicose veins and more. Do not risk taking this or any fluoroquinolone.

After starting this medication I had pain and numbing on top of both hands and feet. I felt weakness right away in my legs and could barely move my ankle. Thank God I looked up all the side effects after this and quit right away hoping the side effects would go away. I honestly can't believe someone put this on the market!

I was prescribed Cipro for prostate infection and it did absolutely nothing to help but cause me major issues from the very first day, the headache I could cope w if I knew it was helping my infection but that was the start then flulike symptoms complete body aches everywhere from neck to ankles in which still 3 weeks later are aching , Bones aching , I was tested for the flu and it was negative I already knew it was from the Cipro it all began once I took the pill the following morning I was aching , my joints are killing me non stop, lower back, hips , I had to take pain Medication just to help w the side effects of the Cipro. This drug should not be given to your worst enemy it is so bad. Do not use this ask your Dr for a different antibiotic antibiotic!!!
