 1  uti Central and peripheral Nervous System, tendons, ligaments. Neuropathies all over, really painful, and disabling experience. My legs withered within 2 months, and my foot flopped 4 days later after the 3rd & last pill. Severe stabbing nerve pains in my arms, temperature problems from one leg to the other. Endless things manifesting over several months then at one year still more. I did my research, I am very knowledgeable about this class of drugs. Criminal. Watch American Addict the documentary, or PBS NEWS HOUR " Certain Antibiotics Spur Widening Reports of Severe Side Effects" Honestly, there is no one person who could fathom the severity of these drugs...because it is that bad. This is truly a act of treason to approve a class of drugs that is so destructive & not inform the medical community about what it is, and does!! All these people being tortured, maimed,...for the profit of these corporations! I have been through a very challenging experience. I am deeply grateful to be able to walk and stand again, and buy my groceries, and clean my house, and walk into a mall on hard cement. Anyone who would like to learn about non pharmaceutical treatments I received, you are welcome to email me. There is no magic potion, but the treatment I got, turned things around and that is worth sharing with others. This would be for those that are disabled, like I was. Neurological issues, CNS, peripheral nerves & tendons/ arms, legs, standing walking. God Bless and stay faithful...do not give up. F 50 2 days

 1  Parasitic bacterial infection I was initially misdiagnosed with a stomach virus and had to go back to the Doctor as I was extremely sick a week later. A second Doctor suggested that I may have a parasitic infection and prescribed CIPRO. After my second day, 4th pill, I started to feel tingling and burning sensations in both of my legs. I immediately stopped taking the pills and at this moment still feel weakness in both of my legs followed by occasional muscle spasms. I am praying that it won't get worse. Do not take this drug if it prescribed to you, even though it did get rid of my infection. I am scared and worried that my body has now been poisoned as it feels different than before and I am an athletic 40 year old man in great shape. Update: I have been doing research as of late to see if I could find anything to counter the painful effects of Cipro and started taking a magnesium supplement which seems to have considerably helped stop the twitching and general weakness in my legs. I am feeling close to 100% again but am still aware of the unknown and long term effects that seem to be associated with Cipro. M 40

History
 1  diahrrea re: poss. food poisoning Extreme fatigue, weakness, joint pain in hips and knees. Dr. prescribed this to take on a trip to SE Asia in case of an intestinal infection. That was the extent of his instruction. Prior to taking cipro I was very fit and strong. Shortly before taking I had been cross-country skiing every week and often walked 4-5 miles easily. After 4 weeks the extreme fatigue was gone, but still become fatigued much easier and generally feel like the cipro has aged me many years. 6 weeks after taking it, still have much hip pain after walking an easy mile. Becomes too painful to continue after 2 miles or being on my feet for an hour such as when shopping. Gait becomes wobbly due to weakness in hip. This not improved since I stopped the cipro. This drug is to be taken as a last resort in case of a life-threatening infection that nothing else cures. M 56 2 days

 1  UTI Worst drug known to mankind. Still experiencing side effects 3 years later. Achy joints, muscle tension, spasms and twitches, peripheral neuropathy, white matter deterioration on MRI, dizziness, the list goes on. If I was offered cipro or rat poison in the future, I'd take my chances with rat poison. Ask for anything other than cipro. If you experience the devastating affects of cipro, do whatever you can to ingest an anti-inflammatory diet. A daily chelated magnesium supplement helped my nervous system and muscles so much. Water, detox, lower your stress levels. Remember your body is designed to find alignment and you WILL heal over time. F 27 2 days

 1  Prostatitis Right after I took the pills, I noticed that my tendons would hurt after stretching and my right foot felt numb for like a week. But it wasnt that bad. Then about 3 months later the tendons in my right arm inflamed and things have gotten worse since then. The tendons at pretty much every joint hurt now, especially after activitiy (walking for a little period of time = pain in knees and feet the next 3 days, a day working at the computer = pain in hands, elbows and shoulders). Also I'm experiencing a horrible amount of crackling and popping sounds at all of my joints including my rips, which they have never done before. Now if for example I hang up laundry to dry, my hands crack up to 40 times doing so (my doctor was trying to tell me, that the cracking of joints is totally normal, which of course it is, just not this amount, so I counted it once). It's been 5 months since I took the pills and the pain only got better a little bit. Please do not take this drug unless there is no alterna M 27 10 days

I took it for 6 days, but on the 7 th day( even before taking it) my hands were shaking and I waa feeling like hypoglycemia. so I didn't take it at all on the 7 th day. after 5 days of quiting it it felt the same feelings, like hungry all the time and so and on rime I woke up at the middle of the night with totally empty feeling in my stomach and I was hungry. the next day it improved I dont feel tired but a little feeling of hunger is always there.

 1  UTI Horrific debilitating medicine prescribed by my doctor and approved by FDA. I *was* a healthy 47 year old mountain hiker until this medicine in December stopped me from walking. My symptoms Ive experienced are as follows: photosensitivity in left eye, confusion, loss of balance, muscle twitching, muscle spasm, tingling, burning, pins and needles, shooting pain in arms, legs, hands, scalp, and feet. Multiple Tendenopathy in both feet, both ankles, both knees, both elbows, both wrists, both thumbs. PAINFUL. Unable to walk without pain or for any distance such as down the driveway. . Must shuffle or hobble to another room. Unable to use hands to chop food or open a water bottle. Hair has fallen out. Rash on chest, neck, back, face, and legs. Neck sounds as if there is bubble wrap twisting in it when I turn my head. Jaw pops. In summary...I have suffered agonizing pain that I had never experienced in my life. It has not gone away. I have had to see Opthamologist, Neurologist, Hematologis Horrific Damaging Medicine. F 5 days

 1  UTI I started taking this drug for a UTI and only made it through 3 days of it. I ended up extremely nauseous, having very bad joint pains, and then I ended up in ICU because of severe chest pain. I seriously thought I was having a heart attack. I was in there for 4 days. During the first 2 days, the doctors wanted to do a couple tests for my heart and forgot to give me the Cipro. By the end of the second day, they realized I hadn't taken Cipro and since I was already in ICU, they gave me one more dose to see what happened. Again, severe chest pain, joint pain worsened, and to top it off, I had a severe anxiety attack and it felt like my bones were breaking. I went home from ICU on the fourth day with a different antibiotic. I will never take this again! F 32 3 days

 1  Uti/bladder infection Was very afraid to take Cipro because of the posts I read online about it. Went to my doctor and asked for something else I also asked if anyone had complained about bad side effects. He said no, he's never had a patient complain. I am a nice girl so I took his word for it. On the first pill I was fine my uti pain was gone. I drank tons if water and used the bathroom a lot. 2nd pill in I had a migraine and very bad gas. 3rd pill in another bad migraine. I then stopped letting my boyfriend and parents control my actions on this matter and stopped taking Cipro. (They were only worried about the infection spreading which I could understand). Now this is my first day off of it and I feel horrible pains through my whole body. My wrists and elbows keep popping and it's scaring me so bad. I have been up crying for a couple hours reading these posts afraid of living with these joint pains. My bf is going to help get some magnesium in me tomorrow in fight of this nasty drug. I'm afraid of what the next two weeks hold for me or even 7 months from now. I'm getting my first apartment going to have an awesome job, wanna get married to my marine and live happy :'( I am afraid of brain side effects since I am already always anxious. I wonder if anyone got through the muscle pains and cramps in a short period of time. I will never let them harm my body like this again. F 23 3 days

I had lack of appetite, blurred vision, lightheadness, dizziness. And, even though I did a whole course of treatment, it did not cure a thing. Not worth taking at all F 38 7 days

 4  Sinus infection I have read many comments ref cipro and do not understand why so many issues with this medicine. It is the only one that has ever helped me with my sinus infections and I have used it approximately 5 times over the past 8 years or so. I do however now understand why my son's doctor will not prescribe for his sinus infection. He has already been on two medicines and nothing has worked. Hopefully there is is something else that will help and not this scary medicine. Now plan on taking him to see a specialists. As for many of these comments... some sounds like doctor negligence.

 1  UTI I took 3.5 pills of Cipro 34 months ago and have since become completely crippled by pain and bed ridden. My ongoing symptoms include: full body tendinopathy, peripheral neuropathy, muscle pain, muscle wasting, muscle weakness, muscle spasms, metatarsalgia, exploding blood vessels, rashes, photosensitivity, photophobia, blurred vision, floaters, taste aberrations, anxiety attacks, dissociation, depression, insomnia, hypersomnia, REM sleep disorder, memory loss, aphasia, brain fog and paradoxical reactions to everything from camomile tea to Gabapentin. This poison has completely destroyed my life. Never ever ever take a fluoroquinolone antibiotic. This stuff is handy out like candy for minor infections when it should be reserved for life or death situations.

 1  Prostatitis I was diagnosed with prostatitis and given Cipro for 30 days. I made it through 21 days of treatment before the side effects nearly crippled me. At day 21, I began to experience pain in my right elbow and ankle. I stopped taking Cipro immediately. Over the next two weeks, tendinitis spread to every joint in my body - literally from my ankles to my jaw. I went from being healthy and active to unable to walk 30 feet without excruciating pain. It has been 3 months and I'm happy to report that I've made a 90% recovery. I still have tendinitis in both of my elbows, but the other joints seem to be ok at this point. I would not recommend this drug as a first line therapy under any circumstance and will never take another antibiotic in this class as long as I live. I'm not a medical doctor, but I believe Cipro should only be used as an absolute last resort in a life or death situation. M 35 4 weeks

 1  Kidney Infection After being on 250 mg for 10 days, by my GP, I began to feel a tightness within the arch of my right foot, I was sent to follow up with a Urologist, who decided to increase the Cipro to 500mgs for an additional 5 days, within an hour of the first 500mg dose,my world spiraled out of control. Both my left,and right foot turned inward at the ankles and contracted like they were shriveling up, the tendons felt like piano wires that were so tight they were about to snap. The same thing happened in my hamstring area behind both knees, my hip flexor area, Groin, and my right hand closed with excruciating pain, the tendons in my palm were so tight I could not open my hand without fear of snapping something. On a scale of 1-10 The "Terror factor" was 12 as I felt tendons contracting and tightening, waiting for a sudden snap. I had NO IDEA what was happening to my body. The worst part was trying to get help: I contacted My General Practitioner telling him what was going on, and what sh Cipro is on the "FDA BLACK BOX LIST" which is in small letters on the prescription packaging . I usually don't read because I trusted my doctor too much in him not giving me something that could adversely destroy my health. Yeah, My Kidney infection is gone, but so is my ability to ever walk without a cane or make a fist . Cipro is a Terror drug, its symptoms seem to return every time you eat infected beef, or dairy products, Because Its synthetic, nano remnants of Cipro remain in the body increasing relapse with the same side effects months later out of nowhere, I eventually realized that my tendons in my right ankle area had disintegrated. Only after this I was told to combat the Cipro by taking "Ionized Magnesium" which was helping with the other tendinitis like effects from this poisonous quinolone. The FDA has to stop pandering to the Drug Companies and Take this Poison off the Market NOW! Let it be known to those of you out there who were "Floxed" by Cipro,- that the Beef and Dairy Industry uses Cipro, and other "Quinolones" to combat bacterial infections in the treatment of 'cow utter disease' in the dairy industry, and "hoof and mouth, and other infections in the beef industry. Quinolones do not cook off when you prepare food, -You get sick all over again with the symptoms every time you eat infected meat, or dairy products from infected cows. AVOID CIPRO, And it's other names within the "Quinolone" list. M 49 12 days

 1  Misdiagnosed UTI I was misdiagnosed with a UTI and prescribed Cipro(POISON). Excruciating pain in my elbows, muscle spasms, possible peripheral neuropathy, and extreme anxiety. I am otherwise very relaxed, but this crap has me on the edge of my seat with worry. Its been 2 days since I've been off this poison, and all I can do is hope that it gets better soon. I am healthy and very active, and I can't afford to be crippled by some pharmaceutical crap that should not exist in the first place. I will NEVER take it again and either should anyone. The folks at Bayer and the pharma reps must have no souls because they know the side effects, but don't care about people and only care about profits. The American Medical industry sickens me and is no doubt run by evil creatures that don't deserve to be called humans. How they can allow this stuff to be on the market is beyond words, and every one of those creatures should be put in prison or better yet, forced to take the drug themselves. I only took it for two days and luckily I found this website with all these accounts of adverse affects. I stopped taking it immediately and threw the rest of it in the garbage where it belongs.On the second day of dosage I went to the gym with a buddy of mine and the next day I started experiencing odd pain in my elbow joints. I have attributed it to lifting weights, and possible tennis elbow. I hope so much thats all it is. Last night I experienced such intense burning pain in my elbows it woke me up. It was some of the worst pain I have ever felt. Please whatever you do, NEVER TAKE CIPRO and I mean NEVER. There are plenty of other AB's out there and natural remedies for most ailments. I wish I had done more research before ingesting this poison. I am trying to remain positive about the situation as I am strong willed and have a great passion for life. I will never let it take that from me. I am way too young to have problems like this, and please do your best to avoid this drug at ALL COSTS M 22 2 days

 1  UTI I am absolutely overwhelmed with the onset of pain in the following joints: elbows, wrists, shoulders, knees & ankles - especially the left Achilles Tendon. I have pain and fatigue in my biceps, triceps, forearms, shoulders and back. I am experiencing shooting nerve pain through 1/2 of my right hand, as well as both forearms and right thigh. I am athletic and normally physically fit, however I am exhausted and debilitated by the simplest of activities. Absolutely horrified about this antibiotic, especially after doing intensive research over the past several weeks.

 1  cipro Who would EVER think I've taken this and now it is thinking perfect sense. I have had UTI's on and off from May 30th 2013 to current December 2013. Occurrence DaVinci robotic surgery for hysterectomy due to cancer. I have had more urinary infections then I can imagine tomorrow I go for a MRI with contrast. I'm going to bring this up to my doctor and find out what's going on. I am appalled on what I've been reading. I get muscle spasms starting at my feet going at my legs and been thinking it was from an injury years ago but as I look on to the current it's been getting worse since I've been on antibiotics. I've never taken any , therapy or radiationas the cancer doctor stated they got it. I was overdose in the hospital 3 times I have my medical records. That's pretty sickening my name put somebody else drugs in your veins and then write stupid report that they had to inject me as I was afraid to do it myself. I was very aware I just could not live I was so out of it. So they figure they can counter act and write a stupid report that I feared doing it so they did it for me. If I would have been able to get up and out of the bed I would have ran their necks. Back to the point of cipro. It is a disgusting situation that I am now going to look into. I got the information off of youtube from a man who stated that cipro has almost killed him. I am afraid to take most antibiotics I do take probiotics 85 billion per pill I make sure I take them 2 per day at the same time. I have lost F 54 10 days

 3  UTI I was prescribed this drug for a UTI. I had taken it in the distant past for sinusitis with no problem, and this time, I had no major problems until Day 6, aside from some minor dizziness here and there. On Day 6, though, I suddenly developed heart palpitations, accompanied by profuse sweating (while shaking like a leaf), and numbness/tingling in my left foot and left hand. Scary stuff! I have two pills left as I was supposed to take this for 7 days, but I will not be taking them! I never read the side effects when I am prescribed a drug, because if something occurs I want to rule out the psychosomatic. So I had no idea, until I developed major symptoms, of what the known side effects even were. I immediately checked, though, and lo and behold, everything I experienced is listed. Thankfully, I didn't get the muscle pains or permanent muscle damage that some others did (at least not yet). Hopefully, 6 days was long enough to cure my UTI. F 56 6 days

 1  Suspected UTI/ Misdiagnosed Nausea and Headache Pins and needles in feet / ankles, progressing upwards to knees Pins and needs in hands Shooting/ Stabbing pain in toes and fingertips Shooting pain in elbow and left shoulder All this after taking 2 days. The Pins and needles started the day after I finished taking them and have persisted (8 days later) The GP doesn't seem concerned at all, I've been to see numerous amounts of pharmacists for their opinions - they too have never come across this before. Starting to get worried about this now. I'm a triathlete and now worried about running due to making this worse. How much longer will this goes on for?? I've warned my wife not to take this drug, as I believe there are safe alternatives out there. Very annoyed at GP as I didn't even have an infection but was given to me as precaution -Now the doctors don't even want to know! Even my wife is starting to think it's all in my head.. very strange drug and potentially very dangerous according to other reviews out there too.. M 30 2 days

To help all with these terrible side effects, a combination of collagen, vitamins especially C, amino acids with minerals is helping me.

 1  Flu Beware of this drug! This drug should be removed from the market, and every person who promotes this drug should be locked up in prison for life. This drug is one of the most dangerous drugs in the entire world -- to be used in life or death situations only -- yet my doctor prescribed this to me for the simple flu. Now I can no longer walk without pain, and on the good days, my legs are completely numb so I can't feel the pain because I can't feel my legs. All of the joints in my body now have arthritis, and I can barely pick up a pencil without pain. This drug turned into an old man at only 40 years old.

 1   Today marks 4 YEARS since I lost my life to Cipro. I took just 12 pills over the course of six days for a suspected UTI and have been completely crippled ever since. I have now spent exactly 1,461 days "living" in bed, as I am no longer able to walk. I'd just turned 30 years old when I was poisoned. Today I'm 34, on disability (keep paying your taxes--I depend on you!) and am back living with my parents. Life as I once knew it is so far gone that I can barely even remember what it felt like to be alive. Every day for me is the exact same & it is both mentally and physically torturous. I'm amazed that I haven't killed myself. No words can begin to describe the HELL that Cipro is capable of unleashing on the human body. If you at all value your body, your health, your mobility, your independence & your quality of life: STAY FAR, FAR AWAY from Cipro and all other antibiotics in its class! They can and do cripple previously healthy individuals for life. My doctor conveniently omitted that fact when he prescribed me Cipro, and yours will too. The FDA is fully aware of what this drug is doing to people and yet they turn a blind eye. The criminals at Bayer Pharmaceuticals deserve death for what they are knowingly doing to the unsuspecting public with this poison. They are murderers.
