 1  uti infection While taking cipro, I experienced bad heart palpitations. Also noticed a lot of tingling in my hands and feet. Felt a sense of fear from the panic attacks due to worrying about the side effects of this drug. Now, my feet have terrible episodes of burning, shooting pain and my heart still experiences palpitations. Shouldn't have NEVER taken this drug and I NEVER will again. I don't recommend this drug for anybody. F 45 2 days

 1  Respiratory infx Just a few hours after taking first dose my heart/pulse started racing causing anxiety. After 2nd dose same thing and went to the Er where the checked an ekg and basic labs and was diagnosed with Panic attack. After taking 4 doses this has been happening constantly, mild headache, no appetite and ridiculous anxiety. I hope the racing pulse and heart rate subsides and I can feel normal again, I've been having to take Ativan twice a day just to get through these side effects. I feel like fucking shit!! F 33 2 days

 1  Nosocomial UTI Had burning pain and weakness in my legs while on the drug, along with some mild fatigue and brain fog. About 3 months later I developed tendon pain, muscle pain, muscle weakness, muscle wasting (still progressing), problems focusing with my eyes, muscle twitching, difficulty staying asleep, bad headaches, peripheral vascular changes. This is a serious drug that seems to have ruined my capacity for intense exercise. I'm still concerned every single day about further developments, almost 4 months later. M 24 3 days

 1  Intestinal infection This drug caused a total breakdown of my body systems, I am still battling 15 years later. Psychiatric issues including depersonalization, paralyzingly anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, paranoia, complete misery. Global detioration of the connective tissue- joints, ligaments, cartilage all compromised. Chronic body pain, deep bone pain, migraines, deafening tinnitus, neuromuscular signal blocking, debilitating fatigue. I spent months on crutches with ruptured ligaments in both knees, the crutching damaged my shoulders. My Achilles was so injuredI could not even push the gas pedal in my car. Chronic insomnia, night sweats, total GI tract disruption, this is a nightmare. Took years to get back to functional. I would have been homeless if not for family support. The damage to my quality of life was so extreme I personally would die before using this drug again. This drug is very insidious, with damage occurring weeks and months post exposure. The medical profession is loathe to admit the drugs they commonly prescribe can do this. Thus, complaints after exposure are assigned another cause. I ended up having 3 exposures before an astute clinician put the puzzle together. It appears that a segment of the population with a mutation in the P450 channel of the liver are susceptible to problems, whereas others may take it without incident. Be very, very careful.

 1  UTI Took my first dose and experienced burning pains in my right foot 2 hrs. later which lasted all day. On finding out this is a 'severe side effect" I notified the prescribing MD. She said it was probably unrelated and to take the next dose as scheduled. I did so, and once again the pain came back, and not only did it not go away, it spread to my other foot. I called back and she changed the RX, but the damage had been done. Three years later, I still have that foot pain, the result of peripheral neuropathy induced by 2 doses of Cipro. I was one of the lucky ones. Since then I've heard of thousands of lives that have been ruined by this drug. Cipro is the Thalidomide of the 21st century and should be removed from the market.

 1  prostatitis Way too many to list. This medication has drastically changed my life. My life will never be the same. It has now been 3 years. Most of my damage came a year after I took the med but I know it is Cipro because I've researched it and I'm a pharmacist. NEVER EVER take this medication. You MAY get away with it but if you don't it will be a decision you will regret for the rest of your life. You will welcome death with open arms. It can cause IRREVERSABLE damage. Nobody can "fix" you if it is a severe reaction. It's only a matter of time before this drug is unmasked and the mitochondria killing chemotherapeutic agent is revealed. Part of the problem is that many can take it with little if any side effects. It's too bad that SO many people will be permanently damaged and lives altered because of drug company greed and FDA corruption. They know this drug is nasty but it will cut into the profit margin if appropriate warnings are included. The FDA is partially funded by...... drug companies...... M 40 14 days

 1   Well it's officially been FIVE YEARS since the criminals at Bayer "Healthcare" savagely ended my life via a mere 12 Cipro pills taken over the course of six days back in '09. Half a decade later and I remain 100% disabled, living my "life" in bed & enduring constant, unrelenting body-wide pain. I am still in shock that this happened to me, and am constantly amazed that I somehow remain above ground. What a LIVING NIGHTMARE this has been. I cannot wait for it to end. If you are on the fence about ingesting Cipro, let me assure you: IT'S NOT WORTH IT. Death is preferable to what this poison is capable of unleashing on you. You don't have to take my word for it--just hit up Google and you'll have no problem finding the horror stories from countless people from all around the world who've had their lives ravaged by this poison masquerading as an antibiotic. Also be aware that Cipro can turn on you at any time--just because you've taken it in the past with no noticeable adverse effects does NOT mean you'll have the same luck going forward. It doesn't work that way. I truly wish nothing but death & destruction for every last employee at Bayer. Toss in the corrupt a-holes at the FDA who approved this poison, and who choose to turn their heads to its aftermath. They are all murderers, and I hope that they suffer terribly sooner rather than later. www.ciproispoison.com M 35 6 days

 1  Possible UTI Pain in feet, fingers, back, neck, shoulder, electrifying feeling in heels. Like being charged with a car battery. Red eyes, inability to walk very far, like maybe 50 yards. It's been over a year and still suffering the same issues and not getting better. Only can rest in bed as even sitting causes pain after awhile. Standing worst of all. My ear sometimes feels stuffed and I hear heartbeats in it. I have issues sleeping, terrible depression, feelings of suicide. I take medication and have sensitivities I never had before, etc... I never knew I would have such viscious side effects... This is probably a drug that is less safe than bath salts. I would rather inhale bath salts for 35 days than take this drug. I think it would be safer. M 37 35 days

 1  Medically provable non-existant UTI It made my heart feel like it was going to stop, so much so I had to be taken off it after 2 days. It also caused agitation and confusion. And I have had heart palpatations since taking it, which is now 5 years and counting. Also, when I picked up my medical records from a physical I'd been given the day prior to being forced to take this by a doctor who was partners with another doctor whose now been arrested by the FBI for harming and killing many patients for profit (in other words, a very unethical doctor), those medical records showed proof I did NOT have a UTI. My point is, unethical doctors do know this is a very dangerous, and possibly lethal, drug. And they've known it since at least 2009. F 45 2 days

 1  UTI After 3 1/2 months still have horrible Achilles' tendon pain. Used to be a runner , but Cipro has almost completely stopped that for me . Prescribing doctor discounts the side effects and thinks it is solely caused by running. She is not a runner! Have referral now for physical therapy. Will never take Cipro or Levaquin again!

 1  Mucus in stool Extreme dizziness, muscle fatigue, peripheral nerve damage as though my equilibrium was damaged. Could barely walk, think, or talk in normal capacity. Tingling in hands and feet, pain in both feet, left shoulder, tendons feel like piano cords. Severe tinnitus in both ears, anxiety like panic attacks. Emotionally unstable, thoughts of suicide, and feel the damage is irreversible. Two days after taking one 500 MG I had already been planning for my last drive to the woods swan song . Had to go the ER on Sunday blood and urine test and both came back good. Most severe confusion and clumsiness I've ever dealt with.Took the medication back to the pharmacy and told them to take this off the shelf immediately, and that it kills people. He laughed at me and said they prescribe this more than any other drug. Clearly they have not been educated about how serious this debilitating drugs can affect people. Been taken off work due to this and unable to perform normal activity. Also a couple hours ag After learning more about this the Pharmaceutical companies need to make sure that whom ever prescribe this give a full and complete warning of possible and serious side effects. Three days since taking it I have to have co-workers pick me up and drive me to my appointments. Every day since I took one pill I hope and pray I'll wake up better, but nothing yet. Four days ago I was able to bench press 375 lbs easy and was running 2 miles a day 5 days a week. I'm a 34 year old fit muscular male. I'm 6'1' 230 lbs everybody knows me as the machine, and an absolute work horse, today I couldn't even do 5 push ups. I had to walk two blocks back and forth to the clinic twice today and that was just about all I could do. Good thing I have great friends they picked me up and took me where I needed to go. This life stopping pill should be completely removed from innocent people. After this experience, and if I come away from this and get back to normal, I will devote my time to making sure this poison gets removed from the market. Any person who gets prescribed Cipro please read this and understand that it can ruin your whole life.If you go to the doctor about these symptoms they will completely ignore what you say and leave you feeling helpless. Thus because they just go with what they know, or what they are lead to believe. The doctors are not to blame, the companies that make this stuff need to wake the fuck up a realize that one is not for all. In conclusion Cipro or any other Floroq M 34 1 days

 1  Uti Prescribed for uti 500 mg ciprofloxacin 1 pill every 12 hours. I took the pill with food, and drank enough water in one day that my pee turned close to clear within a few hours. I'd been told to avoid sun and stop taking my daily vitamins. I followed every instruction to the t. Within hours of the first and only pill I got extremely cold, had tooth pain, then became overly exhausted which worsened through the evening, aches that made me want to cry. Then my joints started cracking like when I'd move my fingers or lift my knee. Felt like the worst flu I'd ever had. I didn't take the next pill. That happened within the first and only pill on Friday evening. Today, Monday, my right knee where I have a floating knee cap (but hasn't really hurt since I was young) flared up like the dickens. I have random shooting pains in my arms and legs. Lightly sore like getting over a cold or sleeping too long. I started taking my daily vitamin again today. Treating the uti with d-mannose and garlic. Avoiding all but water and was already avoiding naisd's (actually all meds) even prior to prescription. Hoping to heal, these stories seem tragic.

 1  Urinary tract infection Two hours after taking my first dose, I got burning pain in my right foot which lasted into the evening. On finding out this was a potential severe side effect, I called the on-call doctor who told me side effects with Cipro were rare and I should probably take my next dose as scheduled. When the dr. who prescribed it returned the following morning, I told her what happened, and she said the same thing. So I took the next dose as scheduled and 2 hours later the pain came back and did not go away. She switched me to Bactrim but the damage was done. Over the next few weeks the pain spread up the leg to my calf and achilles tendon, then to the other leg.. I also had popping of my knee joints, and during the first few weeks after taking the Cipro I also had panic attacks and crying spells. Took the better part of 2 years before I had any improvement. I still have the nerve pain in my feet. Two years of painful side effects from just TWO doses of this drug. After doing research I found out I was one of the lucky ones, I could have been incapacitated for life. This drug is the 21st century's thalidomide and should be banned immediately. M 54 1 days

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.

 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  ear infection My hip has been extremely sore as if I injured it somehow. I narrowed it down to the fact that this all started when I started taking cipro. Antiinflammatory drugs are NOT helping. 39 7 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  To prevent a UTI after cystoscopy Headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, difficulty swallowing, vivid nightmarish dreams, extreme fatigue Have taken cipro 6 times after cystoscopies for bladder cancer checkups. This last time I got very ill with headache, dizziness, swollen throat, fatigue, loss of appetite. I ended up in urgent care and now have been proclaimed to have had a " reaction to cipro". I will never take this drug again. Am hoping the effects wear off. It has been 2 weeks and today was the first day i felt a bit better. M 59 3 days

 1   BEWARE of anyone claiming they have a cure for the horrific & often crippling/disabling side effects of this poisonous antibiotic. A cure does not exist. It's bad enough that we were poisoned for $$ in the first place, and then to have snake oil salesmen descend upon us once we've fallen ill, well that's just disgusting and disgraceful. F

 1  Greek Dr prescribed viral infection I should have listened to my intuition, you don't need antibiotics for a viral infection - but felt so ill abroad on holiday - trusted GP but now experiencing dreadful pain in wrists and ankle joints, swelling, fatigue, and anxiety. Back in UK Dr advised to cease taking, but didn't say how long these side effects will last. I'm exhausted and feel like I've aged 20 years overnight. F 56 3 days

 1  Kidney Systemic Tendon & ligament pain and disability. Central & Peripheral Nervous System problems. Neurological issues. Unable to walk, stand, or lay on my side. Excruciating pain in limbs, and feet. Weight loss, gum loss, hair loss. Trouble using arms and hands. Severe horrific experience. Only took 3 tablets. Set off auto-imune response for Sjorgrens. Dreadful and terrifying experience. I am now able to walk, stand, work, exercise again. Anyone severely injured, or disabled is welcome to contact me if you want to learn about the safe/ care I received that got me walking again. This experience led me to the reality of the FDA & Pharma practices of profit from knowingly disabling thousands & thousands of people for their profit. I like so many of us are no longer putting myself or family in their hands again. F 51 1.5 days
