    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I have been prescribed Ciprofloxacin for the treatment of cystitis by my GP (250mg, 2x a day). Previously, I had already received the antibiotic cotrimoxazole because of the same condition, which I tolerated very well and which also helped against the inflammation. So I assumed the Cipro would look similar and did not think much about taking it. The package leaflet lists the usual possible side effects that can be used to live well during treatment, as well as nothing that makes one alert. But after the first tablet, I felt strong changes. My arms felt heavy, my elbows hurt as if you were stabbing them with a knife. I felt dizzy, a short time later, a strong physical agitation, I could not sit still. Also, I was suddenly very easily irritable and aggressive (otherwise I am a more relaxed and calm person), broke down in tears for no reason and felt otherwise just sick. After the second pill I felt a tug in my thighs and back, my palms burning and I had a bad taste in my mouth. I felt tired but could not or did not sleep very well (during the entire treatment period). After the third tablet I had the impression that my fingers were swollen. Alarmed, I called in practice and told about my previous reactions. We weighed down, normal side effects, I should read the package insert. In the meantime, the treatment with Cipro had an effect on my work, I was no longer on the line, was unfocused and just stood next to me. Word-finding difficulties (spoken and written) and forgetfulness annoyed me in addition. My neck was cramping, my knees were inflamed and my knees were somehow taut. On the third day the diarrhea began, I had constant pressure on my stomach and ran half an hour away from the toilet. Meanwhile my fingers and toes hurt, also here I had the feeling of inflammations. On the penultimate day my whole body ached, most of the legs (calves and knees), the running was difficult, the corridor up a staircase made me very hard. I had spasms in the soles of my feet. Lying or sitting in one position did not take long, then new pain appeared at the pressure-loaded areas. The last use of the drug is over a month ago. As I write this, my fingers and wrists ache, my back and chest, and my legs still hurt. I hope the effect soon disappears. If you get the drug prescribed, ask your doctor what it is all about. If in doubt, prescribe a lighter remedy, I would never take Cipro for such a small bladder infection again!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    Cipro prescribed for recurrent cystitis. Fast recovery. Pain in the right foot after a few days (tendinitis of the plantar tendon), joint pain. The joint pain lasted for many weeks in the hand, the tendonitis has been plaguing for months now. However, I did not think that the side effects were / are and have now again taken Cipro (again cystitis). Well exacerbation of tinnitus, nightmares (actually listed in the leaflet!), Extreme fatigue and laxity. That was the last time I took this horror drug. Why is not this withdrawn from circulation?

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    Good day, take the antibiotics now only 3 days 2 times a day 250mg. After the second pill there was a slight diarrhea and now on the third day I have muscle pain in my legs and the whole body a feeling similar to a cold. moreover, the antibiotic causes stomach pain and bloated abdomen, such problems, except diarrhea, have never had with antibiotics. Will tomorrow ask the doctor if I can sell it. I’ve never had that kind of thing. So far I have tolerated antibiotics such as Clindasol etc. very well, but that is enough for me after 3 days. I do not think that for 7 days, because I also suffer from fibromyalgia and anyway know long-term pain, but even more I do not have.

    Side effects: Bloating; Diarrhea; Muscle aches

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I took Cipro 7 days. After that, nothing was the same as before. I got muscle pain that was from the other star, I have not had such pain in my whole life! In addition, the pain and other symptoms of cystitis remained (no more bacteria), I got a vulvodynia, depression and lost 20 kg! Tachycardia, palpitations, diarrhea, histamine intolerance. The vulvodynia and the bladder pain I have since taking, which is over 2 years ago. It improves very slowly. Cipro -NIE again! There would have been alternatives. My trust in doctors is permanently destroyed.

    I was prescribed ciprofloxacin 250 (2 times daily, 3 days) due to cystitis. After the 5th tablet began to itch on my face, especially the ears and eyes. I still finished the medication, my bladder infection was well cured. The itching continues to this day (12 days after the last tablet) and has spread. On the 3rd day after finishing the therapy, my joints began to hurt, so that I could not walk or reach. The pain wander, every day something else hurts. They are becoming more intense. My hands feel swollen and numb, it itches and I have a hives on my arms. Cipro works, but my body defends itself by all means against the drug.

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    Three days ago, I took 250 tablets of ciprofloxacin because of a bladder infection. I am still shocked by the serious side effects. At first my left arm began to burn and tingle. Then began an unbearable itching in soles and palms, which are still swollen. In addition, there was pain in both arms and shoulders, burning of the skin all over, and pain in the tendons in the legs. These also stop. How can such a drug still be on the market?

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I had taken the third to last tablet at dinner that evening, and about half an hour later, I noticed an itch in the hands, which rapidly went up the arms. When I took off my sweater, fearing that I would have crawling cattle’s sleeves, I first got a shock. Red spots covered my skin, which swelled up in these places. Hives After a call to the medical emergency then came an ambulance and I was injected with Cordison. The next morning the spots were gone, the itching remained. In the evening the red spots were back and I had to let the doctor again inject cortisone. Nothing is left, but every time my hands itch, I get paranoia and have to look for red spots. brrr

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    This is bodily injury!! Have had problems with my tendons and joints for 2 years after taking ciprofloxacin. All previous therapies were unsuccessful. It is a devil stuff. My son took Cipro for 4 days and suffered severe pain in the Achilles tendon. I think that would have helped with a Gehöhrgangsgangszündung also another drug. Funny that many doctors completely underestimate this side effect. I will warn all people around me about this drug!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    After 10 days of taking 1,000 mg of ciprofloxacin, extreme side effects began with tremors in the hands, feeling weak, tiredness, paralysis. I immediately discontinued the medication. In the following months, countless other symptoms, especially cardiovascular problems (tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmia, high blood pressure), fatigue, anxiety, blurred vision, pain in tendons, hair loss, lump feeling in the chest, tightness in the chest, ear noises, muscle twitching. With the help of infusions and magnesium as well as some dietary supplements, I got that under control after about 10 months. I have published my experiences at .

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I have been prescribed by my doctor for cystic fibrosis 250mg Ciprofloxacin. I wondered a bit, because that’s not the first choice, but maybe I’ll get it now because a few weeks ago I had one, but I brought it away with tea. I should take the drug twice a day for five days. A few hours after the first tablet, I got a lot of drills, sometimes just looking empty and unable to concentrate. I took the second tablet in the evening and began to inquire about ciprofloxacin. When I read the shocking things on the internet, I briefly wondered if I should vomit to get the second tablet out of my body, but then I thought to myself, you do not have to exaggerate it and it was just the second tablet. I should have done it, because then I got strong muscle and joint pain, numbness, especially in the left arm and heart racing. I had no magnesium (which is supposed to help) there and so I went on shaky legs totally dissolved in the emergency room. Since one said that would be a common drug and it can not come from. I first had to wait forever until a doctor came. Also, I told her about the ingestion and the now occurring symptoms and pointed out that there is a black box warning in the US, because even she just weighed down. In the end, she labeled me as a simulant and when I said after my state exam I’m just a pharmacist and I know what I’m talking about just blocking her more. I was given Lorazepam for reassurance, blood was taken (everything went well), and an ECG was recorded for supraventricular arrhythmia. She did not take that seriously, either, and I think that’s probably because I’m so stressed out. As a result, the day after I still have muscle aches and joint pain, and I hope that will go away. Conclusion: Stay away from the fluoroquinolones, unless it’s about life and death!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I was prescribed Ciprofloxacin because of a bladder infection. After taking the second tablet, I had a severe headache and my thighs hurt so much that I immediately discontinued the tablets. After two days, I was plagued with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea, which continues today after I had already stopped the medication for 4 days, and I have severe pain in my right back and around the liver. Will, if the symptoms do not subside, go to the doctor tomorrow. Anyway, I would not take this medicine anymore. My cystitis is now controlled by teas.

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    In the US, the FDA warns against this antibiotic. I am young and healthy, but still have (as it turns out like many others) suffered staccal NW. Tendon and sliding pain. Bad headaches and other side effects like anxiety. I’ve never really experienced something like that and did not think it possible. The information on the frequency of NW are WRONG, according to my research on the Internet, there are recent studies the much more frequent occurrence of NW dalegen.

    Side effects: Members hurt; Crave pain; Headache

    After 5 days of treatment, most of the complaints and also the fever were gone. But then I had some new complaints! Stomach pain, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea and severe headache. The gastrointestinal problems continue today, 2 weeks after the end of the therapy! I will not take this antibiotic again.

    I have unilateral, severe headache. Pain on the left side of my face. In the back of the ear and in the jaw. Sensory disorders on the left side of the face (esp. Cheek). Dry mouth, white tongue. Bloating. I’m not feeling well with the drug on day 3. (500 mg). I would not take it again. It’s a hammer medicine for a bladder irritation. Can not understand the doctor.

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    Due to a bladder infection I got on suspicion ciprofloxacin prescribed. Since shortly before the weekend [Thursday] and the antibiogram was expected only on Mondays, I should start directly with the intake. Within 30 minutes, I got arrhythmia, excruciating pain in the neck and cervical spine. Complaints in the feet and legs, so that I was hardly able to wear shoes, because these sensations hardly bearable. In addition, side effects such as blurred vision, dizziness, abnormal headache, joint pain on fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulder joints and hips were constant. After taking the second dose, I stopped the treatment. My family doctor was and still is completely overwhelmed with the side effects and can not help … there is no therapy! And unfortunately, the doctors are also not up to date and prescribe drugs for the side effects that are absolutely contraceptive and further aggravate the problem. Mitochondrial toxicity is an undesirable side effect of treatment with fluoroquinolones. Fluoroquinolones interfere with the metabolism of cell organelles (mitochondria). Mitochondrial damage, especially in the context of myopathies and neuropathies, can be observed. 7 months after taking it I still have problems with the tendons, especially the feet, the Achilles tendon, the shoulder girdle and the hip / pelvic area. In addition, various inflammations, currently z.b. Inflammation of the periosteum on the ring and middle finger, head joint / neuritis with periosteum irritation, inflammation of the cervical spine. Pain and cracking in the knees, daily, normal only possible with permanent pain. Weakness in the arms and pain in the shoulder girdle, various neuralgias and others of the trigeminal nerve, tinnitus, dizziness The cardiac arrhythmias have gone as far back, whereby here certainly the intake of high-dose magnesium and additionally Q10 and potassium plays a role. Partly the pulse shoots up to 168 and isolated HRS are noticeable, but significantly less than during and shortly after ingestion.
