    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.

    Ciprofloxacin for Urinary tract infection

    Immediately after taking the first pill I developed muscle weakness, which is particularly pronounced in the thighs, so that I sometimes have difficulty climbing stairs. In addition, since taking Cipro, I have been extremely weak, lacking in drive, have balance and speech problems (exchanged words). A massive daytime tiredness has also set. At night I have massive sleep disorders. In the winter I already got Cipro because of a nose bladder infection. At that time, I was suffering from a postpartum depression and taking Cipro I briefly had signs of psychosis and the depression was MASSIV worsened. Whether Cipro at least worked then I do not remember. Unfortunately, I had not written down the name of the drug and have stupidly taken it again now. My conclusion is: the bladder infection is not gone even after 5-day use, the side effects have remained, so I am currently not able to work. Stay away from this car!

    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 Urinary tract infection

    Have this drug in March this year by my family doctor because of a urinary tract infection prescribed. First I took 500mg twice a day for 5 days, then the treatment was extended by another 5 days. Already while taking the first side effects showed: internal restlessness, Durchschlafprobleme, anxiety, depression, stomach and intestinal complaints (mucus and blood in the stool). Did not smell the treatment but (which I should have done better). After completing the intake it was really thick! My depression got even worse in end-time mood and that at the age of 36, plus muscle and tendon pain (could not even carry a backpack on my shoulder anymore). The stomach and intestinal complaints turned out to be a full-blown gastritis after a reflex (had no problems in this area before) and on the tongue I also got a nice fungal infection. Now 3 months later and 200 € poorer (which I was allowed to spend against the fungal infection and to build my broken intestinal flora) I’m still not completely free from side effects. Because of the depression and anxiety I am looking for some time now a therapist. For the muscle and joint pain I go for 2 months to massage and physiotherapy. Anyone can only guess beforehand to know exactly whether this drug is the right one for him, for me this type of drugs are no longer in question because my life and my health is too important. I used to tolerate other antibiotics well.
