    Ciprofloxacin for Diverticulitis

    After 2.5 days, equivalent to 5 tablets, I had to stop due to the side effect of taking the drug. The following side effects occurred: pain in the upper abdomen, heart and left shoulder. Very large mood swings with depressive symptoms. Restlessness, insomnia and spontaneous fatigue. Chills with subsequent sweat attacks. Total loss of appetite After stopping taking it took another 5 days until all symptoms were almost gone. After the 3rd day I got very violent stomach cramps for several hours, then chills, had to lie in bed and could not move because of pain in the stomach were very large. At night my body began to sweat out the poisons and a penetrating stink of the whole body developed. After another day passed, where a significant improvement was recorded, bloating on the program with repeated sweating attacks and repeated complaints of the left shoulder joint and heart pains, but were not so strong. During the whole procedure, I lost 3 kg, but I’m in good hands to have everything over. The actual problems with the diverticula disappeared after one day. In retrospect, I have to realize that I was somehow mentally as in a bleak, accompanied by listlessness and very whining mood. Thank God there is still the naturopathy! Incidentally, only by a lot of drinking (about 3-4 liters a day) of chamomile, peppermint, linseed, fennel, and herbal teas the body was able to win against this poison successfully.

    Ciprofloxacin for Bacterial infection

    After having traveled abroad, I had to have a bacterial infection (Malta fever) treated, because I reacted to the antibiotic doxycycline with enormous myopia and head pressure, I was switched to ciproflxacin, which I had to take 14 days. In the course of the treatment, the intake led to very severe depressive moods (gratuitous crying, overwhelming grief), pain in the feet, foot and calf cramps and circulatory disorders, mild headache, mild nausea. The bacterial infection was well resolved. If one weighs this for and against, the side effects were to endure. The consequences of the untreated infection would have been far worse.

    Ciprofloxacin for Prostatitis

    I got ciprofloxacin for 20 days because of a prostate infection. I stopped taking it after 15 days because I got extreme side effects that are not gone after nearly 6 months. The worst are depression, anxiety, the skin burns all over the body, sleep disorders, joint pain, fatigue, etc …… I would take no chinolon such as ciprofloxacin more. I do not know how long the side effects will continue and as I am there are many, better take another AB.

    Ciprofloxacin for Bronchitis (chronic)

    Treatment of chronic bronchitis, application: 6 tablets in the morning / evening each 500mg Within a few days developed in my chest and back pain, loss, sometimes cough and runny nose. After I went to the doctor, he prescribed me Cirpofloxacin 500mg. A few hours after the first dose, the pain was almost gone, but about 6 hours after taking it I began to cry for some unintelligible reason. This increased after taking another tablet. Now and then there was a chirping in the left or right ear, dizziness and pain in the legs. Anxiety, nightmares, depression were the worst thing in my eyes. I did not see any meaning in my life, cried for over an hour at times. I felt anxious, as if I would never get well again. I think that the side effects of depression increase in patients who are already a bit stunted.4 days later I developed diarrhea. My doctor recommended me to sell the tablets and got a new AB. Another doctor told me that for her generally it would seem that the dosage would have been too high for me. 1000mg a day, to 174 cm and 48 KG would be very much. Nevertheless, they were effective. After 4 days of taking my lungs and bronchi are free and I have become a non-smoker.

    Ciprofloxacin for Fever

    Almost all of the side effects described in the package insert have occurred after only 3 tablets. Due to severe nerve and muscle pain, I went to the hospital. Blood levels were very poor (especially the liver levels increased to over 400), and inflammatory levels were catastrophic. Knee, foot and shoulder joints and some fingers swelled and I was unable to walk for several days. After a 10-day hospitalization, I was released. Blood levels have returned to normal within about 3 months. Muscle and nerve pain occur again and again, as well as depressive moods. Stay away from ciprofloxacin! It is probably prescribed by the doctors, especially with urinary tract infections, because it is very cheap!

    Ciprofloxacin for Sinusitis

    Because of persistent antritis my doc had ciprofloxacin prescribed me. During the treatment I had no problems with side effects. Only a week later, pain arose in the thumb joints and the Achilles tendon. Later, there was painful inflammation, swelling, and clicking in all the fingers and both wrists, combined with insomnia, lack of concentration, depression, and depressive moods – to an extent that I would never have thought possible as a confident person. For three months I already suffer from the problems. Although the swelling and pain in the fingers and wrists are decreasing, the dull pain and cracking as well as the inflammation in the Achilles tendon continue. At work and in everyday life, I am still severely restricted and sports are still out of the question. So far, unfortunately, nobody could tell me if the symptoms will disappear completely.

    Ciprofloxacin for Urinary tract infection

    Hello, I took 250mg twice a day for seven days because of a urinary tract infection ciprofloxacin. Already on the second day the symptoms started: insomnia, depression, hot flashes, skin rash, tachycardia. At first, I could not connect to the antibiotic until I felt so bad that I then discontinued it. The bad thing is that the side effects do not go away. There are now 5 weeks over and new problems are added: Tingling on the skin, especially hands and feet, the right cheek and the eye are numb and swollen, sometimes no strength in the hands to make a fist and a constant dizziness, making one unable to think and act clearly. Much has improved in the meantime like tachycardia and hot flashes. I do not give up the hope that everything will go away again, but no doctor can help me even more and I am currently in a crisis, of course, with no foreseeable end. I’ve read a lot of similar reviews here and of course can only WARNING BEFORE THIS MEDICAMENT. You get something about the practice pushed WITHOUT DECLARATION, without hints, and then no one wants to have known anything and you will be referred to the leaflet and no one can imagine that comes through this drug. There is a The Flox Report QUINOLONE ANTIBIOTICS TOXICITY. March 2007 as PDF in English for reading and downloading. You will find yourself with his problems guaranteed. Unfortunately, one is also confronted with the reality and looks depending on the duration and intake of Cipro very very bad. THE NW LASTING !!!

Ca 2 months after taking pain in muscles and tendons, especially in the legs, tingling such as pinpricks under the skin, muscle twitching, suddenly extreme dandruff on the scalp, sometimes with itching and massive hair loss. itching and burning in the genital area. Muscle problems increased during exercise, which is why I have been unable to do sports for months, and I started doing sports again shortly before. Tiredness and depressive phase. Stomach pain and digestive problems The drug was prescribed to me because the doctor suspected a bowel inflammation. At that time, I was at that time for about three months finally my acid blocker going on and I would finally go well without the Cipro.

    Ciprofloxacin for Stomach-intestinal infection-

    PLEASE DO NOT TAKE! I have been prescribed this antibiotic because of a gastrointestinal intolerance. 2x daily 500mg. Initially, I only had heartburn, nausea, headaches and was unpowered. Unfortunately, these conditions were caused by my infection. Unfortunately, I thought wrong. On the day of the last tablet, I suddenly got Depressed Conditions. The next day I got my first panic attack. It continued with anxiety which lasted the whole day. In the first few weeks after weaning, I quickly lost weight due to anxiety and panic attacks and could not eat anything. I was very impotent and could do nothing more and just lie in bed. When I could sleep, I woke up very early in the morning with a bad heart rate. Of the listed side effects, anxiety and panic attacks are worst for me. It’s been 6 weeks since I got my first symptoms. I am still afraid and have panic attacks. I do not recommend this medication in any way. It is a Ersatzantibiothikum which should be taken only in extreme emergency cases (if no other drug helps). There is information on this devil drug especially on English speaking websites.

    Ciprofloxacin for Sinusitis

    I got it prescribed for sinusitis. 2 × 250mg daily. After 3 days, I first had a violent panic attack in the night. I had already noticed depressive moods the day before. My legs ached and tingled so hard that I could barely walk. Now 3 days after discontinuing the drug, I still have terrible skin burning and depression … I hope for speedy recovery.

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    I was prescribed ciprofloxacin in the dosage 2x500mg per day ON SEDUCED (!!!). Because of frequent urination, I had been to the doctor who prescribed the devil’s stuff for me, without, of course, a word of warning. Likewise the pharmacist. During the intake I did not feel any side effects except for a minimal elbow pull. That was on the third day, unfortunately I did not identify this as a side effect. I took the drug for 10 days and had no big problems. On day 2 after stopping the meal, the horror started: my knees swelled and hurt so much that I could not walk for three days. The skin of my arms and legs felt like she was on fire. Two days later, all the joints of my body were easily inflamed and hurt and I experienced the most severe depression with suicidal thoughts and rumflennen at home. All joints crack very loud, which they have not done before. Today, 41 days after the recipient, the burning of the skin is now gone, as well as the depression. The knees and tendons still hurt, but it has improved a bit. I feel absolutely poisoned by this drug and I’m still far from being as good as I was before taking it. As a slight improvement trend can be seen, I have not given up the hope that I may get out of the case without permanent damage and lifelong pain. Keep your fingers crossed. Let’s see how it looks in 3 months. I would like to warn all readers most urgently. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics are often prescribed for urinary tract infections by urologists. If you are just a little more sensitive than me to these medications, you can turn a few tablets into a cripple for the rest of their lives. Whether I will recover completely, is in the stars. I can only advise you to take !!! !!! NEVER !!! An antibiotic from the group of fluoroquinolones or gyrase inhibitors, if it is not really about life and death. There are enough alternative antibiotics that also work in the urinary tract and do not have these life-destroying side effects. And please do not believe your doctor and pharmacist, if they tell you that you should not do so and bravely take her Ciprofloxacin! Neither my doctor who prescribed me the drug, nor the pharmacist who sold it to me had even the slightest idea of the side effect potential of fluoroquinolones! Without a word of warning, I was released with a poison. Despite reading the leaflet, I had no chance to escape the side effects, they only really started after the completed intake! FINGERS OFF THIS DEVIL!!!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    Steer clear of this medication. I used this stuff 4-5 times a year for bladder infections 5 years a year, without linking my symptoms to it. I have consulted countless doctors, all could not find the cause of the symptoms. Especially pain plagues me, in the muscles, Achilles tendons, in the intestine, in the stomach, knee joints and others. Other symptoms include: blurred vision, dizziness, nausea, hallucinations, depression, constant fatigue, anxiety disorders, hair loss, respiratory distress. My life has changed completely. I have changed. I am no longer able to participate in normal life, such as Do housework.
