    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

    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.

    For me it is still such a terrible memory of this drug, I have kept the shafts as a warning. on the 5th day of ingestion (I should take 1 tablet for 10 days), it started with violent spasmodic abdominal pain, tremors, cold sweats, extreme weakness within a few minutes, circulation at the bottom, diarrhea that was unstoppable, then sudden Blood better bleeding in the stool. Today I still wonder how I got over this night, my doctor later explained to me that my body was dealing with a pseudomembranous colitis. NEVER again this drug!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cold

    had to take the drug because of a severe cold, because my ear was already so tight that I hardly heard anything. After 3 days I woke up and my hands were swollen, I looked like a michelin male, my whole body was a single itch. So doctor visited, discontinued and get a cortisone cream prescribed. The next few days I was still happy with a very strong persistent diarrhea and the itching went back after several days.

    Side effects: Swelling; Itching; Diarrhea

    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 Flu

    Before taking it I felt better, had only really strong purulent cough and runny nose – but was so far still mobile. After the first intake, I did not get out of bed for 9 hours. Drowsiness, nausea, mild stomach cramps, diarrhea, fatigue and the like; Fatigue, head pressure, night sweats, loss of appetite – I was really dirty. Then came the fever. These symptoms or side effects showed different degrees of intensity during the 5 days of intake. Now, 2 days after weaning, while my cold and cough is still not completely gone but I’m doing much better.

    hello ,, So I should take the tablets because of enlarged lymph nodes under the axilla, since I have just broken off this morning, that is, the last did not take any more because of all the side effects I can not really say obs helped, I would like to say is still the same size swollen … but I have the side effects really thrown off course even though you have to take only 2 a day and the 5 days long ,,, initially I was dizzy and then I got diarrhea (every day). .. yesterday I suddenly hurt my legs, which continues to this day, and when I was still totally sick this morning, I had finally enough of the nose and have thrown the last in the garbage ,,, is not on the advice of Doctors but I did not care at the moment … so I am with long ,,, but his experiences should everyone make himself, after all, most antibiotics have any side effects, and everyone tolerates this otherwise … maybe I am very hypersensitive to these, which, as I said, does not have to be with you … lg

    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 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 Urinary tract infection

    Was prescribed due to a strong urinary tract infection. After first use (2 x 250 mg) insomnia, joint pain, itching all over and nausea. Diarrhea and severe nausea the next morning, accompanied by abdominal cramps and pain in the limbs. In the evening blood and mucus in the stool. After extensive research, I have seen that this drug causes alarmingly often strongest NWs, which sometimes even to irreversible tendon and nerve damage, etc. have led (see also other reports here). Must stop the drug and tomorrow wg for emergency service. the blood in the stool and my now swollen knees, which hurt a lot. I have never had such strong Nws on a drug and have never felt so bad when taking it. Will not try it in the future, no second time.
