    Ciprofloxacin for Pharyngitis

    I received the medication for 5 days against a fairly severe pharyngitis. Although I was able to swallow again, but woke up on the second day of treatment with a heavily overgrown / furry and irritated tongue. There was also other pain when swallowing, this time close to the stomach, a heavy pressure as if the bite would get stuck … very uncomfortable. In addition, I noticed an ever-increasing heartburn and some mild palpitations. Generally, I would not recommend this drug for such a purpose. There are much more compatible drugs here; Ciproflox should be the last solution. I still suffer today, 2 days after deposition, nor to heartburn and circulation problems.

    Since ingestion I have a proven tongue, bitter-sour taste, no appetite. This is now over 5 weeks ago and no improvement in sight. This remedy has probably damaged me in the long run. I can not recommend it because of that! – Incidentally, my doctor seems to prescribe this remedy almost for every kinkerlitzchen, which is highly irresponsible! Ciprofloxacin should only be taken if other antibiotic drugs stop working, as I have read. Stay away from this drug, which has such serious side effects! In any case, I reserve the right to draw the consequences – i.a. possible change of doctor!

    Ciprofloxacin for Bronchitis (acute)

    I got this medicine prescribed for acute bronchitis and after three or four days the pain started in both Achilles tendons. Since then, I still have recurring years later problems with my left Achilles tendon. I would never take this medicine again and recommend it to anyone! And although I have followed the instructions in the leaflet to avoid taking dairy and milk products before (2 hours) and after (4 hours) taking the medicine and not drinking coffee or tea, I have a deep brown get hairy tongue. Pretty disgusting. Luckily, these side effects quickly disappeared. The problems with the Achilles tendon, which limit my daily life and sporting activities, have remained! So, keep away from fluoro-quinolones, e.g. Ciprofloxacin!

    Ciprofloxacin for Cystitis

    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.
