    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 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 Stomach-intestinal infection-

    I had a gastrointestinal infection and without waiting for the blood result, I should start with a 2 x 500 mg intake on the same day the doctor visit. What I think, without diagnosis, generally questionable. My gastrointestinal discomfort had actually already subsided and the unpleasant, associated limb pain and fever, I had with a painkiller under control. On the second day, when taking the 4th tablet, there was an unpleasant noise in my ear, a feeling like behind a glass bell, the next night I spent almost sleepless and strong sweating and restless. In the morning, my gums were swollen and badly painful, my lip had thick cold sores and this condition continues today, 36 hours after the last tablet intake on. In addition I have head and neck pain. After taking the 4th tablet, because the ear noises were so scary to me and I felt really ill, I stopped taking it. By phone I could reach my doctor and also no ambulance, since it was Saturday and to the hospital, to the ambulance, I did not want. I would not have taken the antibiotic anyway. All in all, I have to say that I am quite stunned by my doctor, the whole therapy seems to me, as if you want to drive out the devil with the Belzebub, or vice versa. I’ve never experienced anything like that before and I get annoyed with myself in retrospect, that I was so gullible again and got involved in the whole matter.

    Side effects: Neck pain; Sweat; Unrest; Insomnia; Headache

    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 Urinary tract infection

    I took 2 x daily Ciprofloxacin 250 mg for 5 days because I had a urinary tract infection. From the second intake day, I had the feeling of being completely beside me. I was very irritable and restless, had a bad headache and could hardly sleep. Then there were sweats, a general feeling of weakness, and an indefinable pull in both groins and the rectum. My family doctor closed up to a certain state of rest anything but side effects of ciprofloxacin … The urinary tract infection is well cured, the urine was o. Today, 10 days after discontinuation of the drug, fortunately all non-side effects are gone. I will definitely not take Ciprofloxacin and would always advise against this drug!

In addition, slight numbness in the right arm. I never take the stuff again and can not recommend it.

    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.

Therefore, I can not say anything about the effect.

    Ciprofloxacin for Urinary tract infection

    Already 7 months before because of a urinary tract infection had said antibiotic taken with tolerable side effects such as diarrhea, headache and some nausea. This time again for 5 days with morning and evening 500 mg. During the night from day 3 to day 4 I woke up with nausea, stomachache and restlessness. Ten minutes later violent cramps with shortness of breath (shortness of breath as after an enormous athletic effort). Was paralyzed, could not move or call for help. Then circulatory failure with cold sweat, trembling, anxiety. Approximately 20 minutes fight against fainting, then absolute weakness, freezing and tiredness. The tiredness continues until today (5th day).
