    Ciprofloxacin for Urinary tract infection

    My son received ciprofloxacin in a urinary tract infection. On the day of the first dose pain in the foot (heel) was noticeable. These got worse. On the 4th day we discontinued the drug. The urinary tract infection is gone, it remained a bad joint inflammation with pain in the tendons and ligaments of the ankle. After examination by an orthopedist / surgeon (chief physician of a hospital) this tried us to make it clear that not the drug Ciprofloxacin has triggered this, but you could even get such a joint inflammation. This time coincided coincidence. Since my son has never had any arthritis, he was not interested. For me is clearly the cause of this joint inflammation the drug Ciprofloxacin and it is a bottomless impudence as a patient not to be taken seriously. My son is lying flat now because he can only move his foot in severe pain. The behavior of the doctor catastrophic. It is known that this drug has strong side effects and it is still prescribed. The urinary tract infection could have been treated with another antibiotic.

    Ciprofloxacin for Urinary tract infection

    Hello, Due to taking Ciprofloxacin and Tavanic, I had extremely severe tendons and joint pain. The joints had cracked and were severely inflamed. I then had magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B complex and vitamin E. The pain got a little better. From a friendly doctor, I had learned that in the articular and tendon pain often a shortage of amino acids could be present. I ordered the Amino Acid complex from Nature Power, and after taking the first tablets, all the pain was gone. That was my experience. I would like to help many people with severe pain. There are certainly also amino acids from other manufacturers. The effect was incredible. Even this joint crash was gone. Maybe this was only the case with me, but I think many sufferers with pain should also test that. Thomas

    13.11.2009 The prescription of this drug is in my eyes assault. I can only advise against taking. I wish I had never taken the remedy! – The day after the first ingestion in September 2008, severe pain with inflammation occurred in the thumb joints. Holding bottles was no longer possible. Playing an instrument was only possible to a limited extent. The complaints continue. As a result, the pain has spread to all joints such as cervical spine, shoulders, knees. In animal experiments, the joints and cartilage of young animals were completely destroyed! Why do you allow such a drug at all ??? My risk of arthrosis is likely to be greatly increased by taking ciprofloxacin. This means enormous pain and possibly necessary surgery of the hip and knees. – Approx. For 2 months, intestinal inflammation with significant pain. The stomach was bloated, no pants fit more. Had to take intestinal bacteria and antimycotics. – Muscle pain and muscle weakness, since then I can hardly do any more sports. Luckily, I had only Achilles tendon pain and no tear, as some patients report the following, very informative link: Please beforehand Read Ciprofloxacin and then decide if you want to take the risk. – Lethargy, severe debilitating fatigue with a great need for sleep that makes the demands of a normal working day seem insurmountable. – severe concentration disorders, depressed for a week in Nov. 08, followed by diffuse fears (for no reason at all). This was very stressful. – a striking susceptibility to infection, busy from Sept. 08 to Feb. 09 almost continuously with viral infections and bronchitis. This fall it continued. When concomitant with low-dose cortisone, concomitant inflammation was rapid, but this may indicate damage to the adrenal cortex that produces the body’s own cortisol. – My general condition has been poor since taking Ciprofloxacin. A thyroid scan for the above symptoms was diagnosed with Hashimoto, an autoimmune thyroid disease. All of the above symptoms are consistent with this condition and I can not shake the suspicion that Hashimoto has just broken out by taking Ciprofloxacin. The immune system is severely damaged and I have the impression that especially the sensitive regulatory cycle of hormone-producing glands has been damaged. I have no understanding that in this health care system for about 20 euros thoughtlessly prescribed a drug that pays the health insurance, which damages my body sustainable and I personally for the restoration of my health privately large sums must spend to reasonably again one To get an idea of what it means to be healthy. I appeal to the physicians’ responsibility and the old-fashioned Hippocratic Oath: I will make medical prescriptions for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment, but I will guard against harming them and misappropriating them.
