Sounds like he warned you of potential side effects though so I guess you can't totally fault him.

Hope that clears up for you.

He mentioned the tendon issue but in a very passive way, like I had nothing to worry about. He failed to inform me of potential nerve damage or paralysis. !!!

Basically this stuff dissolves your tendons and weakens connective tissue, including eyes and heart.

Lessons learned: always get a second opinion, go to a specialist not a general practitioner, and read all the warnings before starting anything. Trust no one.

It's good to do your due diligence like you mention above, but TBH any antibiotic that you take is going to have a laundry list of potential reactions. And there's no knowing how you will react until you try it. If one person experiences any reaction to a drug in a trial, then it goes on the warning label.

Cipro obviously doesn't agree with you. But taking antibiotics for prostatitis is a necessity and there are no risk free drugs out there.

Prostatitis is a bitch. It took a long time for me to finally be diagnosed, treated, and it took a few rounds of antibiotics to finally clear it up. Hang in there. You'll feel much better once you get it taken care of. cheers

I posted here before about my experience with Cipro after being prescribed it for a case of diverticulitis. I only took 3 pills and my Achilles in both legs felt like they were going to explode for the next 6-months. Bad bad shit. I've been nothing but injuries since. Just starting to feel like I am past it 3 years later.

When taking any antibiotic, a good probiotic us a must.

Yup. I made smoothies with kefir and RAW-brand probiotic capsules every day. And took magnesium supplements. Definitely helped.

So a month later, here is an update. The doctor wanted to put me on more antibiotics (of course). I declined. I found a book titled "A Headache in the Pelvis" written by two Stanford doctors about pelvic dysfunction and referred pain. It ticked all the boxes. I have super tight hips, psoas, etc. My pain started right after skiing at Whistler for a week. I started stretching regularly, saw a homeopath for some helpful supplements, and have been back to normal for two weeks. No more antibiotics needed. Turns out they were never needed. I'm going to continue a core strengthening program indefinitely.

When I told the western medicine doctor about the book and alternative treatments, he belittled me. Screw him.

Cipro is a great antibiotic and it's been around for years. Generally younger patients were highly discouraged from using it to avoid cartilage effects. Hard to ascribe the immediate effects some noted here directly to Cipro but it's possible. As with any antibiotic only take it if absolutely necessary and there isn't a decent alternative.
