The day before my vacation began I went to my doctor with a urinary tract infection and he prescribed cipro pills. I began my medical treatment for urinary tract infection by taking my first cirpo pill as my plane landed in Rome, Italy the next morning. Less than one hour later, the abulance took me via stretcher from my hotel to the hospital. The hotel doctor on call administered hydrocortisone ... Show Full Comment

It took my uti away but left me with a terrible headache, sore throat, dizziness, and sluggish feeling. I stopped taking it after the 3rd day and couldn't finish the 7 day perscription because of the side effects. It's been a week and they still haven't went away. I hope they aren't long term. I will never take this med again.

I went to Urgent Care for a UTI after having ignored it for two weeks (I know-bad call). By the time I got there, I was having flank pain that I'm assuming was kidney-related. Was prescribed 500 mg 2x/day for five days. I'm currently on day 4, and I'm definitely not finishing out day 5. Nausea, vomiting, dizziness, feeling faint, fatigue. Just generally unpleasant. My symptoms pe ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Have been taking for 5 days. From the beginning, extreme nausea, upset stomach and reflux. Today, my final day taking the drug I awoke with a terrible headache and jaw and neck pain. So glad to have just taken my last pill. Hope I never have to take this medication again. Several years ago I went through chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer and this drug made me feel almost as bad as the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took this medication for a urinary tract infection. I took 2 per day for 7 days. The first few days, after taking my pill (500 mg)I would feel slightly nauseous, drowsy and lightheaded for about 45 minutes or so. After that, the side effects went away. About 3 weeks later I started breaking out with hives. What happens is an area (like my arm, back)will start itching. Even though I would s ... Show Full Comment
