I am on my fourth day of taking Cipro. My doctor prescribed it for a UTI. The first two days were okay, but starting on the third day, the side effects became worse. I was somewhat weak the first couple of days, but after that I have lived in a "Fog"!! I feel very lightheaded, and have minor, but irritating headaches.

I am very dissatisfied with this drug. It has caused dizziness, irritability ,shoulder pain,headaches and elevated blood pressure. I took this drug years ago and broke out in hives. Our bodies change so I reasoned that maybe I would get better results. No hives this time but all this other stuff, never again!

Have never before experienced such a fast reaction. Took Benadryl to ease allergic symptoms and got RX for a different medication. ... Show Full Comment
