    While this stuff works to kill the infection, it is hard to keep down. I throw up every few hours on this drug. I feel queasy right now and I took cipro almost 8 hours ago. I bought cipro here http://health-care-24h.com Maybe my review helpes someone too.

    Cipro is not worth the side effects. Please, please do yourself a favor and get educated on this poison of a drug instead of just taking it because your doctor prescribed it. Day 1 and 2 of takingredients Cipro and I felt out of my mind. Could focus, zoned out, hard to concentrate. Day 3 I woke up in the middle of the night with extreme pain in both ankles. Later that day I had difficulty walk ... Show Full Comment
