    I am no stranger to UTI's. As you can see from the rest of these ratings, Cipro is very hit and miss for some people. I've only ever used Cipro to treat my kidney/urinary tract infections, and I've found that the benefits outweigh the risks. I am an 18 year old female, about 100 lbs. I find that the more I use cipro, the more side effects I experience. But I must say, it does the trick ... Show Full Comment

    I was perscribed Cipro for a typical UTI (I have a short urethra so they are common for me). I had never taken it before. After my first dose I had extremely bad diarrhea, stomach cramping, burning skin, and began going into anaphalactic shock. I wouldn't take this drug again. I did notice my symptoms of the UTI clearing up after the dose, but the benefits DID NOT outway the reactions for me.

    Cipro knocked down the infection all right, but after 6 doses I started having joint pain. 3rd day after stopping and I walk around like an old man and I am terrified of long-term disability due to this drug. Tendon requiring surgical repair is a side effect, as it turns out, and could happen months or years later.

    Was nervous about taking this med because of all the side effects. Day 2 i had the worst migraine of my life! and I get frequent migranes. It's now day 4 and my legs have cramped up so bad it feels like they are locked. My kidney infection pain is gone but I rather have my back hurt then this leg and head pain.

    I eat a lot of dairy products – yogurt, cheese, soy milk fortified with calcium. The process of taking the RX 2 hours before eating dairy products or taking vitamins was very difficult for me. And worst was timing 6 hours after eating the dairy products or taking vitamins. I also found this RX to be difficult on my stomach. I would appreciate something different if I haveneed of an timing 6 ho ... Show Full Comment
