    Bad reaction. After a couple of days taking pills, was rushed to ER. Severe head itching, swollen tongue, trembling and rash around stomach. Stayed at hospital for five hours to received life saving medical health. Since, has developed food allergies. Do not take this medication, it will forever change your immune system. Never had any allergies before this reaction.

    Shortly after taking Cipro I could barely get out of bed. I had tendinitis in almost all of my joints. It was excruciating. It's been 4 1/2 months and my knees and shoulders are still causing me a lot of pain. Cipro is toxic and wish I had known at the time that it was black labeled. BE CAREFUL!!!

    Had 3 UTI's in a row. Took Cipro, Citfen, and Cipro again. Developed acute Achilles tendonitis, burning and swelling in ankles and hands. This drug should be off the market.
