Chris’s Story – Cipro Side-Effects

Christopher Dobbert

I was prescribed Cipro last April by the on-call surgeon before I was discharged from hospital after having emergency surgery. I was taking it for 5 days, when I went to see the surgeon who did the surgery. He was shocked that it was prescribed to me. He made a comment that it was a Nasty Drug….Didn’t think much about it until I started having severe pain all over my body and in 50% increase in the number of Migraine headaches per month. Seen to Neurologist and severe Internal Medicine Specialist and until now I have basically been told that its my imagination. I just recently went to see a Rheumatologist, where I was told I have Fibromyalgia and possibly Sjogrens or Lupus. It was when I mention this to my friend, she told me of her friend that was having severe reaction to Avelox. I look it up and found that its same category as Cipro. Wow, I was shocked!

Could this answer my question as to why I feel like I am 80 years old when I am only 41. Please feel free to contact me with any information you may have or info for my doctors.

Alexa’s Story – Levaquin Side-Effects




Had the displeasure of taking one Levaquin pill a week ago to treat a UTI. I’m twenty years old and was born with various heart diseases (including one involving my heart being stiff) so the effects of the ‘antibiotic’ have been particularly crippling. I’m just glad I’d only taken one pill and hope to recover.
