I went to North Kohala Hospital on December 2, 2009 with severe abdominal pain. I was diagnosed with an UTI (urinary tract infection) and was treated for such. I was given Cipro and Levaquin to treat said UTI. Dr. Goldberg treated me and released me from the Hospital December 2, 2009 at 6:31 PM. I WAS GIVEN CIPRO AS AN HOME/NIGHT PACK WITH NO INSTRUCTIONS (INFORMATION SHEET) THE Cipro should not be used for the first line of treatment for a UTI if that is what I had (PDR citation)?
I was prescribed Cipro 500mg for 7 days in August 2011. I ended up only taking 5 pills before this nightmare started, in which I immediately quit taking the pills. Neither the doctors, or the pharmacists warned us of the potential dangers of these drugs, or that it was such a STRONG antibiotic and that it even has a black box warning on it, and after reading online, I had one of the pre-existing conditions it said NOT To prescribe these drugs for…and still, nobody warned us. We thought it was just another simple antibiotic that I’ve always taken. I was only 22 years old, and prior to cipro I was in relatively decent health. No medical problems, no physical issues….After taking just 5 pills…my life as I knew it had been taken away from me. Instead of going out with my friends, or working to save up money to go off to college, I was stuck at home in bed/on the couch, going to stores in wheelchairs, and watching all my friends and family go about living their normal lives while I was stuck on the sidelines. This is my story, and I hope it will not happen to anyone else.
