Terry L’s Story

Female 1I had a suspected UTI and was given a prescription for CIPRO (was not tested for UTI). After taking seven days of CIPRO, I still had symptoms of UTI and was given a prescription for LEVAQUIN. I had taken the first pill, no problems. I took the second pill and went to bed. I was up and out of bed within five minutes with extreme pain in my wrists. The tendons were pulling so hard I thought they were going… See full story

Jean K’s Story

Female 2Since the 90s when I had a hysterectomy and various uti infections I had increasing auto-immune problems. This was when I was first given cipro. I was living in California and was able to calm my body by adopting a diet that excluded wheat, dairy and sugar. Fast forward to the 2000s when I moved to Florida and for various reasons I had cipro perhaps 5 times. My immune issues became increasingly worse to the point that in 2014 I… See full story

Erica G’s Story

Female 4I was put on Cipro about 16 years ago when I had my sixth UTI in a year and my ob/gyn sent me to a urologist. I had an upper and lower GI done and ultrasound and MRI in 1/2010 and if my memory serves me I was dealing with the problem for a while. I thought it was a food intolerance and it would kinda come and go. My symptoms were pain very low just above pubic bone area… See full story

Female 1My name is Lynn F. I am 58 years old. I live in White River Junction, Vermont. My doctor prescribed Cipro to me in June, 2014, when I was diagnosed with diverticulitis.

My doctor has dismissed my… See full story

Judith T’s Story

Female 2Little did I know in 2004 when I was prescribed a round of Cipro for a UTI that this drug would rear its ugly head again when I was prescribed another round of it in 2011. I was 58 years old in 2004, enjoying a vacation trip in Upper Michigan, when I developed a urinary tract infection. I was lucky, or unlucky, to find a physician to treat me and was prescribed a round of Cipro. After returning home, about… See full story

Laura L’s Story

Female 8My story begins at the age of 40 and a trip to an after hours health clinic. I had a urinary tract infection and was prescribed Cipro. Seven days into the ten day script, I felt a funny tingling sensation in my right leg. That progressed to both legs and both arms and went from tingling to a very painful cold, burning. I am now 49 years old and the cold burning is STILL there. In addition, I’ve got severe… See full story

Darlene D’s Story

Female 1I have went online and made my complaint. I won’t go into all the details of what my mind and body is doing, just know that all the symptoms of this FQ I have. I am in a nightmare I cannot escape from, no matter how hard I try. I was a Master Cosmetologist, well still am; just not active. To many people’s surprise you have to have a good working knowledge of the human body to carry a license… See full story

Elizabeth A’s Story

Female 4In the spring of 2015, I had yet another UTI. I went to a urologist who wanted to give me Cipro. I asked if there was another option and he said NO. I now realize that wasn’t true at all. Urologists love to give Cipro out for UTI’s. Since I believed him that there were no other options, I proceeded to take the medication. I had been having chronic UTI’s for nearly a decade and I had noticed that when… See full story

Chana E’s Story

Female 1I am a 46 year old woman. For the past year I have struggled with the damage done to me by a ten day course of Ciprofloxacin 500mg BID, taken from October 1-10, 2014. It was prescribed for an uncomplicated bout of seasonal bronchitis. There was no indication whether the bronchitis was viral or bacterial in nature. The decision to prescribe a fluoroquinolone antibiotic was made by my physician without any suggestion that perhaps it was unwarranted; no thought was… See full story
