    Question side effects for Cipro??

    I was prescribed by a doctor a medicine called Cipro, I was in excruciating pain in my stomach and was not able to go to the bathroom, I was having blood in my stool and producing nothing but mucous for a week, after I started the meds I felt better a day later, I went to the bathroom the night it was perscribed it was constipation but also bacterial infection in my stomach as well, since I have taken the pills I have felt better stomach wise.

    occasionally since taking the medicine I get random spells of Nausea, not sure if that's normal

    I went to the bathroom a week ago, I haven't gone since, not painful just haven't had the urge to go, is that something to worry about?

    also I wanted to know will this decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills?

    I know this next symptom is causing me pain though and this is the one I am worried about, I'm getting cramps around the area where you'd get cramps on a menstrual cycle, but I'm no where near my cycle, and it burns terribly when I urinate, should I call my doctor and ask about Cipro, because this painful urination is quite a nuisance.

    Thanks

    Hi, call a pharmacist. They know best about side effects. I have taken Cipro and if I recall I read it can cause tendon damage though very rare. I don't remember if you should take food with it to cut down stomach pains. The pharmacist will be able to answer the questions

    Re: side effects for Cipro??

    symptoms now include pains through my stomach that feel like muscles aching, could it b due to the terrible constipation I had a week ago and how much I had to strain and pulled muscles in my stomach, or is this anoter possible side effect Cipro?

    it hurts when I attempt to pass gas or try to have a bowel movement, I have had no bowel movements since I made a large bowel movement and pased the constipation issue, I'm just very scared It'll happen again, I've been taking a stool softner not an oral supository (phillips tablet) should I take phillips, continue the stool softner, get an enema or what? when I was admitted to the hospital I had an xray done nothing was found, they asked for a urine sample it was dark yellow like apple juice, nothing was found, asked for a stool sample, didn't happen, had one in the wee hours of the morning (3:00am) following the hospital visit.

    haven't had one since, and they want a sample, I don't know what to do, I don't want another episode like that it was so painful, the doctor perscribed me the cipro I felt better, he said I woul have it just incase ther was anything in need of killing in te stomach, but then a week later this the symptoms of whatever it is, made me have charlie-horses at night, pains in my stomach that felt like I pulled muscles and such, and haven't had a bowel movement like I mentioned before, shoud I be worried, should I call my doctor, I'm kind of concerned.

    (P.S. the Comp I am using have Keys that stick so you may see errors in my question sorry bout' that)

    thanks for your help

    Sarah

    Re: side effects for Cipro??

    I take it with food and lots of water, staying away from sodas and milk I also Have IBS I'll call my doctor, but my doctor sometimes dosen't listen to her patients and end up making a problem worse, sorry if I'm talking too much or being a nucicance It's just never happened to me before, due to the nature of the doctor who do you suggest I call?

    thanks so much I truly appreciate it

    Question Re: side effects for Cipro??

    ok now I'm scared because of another forum, saying you could have long lasting negative effects from meds like cipro and cipro it's self


    I was nervous already seeing this did not help

    My MIL actually had her knee tendon tear from Cipro. She was just walking into a store and then BLAM, her knee went. It was wild.
