Trust me, if you read all of the side effects it will scare you to death. I am taking it right now and you can still get this long list of side effects for several months after you are done taking the drug. Boy! That's a new one on me!

A doctor prescribed Cipro for a UTI. It turned out that I never had a UTI at all. But I have been suffering from side effects from this dangerous drug ever since. Beware of the first signs of an allergic reaction. It has been two years since I first took Cipro and everyday I live with the side effects. Not sure if they will ever go away. This drug should only be used as last resort.
