Hi jameskeiger - welcome to DC and I hope you find what you are looking for in the way of supportive answers and a friendly environment in which to seek help. I wanted to add also for the future when posting questions it helps to post as "conversational" so that we can interact more with you. Posting "direct" means we can only reply once. Now about that CIPRO... as kaismama has pointed out... the side effects of this particular antibiotic are very severe. Also, because it is one of the strongest antibiotics out there (same one used to treat anthrax) to treat bacterial infections... drinking alcohol, too, can lead to having other health issues like thrush and yeast infections. It literally kills ALL of the bacteria... the good ones we are supposed to have along with the bad ones you are being treated for. Drinking during the course of this treatment just is beyond unwise.
The side effects still exist for months following this course of treatment. That is particularly so with tendonitis which is a quite common side effect and even ruptured tendons. If you are a runner or a jogger or do any weight lifting... you run a higher risk of developing tendonitis or worse.
