ciprofloxacin for Urinary Tract Infection: Was put on Amoxicillin for my UTI, didn't work, went back to doctors and they prescribed me Cipro. After taking first pill, felt much better. Only side effect seemed to be irritation and itching of vagina.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Prostatitis: I took this medicine for 2 months straight. The condition fluctuated, but for the most part improved. After 2 months I stopped taking it and symptoms returned.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin): After 5 days on Cipro for a urinary tract infection (allergic to sulfa, Keflex, Macrodantin ) I finished the 5 days prescribed then began to feel awful, severe joint pain in wrists, back and neck. I had painful deep breaths and general overall aching. I had some diarrhea and abdominal pain. Bladder infection is better.

ciprofloxacin for Sinusitis: This medication made me nauseous everytime I took it, but I continued to take it . On the 7th day I became very ill. Chills, vomiting, hurting and I stayed in bed for 2 days except for going to the Instant Care. They said I had an allergic reaction. The doctor also gave me a 1-pill medication to prevent an yeast infection.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Prostatitis: I took Cipro for a month and felt improvement, but 10 days after completing my script, the symptoms have returned. I am also on Bactrim and am hopeful to get this resolved.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Urinary Tract Infection: I used Cipro for a urinary tract infection (I do not usually get urinary tract infections). The first night I took it, I felt better by the next morning. It took a few hours before I felt better (where I didn't have to go to the bathroom every 3 minutes), but it let me sleep and by the next day that burning sensation had gone away. The only side effect, was I felt nauseated and sluggish the first day. After that, it was great to get back to normal.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Diverticulitis: Have used once or twice a year for last 10 years and start to have relief within 24 hours with symptoms usually gone by day three. I take two a day after first tinge of pain (you know what I am talking about) and continue for one week minimum or two days more than symptoms persist. Makes me a little fatigued and I start to get diarrhea after about 4 days but it is worth it.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Bladder Infection: I have become very sensitive to ingredients in certain drinks and products. I can no longer take bubble baths or use body washes (anything with scents). I also can't drink any of the energy drinks. From the first time I feel the symptoms (frequency, pain, "full" feeling), it's usually gone straight to my kidneys and I'm urinating with blood in the urine. Over the counter mediines don't work with me. The doctor gives me Cipro and Pyridine (for pain/turns urine orange) and it knocks it out fast and completely. Depending on the dose (I get higher for kidneys than just straight bladder), it can wipe out all bacteria (good/bad) and cause a yeast infection. I've been lucky and only have had one.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Urinary Tract Infection: After one pill I felt depressed and could not sleep that night. I decided to stop taking the medication and will have it replaced with good old Amoxicilin.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Bronchitis: Dangerous drug, associated with many side effects, even after you stop taking it. I took a similar one (a quinolone) and came out in a terrible rash. Had bad taste in mouth, and aches and pains. I also suffered hallucinations. All these reactions have been strongly associated with this group of antibiotics. Best avoided.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Bladder Infection: It works every time, however takes about 3-4 hours to provide relief. The only reason why I don't give it a 10 is because it gives me yeast infections every time.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Urinary Tract Infection: Cipro worked the first time I got a urinary tract infection but has become less effective with each successive one. This time my doctor gave me an injection of Rocephin followed by a 15 day (twice a day) treatment of Doxycycline.

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for Diverticulitis: Nausea after 3rd day. Some disorientation-dizziness on 6th day Nervousness-shakiness after 4 days. DOES KILL the bacteria well, though.
