First episode, I'm a young and healthy 63, I've had night sweats since taking this drug and they also gave me Flagyl at some outrageous huge dose which I stopped altogether because it was killing me: bp was 100/60 at 11AM, stomach felt like something died in there. Is Cipro actually safe?? I've read an awful lot of bad things about it but here I see one person has used it successfully to stop the onset of diverticulitis successfully. Are night sweats part of this drug's side effects or the result of the diarrhea it is apparently causing? My Dr. happens to have diverticulitis also right now and he thinks these drugs are wonderful, I think they're fairly scary.
