For Urinary Tract Infection "This medicine gave me terrible anxiety, could not sleep, very high pulse and blood pressure and migraines. The doctor had me quit taking it immediately. I suggest seeing if there are other options before taking Ofloxacin. It can cause permanent damage altering your health for life."

For Urinary Tract Infection "The doctor told me it would help within 48 hours and it did. Thank God for cranberry juice which helped me pass the kidney stone that probably led to the urinary tract infection in the first place. I drank the juice and 5 minutes later out came the stone, without any discomfort! Saved me 48 hours of anguish!"

For Pelvic Inflammatory Disease "I was given this drug plus metronidazole for a suspected pelvic inflammation. Woke up in the morning with sweats, severe panic attack, severe confusion and very dry mouth. I was paranoid and scared to go back to sleep. Called the GP in the morning and they told me to change antibiotics however I refused and now I am waiting for an examination of the pelvis .The only symptom I had was abnormal discharge. Can’t trust these doctors"

For Urinary Tract Infection "This medication made me extremely ill. I had such severe anxiety out of nowhere I had to contact an emergency doctor. This side effect only got worse as I continued taking it, peaking on the 4th day when it was discontinued. All I can describe it as is being constantly on the verge of a panic attack, and sometimes succumbing to it. It took almost 3 days for me to go back to normal after my last dose."
