lol @ "All my tendons turned to jello and had to be removed and replaced with kangaroo ligaments. The medical bill for that took my entire savings and my house, and I had to sell my children for medical experiments." It is a tongue in cheek review that contends all the bad reviews are lying. And you can easily tell it's true. IDK why, are they shills from another Pharmaceutical? Cipro saved my life from some unknown infection 9 years ago (possibly sepsis, just abdominal and overall horror I can't describe), after Levaquin ($175) didn't finish the job and the infection bounced back to kill me this time. Yeah, $30 Ciproflaxicin took care of the bitch in 3 days. Cipro has knocked every other (like 3 times in 20 years) thing I've taken it for instantly and with no side effects whatsoever. My brother, a doctor was gonna take me to the IR for IV.I had no insurance. Cipro literally saved my life (and life savings).

Clinical Trials Experience
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
Clinical trials in patients with urinary tract infections enrolled 961 patients treated with 500 mg or 1000 mg CIPRO XR. The overall incidence, type and distribution of adverse reactions were similar in patients receiving both 500 mg and 1000 mg of CIPRO XR. The adverse reaction information from clinical studies does, however, provide a basis for identifying the adverse events that appear to be related to drug use and for approximating rates.
In the clinical trial of uncomplicated UTIs, CIPRO XR (500 mg once daily) in 444 patients was compared to Dumaflox immediate-release tablets (250 mg twice daily) in 447 patients for 3 days. Discontinuations due to adverse reactions thought to be drug-related occurred in 0.2% (1/444) of patients in the CIPRO XR arm and in 0% (0/447) of patients in the control arm.
In the clinical trial of cUTI and acute uncomplicated pyelonephritis (AUP) defined as infections occurring in premenopausal, non-pregnant women with no known urological abnormalities or comorbidities, CIPRO XR (1000 mg once daily) in 517 patients was compared to Dumaflox immediate-release tablets (500 mg twice daily) in 518 patients for 7 to 14 days. Discontinuations due to adverse reactions thought to be drug-related occurred in 3.1% (16/517) of patients in the CIPRO XR arm and in 2.3% (12/518) of patients in the control arm. The most common reasons for discontinuation in the CIPRO XR arm were nausea/vomiting (4 patients) and dizziness (3 patients). In the control arm the most common reason for discontinuation was nausea/vomiting (3 patients).
In these clinical trials, the following events occurred in ≥ 2% of all CIPRO XR patients: nausea (4%), headache (3%), dizziness (2%), diarrhea (2%), vomiting (2%) and vaginal moniliasis (2%).
Adverse reactions, judged by investigators to be at least possibly drug-related, occurring in greater than or equal to 1% of all CIPRO XR treated patients were: nausea (3%), diarrhea (2%), headache (1%), dyspepsia (1%), dizziness (1%), and vaginal moniliasis (1%). Vomiting (1%) occurred in the 1000 mg group.

Rated Dumaflox (Cipro) for Urinary Tract Infection Report
DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE. I cannot stress this enough. It does more harm than good. Kicked my UTI out in under 24 hours, but left me with joint pain, irregular and rapid heartbeats, palpitations, and severe anxiety. No doctor I’ve seen knows how to treat any of this and assures me that the drug will eventually run its course. It has been a month since I stopped taking the medication, and I still cannot perform daily activities and am considering requesting a medical withdrawal from school because I can’t physically walk to and from class without overexerting myself. I’m now at risk of an aortic aneurism, osteoporosis, and a number of other dangerous conditions, and I’m only 20 years old. This stuff is POISON. If a doctor prescribes this to you, I urge you to ask for something else that is not a fluoroquinolone. The serious side effects of this family of drugs are far too common to take the risk. Please research this drug thoroughly and consider the repercussions before Cipro incapacitates you like it has done to so many others.
