Rated Fiprox (Cipro) for Bacterial Infection Report
So horrible!! Immediately would feel dizzy, lightheaded, nauseous, no appetite, back aches, fever of 103.1, chills. I can’t believe I didn’t research taking this drug. I stopped taking it today and went to see a new doctor and he was appalled that another doctor would even prescribe this awful drug. It’s poison! Don’t take it!
