I will take nothing other than amoxicillian. I had bad reaction to cipro and levaquin. With the levaquin had achy joints and burning body. I still have problems from levaquin. It is in my file at my doctors that I have bad side effects from all quinolones.
it is VERY important that you take prescription antibiotics EXACTLY as indicated by your doctor - if you don't, you run the risk of the bacteria becoming RESISTANT to the antibiotic and you don't want that to happen.
If you are concerned about the effects of the cipro, take it as prescribed (twice daily) for now and talk to your doctor first thing tomorrow.
