Should I take ciprofloxacin?

I was prescribed ciprofloxacin for a bladder infection.  I have read a ton online about horrible side effects.  I figure most people would post these types of stories rather than success stories.  What is the truth?  How safe should I feel taking this drug?  I voiced my concern to my family doctor and he seems to back the drug.  I took one pill and feel some slight side effects so far, but nothing extremely serious.

doesn't happen to everyone.  There are neurological effects.  If you walk alot, you will definately feel it cause it will make your tendons sore if you take it for a long time.

I didn't have those side effect with cipro, but I did with levaquin it in the same class but much more powerfull.  The first night I took it, my joints ached.  Then I started getting chills.  After a week or so taking it, the symptoms subsided.  If you walk a lot at work, your feet will hurt more so than before.

cipro did make me have an upset stomach if I didn't eat before hand.  Just remember to not consume anything with lots of calcium 2 hours before or after.
