Cipro side effects?

Posted , 4 users are following.

 I had to take Cipro for 5days because of typhoid infection. I am still having some undesirable effects. Initially i thought the infection is still there until i ran some test which came back negative.

I still have brain fog like my body and mind is not connected. I am barely sleeping. I feel cold while sweating. What can i do to alleviate this feelings. How long can I expect the brain fog to last.

    Hi again Have sent you a PM .

    ​TYPHOID . Very nasty, I had paratyphoid as a teenager but was in an isolation hospital for 8 weeks 3 were spent in a semi comatose state. Strictly barrier nurses by wonderful fever nurses.

    ​I was given chloramphenicol first injections then when conscious orally plus vitamins . 

    ​Magnesium is usually recommended to chelate this poison from hanging around. Mind my asking how you got typhoid and the severity. Have you got to stick to a special diet for the moment?

    When I wrote poison I was referring to the dreadful Cipro plus all the other quinolone 'family', should be banned.

    Hi again. How long ago did you contract the thyphoid

    This is a nasty infection and it takes a little while to get over.

    I think you should get a full check out by your dr and a blood screening including for thyroid issues, for anaemia, low vitamin D and B12 levels. Then based on the results take it from there. It may be due anxiety but physical things need excluding first . I think you just need time to get over this but please discuss this with your dr. Take care.
