Had bronchi for som time now reading the forum mine is minimal. No appointment for clinic to see specialist until Jan 2017 last one was Jan 2016. Have rescue pack in place in case .Ciprofloxacin. One twice a day.
I take Az three times a week. Started a course of Cipro in September and after a week felt really rotten. Having panic attacks and palpitations. Never been that way before so looked at side effects of which there are many and sure enough they were there so stopped the medication. Went to doctor who said it "wouldn't be the Cipro" gave me breathing excercises. Strted them again and the same thing has happened. Every now and then for no reason whatsoever. I have had osteoarthritis for many years slowly getting worse but since starting the antibiotics it has been ridiculous so went to doctors and explained. She has given me Amytripiline which she said was for "nerve" pain and told me only to take at night and it would probably make me sleepy. I told her i have no problem sleeping only staying awake!!!! Going for blood tests next friday 21st to see if it could be Fibromyalga. On checking as you do on the internet the Cipro is not good to take with lots of other meds. So haven't started to try these as yet but as I don't suffer nerve pain not sure it is the way to go. Last night I started to get a burning sensation on the skin on my arms and by the time I went to bed it had generated to my legs. Googled Cipro and was amazed at how many people are suffering different things because of it. Rang my specialist nurse at the hospital for advice this morning and he has told me to stop the antibiotics (he doesn't think my sypmtoms have anything to do with them) and to see how I go and take a sputum sample in to him on Wednesday. Google says doctors are loathe to believe anything about Ciprofloxacin and I wondered if anyone on her has any comments to throw in.
