I was hospitalized for 2 days for pneumonia. After I was discharged I was given Cipro 500mg 2 x a day for 2 weeks. I have completed a week at this dosage, however have been having severe pounding headaches & severe tremors. I have COPD so I get lung infections quite frequently. But, I am pretty much over the Pneumonia. But I cannot tolerate the tremors. I want to reduce the dosage as I am having such a bad reaction to the Cipro. I am told that this is the only antibiotic that will control the Bacterial Pneumonia. I also carry Psuedomonas Aeruignosa bacteria in my lungs. I want to reduce the dosage to just 500mg instead of it being twice a day. I obviously cannot tolerate this dosage it was 1, 500. I really do not want to continue with this medication at all. What do you suggest. I will be reporting these side affects to the doctor on Monday . I have taken this Antibiotic before and had to stop due to the side affects they are always the same. Thanks
