I was given Cipro and Flagel, doc mentioned side effects but I was so sick I didn't pay attention. Turns out one of the side effects of Cipro can be a ruptured achellis tendon, I did not have a rupture but after 10 days of Cipro the very next day my heel started hurting, I would be walking fine and then out of nowhere a pain would shoot up the back of my heel and it became frequent. Very painful! Went to the foot doctor and he confirmed that the Cipro can weaken the tendon and cause small tear and tendonitis, I am now walking in a gel brace for a couple of weeks. Just wanted to alert everyone to make the connection. Now Cipro has been added to the lsit of antibiotics that I cannot take. I was told if I took it again the side effect could be worse each time.
