Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
I have trouble walking (pain) since I started taking Cipro, and after being off the drug, have now fingernail abnormalities in at least 3 fingernails. Am wondering if all this was caused by Cipro. I was walking fine before starting on the drug. It feels like my tendons and joints are affected.
From this study (1 week ago):
This was the first pill I took. Caused sudden fatigue and weakness (used cane). Slept it off. Only thing I can figure is I had taken 25 mg of Tramadol and 4 mg Tizanidine about 2 hours prior. Now afraid what next pill will do in AM.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Fever and redness on that side of face with streaks worsened swelling while on antibiotics. Body temperature below normal
