A little over a year and a half ago I was given Cipro for a mild bladder infection. A month later i began to have symptoms of prolapse and a small tendon in my lower back tore with a tremendous snap. Although I knew that the drug could cause peripheral nerve damage I took it anyway without researching it . When I had no peripheral nerve damage i thought I was home free. Over the last winter the prolapse worsened and I had trouble with infection. Asking for a tetracycline i was given Cipro. Very close to the time I took that dose but i don't know exactly when the condition worsened dramatically. I began to read about Cipro and was horrified to see the new black box warning indicating that I should never have taken this drug and also Dr. Mercola's articles about tendon damage and damage to Collagen metabolism. I realized that the uterus has a huge collagen rich ligament suspending it and i began to see a terrifying pattern. Also my arthritis is now somewhat worse and my energy level lower. While i cannot prove anything I am afraid that i have drunk the Kool-Aid. I am almost 80 and take steroids so am definitely in a category that should not take Cipro. I am curious to find if other people have had such an experience.

Hello, I was diagnosed with hyperkalemia, and have started a round of antibiotics to treat an abscess tooth. In the past i have taken a probiotic with my antibiotic but am hesitant in doing so as I am not sure if it would spike my hyperkalemia.
I have been taking melatonin for a while and the potassium in my blood is too high. Does someone know if I can reverse this problem? If so, do I have to stop the melatonin completely and how long would it take to lower the potassium in my blood? Thank you!
