Took cipro for 7 days and it kind of helped but now it's hurting again
Maggie on Apr, 17, 2015:
Cipro is the last drug I would take. In fact, I would never take it. You may want to look up ciproispoison.com Cipro should be taken off the market. Cipro has ruined my life and cause me to become disabled. Sorry for all those with issues and hope that you get well.
From this study (2 months ago):
I had all of these symptoms before I was put on these medications. I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy with Cataplexy January 2015. I was pregnant from 09/14-04/15 and had the worst symptoms of the numbness of arms and hands, almost every single night. It was excruciating and could only be calmed by massage to my arms and shoulders.
