Pat (3 years ago):

I am 67 yrs.,was on Cipro for 5days-had a transient cerabral ischemia (they called it a mini stroke or a TIA. Went to ER-was talking "gibberish" and had trouble walking normal.Thank the Good Lord I am ok now but the DR. wants me on Aggrenox. I can't help think that Cipro might have had something to do with this.
