I am taking CIPRO for Urethritis. I was reading on the instructions that the drug can cause tendon rupture. Before reading these information, I was going to the gym every morning and lifting weights. On the second or third day of taking this drug, I noticed that my strength had decreased significantly. Fourth day, I feel mild pain on my right elbow. I am now suspecting it could be due to this drug. How can I take care of my body or better yet the musculoskeletal system while I take this drug. What does this drug do to weaken the muscles and tendons?
I have read about so many victims of these drug, and it is pretty scary. I have like 7 more pills left. I wish I could stop this horrible drug. Anyone know regarding the reasons for the side effects on the musculoskeletal system and how to reduce its impact?
