Dysbiosis: Most likely, the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) killed off most of your normal intestinal bacteria, causing all kinds of problems. Eat yogurt, or a good probiotic from your health food store to recolonize your normal bacteria.

Probably: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) should not cause problems with your MS or blood pressure. Usually you need to take it at least 5 days for bladder infections
