Cipro (ciprofloxacin): It's a good antibiotic if the bacteria causing the infection is susceptible to it. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) also belongs to a group of antibiotics, the fluoroquinolones, which has been shown to cause tendon ruptures in certain patients.

Strong ?: Antibiotics are neither week or strong.They are either narrow spectrum (only good to kill a few germs) or broad spectrum (kills a lot of types of germs). Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is a intermediate to broad in its spectrum, yet it does not kill all germs that cause infections.

A 39-year-old female asked:

Is there any way to diagnose side effect from Cipro (ciprofloxacin) (antibiotics)?

Doctor: I am not sure there is a specific way to diagnose side effects. The most common are dizziness, GI upset, diarrhea and tendonitis. SE the doctor for advice if symptoms are caused by the drug and if the person taking the drug needs something different. Best wishes
