Oral Cipro dangerous: Cipro and related fluoroquinilones have now been condemned by the FDA for use in simple infections such as otitis media, because of the significant risk of horrendous side effects, ranging from sudden death from a single dose (it may cause torsade de points), or months of agonizing pain associated with rupture of multiple tendons. It was developed by the Army as a treatment for germ warfare.
