Doc prescribed Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride for an infection, reading possible side effects.
How is this helping me, seems it could cause more issues?

Ask for alternative: Few doctors understand how commonly Cipro (ciprofloxacin) & related drugs cause serious side effects. While most folks do OK with them, a surprisingly high percentage experience debilitating long term toxicity. Thus, I only prescribe them for serious infections when there are no other antibioitcs that would help. Almost always there are safer choices.Ask your doc for a diff. med.
