In brief: Yes

Though these are quite uncommon and this drug is usually tolerated well, dangerous side effects include tendonitis, heart rhythm problems, interactions with other medicines, and anaphylaxis.

In brief: Achilles pain

Allergic reactions to antibiotics are the most concerning.
Cipro (ciprofloxacin) can be associated with lower blood sugars but one interesting side effect can be Achilles pain. Taking Cipro (ciprofloxacin) frequently does result in bacterial resistance.
