In brief: Ciprofloxacin

Fluoroquinolones (Cipro/Levaquin) do have side affects.
The most common concern we have with patients on these medications, howevrer, is not joint pain, but spontaneous tendon ruptures, particularly of the Achilles Tendon. If your joint pain continues, see the physician who prescribed you the medication, or see an orthopedic surgeon for further evaluation.
