    A corollary:
    If you really want to get sick, go see a doctor.
    If you really want to die, go to a hospital.

    OMG!!! stumbled on your thread...

    so, my freaking GOOD shoulder has started killin me the last 3-4 days.. banging my head trying to figure WTF i did to it?? exercise wise... NOTHING!!

    But... But... But..... week and half ago i ended up passing a Kidney stone, and wouldnt ya know it, one of the RX they gave me was CIPRO!!

    so i question now.. the shoulder pain, tendon pain.. is it directly related to the CIPRO?? took last pill about 3-days ago... per your link, its exactly some of the side effects that are possible.

    Dam it!!

    Like they say, you have to weight the risks. In other words, what could happen if I don't take the meds vs. how much will the meds hurt me. :confused:

    My Dr prescribed both cipro and flagyl for suspected uncomplicated diverticulitis. Flagyl has its own crazy side effects as well.

    Commonly prescribed anticholinergic drugs linked to dementia risk

    People over age 55 who used strong anticholinergic medication each day for more than three years had a 50 percent increased risk of developing dementia, according to findings published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.

    For the study, the researchers analyzed medical data on nearly 59,000 people with dementia collected between January 2004 and January 2016. Of the records analyzed, the median age of patients was 82, and about 63 percent them were women.

    My ultimate goal - no medications, only natural supplements.

    Hearing the fast-paced disclaimer in every pharmaceutical commercial is simply insane. I continually ask myself why people take some of that crap. You will likely die, but your corpse will have great looking skin!

    Why can't America get on the band wagon and outlaw drug commercials as other countries have?

    Nevermind - I know why. $$$

    Cipro worked for me. Could have lost part of my left foot due to a serious infection and that could have become a bone infection. Nothing new in those articles.
