Scared to work out again after 10 days of Cipro

by WannaRun

I had a bad recurring sinus infection. My doctor put me on 500mg of cipro, twice a day, for 10 days, so that is 1000 mg of cipro a day for 10 days.

I finished the antibiotics 7 days ago. I did not learn about the seriousness of the tendon issues until my last day. My doctor assured me that I can go back to my normal routine immediately.

I love lifting heavy weights, running, and playing tennis. ever since I learned of the possible side effects, I feel a very slight soreness (weak feeling) in my tendons, especially the achilles. I notice only sometimes when walking or walking up stairs. Now that my sinus infection is gone, I want to work out so badly, but I am scared to work out now.

The Cipro symptoms I have had so far are very very minor. I really do not want to rupture a tendon though.

What do you think?

Hi WannaRun.

I hope you find this response, as you didn't leave your email address or click the notification box.

The GOOD news is that you have minor symptoms of Cipro Cytotoxicity.

That's great news.

It's likely you'll heal out of that, and unlikely that you'll experience a rupture.

Having said that, I'd be worried too., while less prevalent than Levaquin Tendonitis (it's the same thing, really) is BAD NEWS.

Personally, I'd be flooding my body with as many good things as possible to A. Counteract the downsides of Cipro and B. Help my body heal as much and as fast as possible.

As always I suggest the The Levaquin Tendonitis Solution ebook. Do you need it? Maybe. Would you feel stupid if your symptoms got worse 1-6 months from now and you hadn't don't the right things to stop that from happening and help your body heal? Probably.

Regardless, you'll want to know this info:
