Before and during the treatment
Cipro is a serious antibiotic and it may be responsible for various side effects in patients, therefore before you start talking it you need to be sure it is safe for you. For instance, check if you are allergic to the drug or similar antibiotics.
If you are not sure you need to contact your doctor and also let him or her know if you are currently suffering from a liver or a kidney disease, joint problems, myasthenia gravis, diabetes, hypokalemia or if you have a history of seizures or Long QT syndrome.
Once you have already started the treatment avoid taking such dairy products as yogurt, milk or calcium-fortified juice together with Cipro as these products may decrease the effectiveness of the drug.
However these products are not the only substances that can interfere with Cipro’s performance. Vitamins, antacids and mineral supplements should not be taken 2 hours after or 6 hours before Cipro.
Some people, especially if they are over 60 years old, take steroid medication or had a heart, lung, or kidney transplant may be a target for swelling and tearing of the fiber connecting muscles to bones in the body, which is called tendon, due to treatment with Cipro.
That is why if you start experiencing sudden swelling, pain, or any problems with your joint you need to notify your doctor immediately.
Confusion in elderly
Cipro is not only responsible for tendon problems in elderly people but for some other serious conditions as well. For example, it is interesting that such antibiotics as Cipro and other similar ones have been noticed to cause severe cases of confusion among the people over 60.
To support this statement there have been numerous accounts of elderly patients wandering around in complete confusing after taking the medication.
Even though the percentage of this side effect is very low because it only affects one age group, but it is as the same time fairly common in people of a certain age and therefore is a reason for concern for those treating elderly patients.
