The first time I was on Cipro it felt like some of my finger joints had been hit by a hammer. I didn't connect it for a few weeks until I found the drug fact sheet on my table.
The next time I took Cipro I developed anxiety and panic attacks. I was very restless and could not settle down. It was horrible. I also had anxiety and panic attacks with Biaxin. I will never take these drugs again. I know 3 other people who have had the same side effects. How can that be a rare side effect? Thankfully the mental side effects cleared up quickly.
