Cipro and Levaquin and Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Oh My!
My husband was on a 30-day 500mg 2x a day Cipro treatment for what was thought to be a prostate infection. Side effects began about 2wks in are electric zapping radiating through limbs, numbness on toes, blurred vision, awful migraines (which he took Advil almost on a daily basis for) and tendonitis in shoulder to name a few.
He mentioned these to the doctor who said these were NOT a result of Cipro and to continue course of treatment. Going against his better judgement, he finished. 2wks later, he is dealing with panic attacks/anxiety, muscles spasms in limbs, tremors and fluctuation of body temp (hot/cold). With all the reading I've done and FB group I've joined, I immediately started him on Natural Calm magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, B-complex and began juicing tons of leafy greens to get antioxidants in him. With the help of homeopathic Ignatia Amara and Cina it helps calm the nervousness.
Some days are better but nights are worse. First night we called 911 not knowing where all this was stemming from. I just need to know others have recovered from this. There does not seem to be many posts of full recoveries made.
Is there something else we should be doing?
Any help, guidance, light at the end of the tunnel would be so greatly appreciated.
