My Cipro Overdose
by Jaime Romero
About a month ago i went to the doctors office with frequent urination symptoms and was prescribed cipro. The problem is that the doctor wrote down the wrong dosage he wrote 2000 mg per day instead of 1000 mg per.
I took 12 pills out of the 84 that he gave me. I was a healthy strong weight lifter before all this but the damage that this drug has caused is horrible and sad. After I stopped taking it two days later i went to the ER with severe leg pains, diarrhea and twitches and insomnia, I was sent home with vicoden.
I went back to the ER 2 days later and was hospitalized for 5 days. severe tendonitis and diarrhea most of the pain was at night and it was severe. I've been out of the hospital for 20 days and the pains seem to spread. My bowel is not normal and my joints and tendons are in so much pain that it is frustrating.
I am taking natural remedies which help a lot but it is a real painful situation. I'm only 30 years old and I've never had any health problems. I try to stay positive but it is real difficult. I just want to ask you how long on average can you recover from this if you can ever recover..
