User Comments about Ciprofloxacin hydrochloride
02 Jan 2012 Works great for a lot of infections, especially strep throat. Works quite quickly. Makes your urine smell.

14 Jul 2011 I take this medicine simultaneously with Omeprazole Dr and they both give me strong side effects. I was diagnosed with H. Pylori a few months back and it turns out after an endoscopy and biopsy, that it still exists. I asked my doctor to prescribe something else but they informed me that any medicine dealing with H. Pylori is going to have strong side effects.

29 Sep 2010 I have a severe strep infection in my ear and have had many courses of antibiotics before this all have proved ineffective. This drug is working and there has been a rapid improvement in my condition. BUT i feel terrible, i am tired and dizzy and im frequently sick. I have a headache and stomach ache i feel like im spaced out all the time and i am not fit to drive. The side effects of this drug are awful and i would not take it again unless i really had too. on the other hand it has been very effective and has succeded where many other treatments have failed!
