You know Cipro is tried and true in the medical field. Its trusted by many but why that one Nurse said its a NO GO for MS is not clear to me.
Cipro raises gamma interferon levels, which can cause relapses in MS patients. Also, the FDA finally released a Black Box warning about Cipro recently because it has been shown to cause tendons to snap in people.
Your pharmacist is much more knowledgeable about medicines than most physicians, so if in doubt, contact your neighborhood pharmacist.
Unfortunately, Cipro is the drug of choice for busy, harried physicians to write a prescription when dealing with infections in patients. It is like all of the other antibiotics suddenly left the planet.
