last year I had to take Cipro for about 14 days in two occasions, a month later I pulled my Achilles tendon in the dojo after warm up while walking. I just wanted to give everybody a heads up to be careful about Cipro. for Example if you get intestinal infection, most likely they treat it with Cipro but it can be replaced with other antibiotics as well.

Having not heard of Cipro before, I had to google it to find out about it.

The site I was on gives you info on the medication. I saw that they put what happened to your achilles as a major side effect (not just achilles, but tendons in general).

So are you able (if you want) elaborate why you are giving the heads up?
