I’m not sure which forum is most appropriate for this kind of question but here goes:
I’m currently taking a 10day dose of Ciprofloxacin, a quinolone. One of the more notorious side effects of this antibiotic is it’s tendency to cause tendon ruptures and tendonitis, and I am trying to figure out whether it is a serious risk or not. Naturally, my doctor told me to lay off, and I didn’t have many options in terms of antibiotics, since Cipro is one of the better medications for the condition.
I don’t want to give up 10 days of training, but at the same time I don’t want to risk rupturing a tendon. I’m specifically worried about my left knee. I suffered a minor injury last fall, went to a doctor, did some therapy, but I still experience some pain and impingement after I squat. Anyone have any experience with lifting on this medicine?
