Hi all... Last Tuesday (5 days ago) I was put on the Cipro/Flagyl cocktail. Cipro 500mg 2/day & Flagyl 250mg 3/day. Starting yesterday I have had the worst headache I can remember in years. I took 1000mg tylenol and it did nothing. I confess to popping Advil. (Now I feel like a junkie! j/k! ;-) )
Anyway, it seems like every drug you read the side effects for lists headaches. What I'm wondering is if anyone on here directly relates headaches to either Cipro or Flagyl. I don't remember this from previous experiences.
I can't be dehydrated unless something else is seriously wrong. I've had about 36 oz water between 8am and 3pm. I just don't get it. It's so bad that I am having trouble typing and that is *not* normal for me! I just want to curl up.
