I'd never heard of the caffiene but I have heard that it's not good to take Cipro alone with calcium- milk, yogurt or calcium fortified juices. It's ok if they are a part of a meal, but not Cipro with a glass of milk. I think it diminishes the efficacy.
I'm back on it now too. Definitely watching my probiotics this time around!
Oh, once I had an ankle issue while on Cipro and methylpred. It healed and I haven't had that experience again, thankfully.
