Cipro and Prednisone's Negative Impact on Tendons

Hi Rich,

A friend said I should tell you I'm finishing cipro (for stomach bug) and was on prednisone recently (related to shingles) in case that makes me more prone to a tear or injury. I guess that happens with some corticosteroids and antibiotics.

I'm taking it easy. Let me know if this changes anything.

Thanks very much.   Dr Blake's comment:   Hey Nakima (name changed), You are suspectible for 2 weeks after stopping Cipro to injury tendons. Please finish the medications, wait 2 weeks, and then increase activity and exercises. You have a double whamy with both those meds. Lucky you. rich
