Hi welcome to health care magic, I am sorry that you experienced problems related to your medication.
Most medications are associated with a number of potential side effects though most persons normally do not have any problems. Ciprofloxacin
is a member of the fluoroquinolone family of drugs and is associated with potential side effects such as dizziness, headache, drowsiness
, stomach upset
, diarrhoea,heartburn, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite to name only a few.
Approximately 1% of persons who take ciprofloxacin would experience constipation
as a side effect. It is unlikely that the constipation you are experiencing ,if it is as a result of the medication which is now completed, would be permanent.
Constipation can have many causes including but not limited to : inadequate fluid intake, inadequate fibre intake, inadequate mobility, stress, medications, overuse of laxatives, hypothyroidism
, neurologial diseases, eating disorders and depression.
Increasing your fluid intake, fruits , vegetable and other sources of fibre may be helpful.
Most person with constipation do not extensive testing but since it has been going on for 2 weeks you need to consider going to your doctor for a full check out and examination.
