Question Asked:

"Good day, Doctor. I am a male in my 30's. Some months back I was diagnosed of a urinary tract infection and CIPROTAB was prescribed to me which I took for 14 days. Before I took the drugs I read about the side effects of the drug which includes weakening of the body joints and muscles. I experienced these side effects while taking the medication though I couldn't stop taking it because I needed to get well. The problem now is that for the past 4 weeks I stop the medication, I still experience weakness of my body joints and muscles especially in the morning. Please is there any medication you can prescribe to me to get my body fitness, joints, muscles and weight back? Please and thanks so much"

    Good morning, is the body and joint weakness getting worse or getting better? does it help with analgesics like paracetamol? ill suggest u see a doctor if yur symptoms are worsening. Also it might not be related to d effects of d medications so its better to get reevaluated by a doctor. all d best
