Letters to the Editor

Learn about the potential pitfalls of drugs, treatments


This letter is to warn women not to make two mistakes that I made in 2009. I needed something for my VTI. My doctor prescribed Cipro, which I took without checking for possible side effects.

The second time I got another prescription and then I knew why I had been experiencing nerve damage in my arms and hands. Numbness and tingling is very unpleasant with no cure to my knowledge.

My second mistake is allowing a pessary to be inserted into me because of a prolonged bladder. It caused twice as many problems and cost me $80 that I haven't received back.
