Yes, unfortunately, there are now several reports about cipro in particular being associated with dilation of the aorta and leading to aneurysms. If you have a know dilated blood vessel, please be sure to mention this to the provider if he/she should start to give you a prescription for cipro whether this is an alternative. In addition, other antibiotics in this same class have caused problems with the tendons.
As a general rule, all antibiotics damage your bacteria in your body (in your intestines) which help to fight off diseases and improve your immunity. Providers now are trying to avoid prescribing an antibiotic unless it is absolutely necessary. You should ask the provider how important it is for you to take an antibiotic before accepting it.
