What is Ciprodex and How to Take It

Ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone are two drugs included in this combination product. A member of the fluoroquinolone drug class, ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic. It is applied to the management of bacterial infections. In the category of drugs known as corticosteroids, dexamethasone is included in reducing inflammation corticosteroids.

Children with tubes in their ears aged six months and older can receive treatment for bacterial middle ear infections with ciprofloxacin-dexamethasone ear drops. People aged one and older can also use them to treat outer ear infections. There may be a variety of brands and dosage forms available for this medication.

Ciprodex ear drops over the counter are not available. Follow the Ciprodex ear drop dosage advised by your doctor carefully and keep the infected ear clean and dry. Avoid getting the medicine in your eyes, nose, or mouth or injecting it. Warm the drops in your hands and shake the bottle before use. Lie on your side with the infected ear up, and after applying drops, keep the ear tilted up for 60 seconds.

Avoid touching the applicator tip to maintain sterility. For middle ear infections with tubes, gently press the ear opening’s projection to allow drops through the tube. For outer ear infections, pull the ear lobe up and back. Complete the entire treatment course even if symptoms improve. Dosage varies, so follow your doctor’s instructions. Take it when possible if you miss a dose, but avoid doubling doses.
