What is Ciprofloxacin?
Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic that comes under the umbrella of fluoroquinolones, commonly available by the brand name Cipro. Ciprofloxacin stops the bacteria’s DNA from replicating, resulting in their death.
Ciprofloxacin is available as a tablet, capsule or oral suspension. It can be taken with or without food and twice a day, preferably at the same time every day. The Ciprofloxacin dosage depends on the severity and type of infection. Some other drugs from the same class include moxifloxacin, ofloxacin and levofloxacin.
The duration of the treatment depends on the illness and severity of the infection. Prescription Ciprofloxacin should be taken as advised to reduce the chances of antibiotic-resistant infection.
