Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution, 0.3 as base was prescribed to my 10 year old this summer for ear infection (possible swimmers ear). Why are there so many contradictory responses regarding this medicine. I know it depends on the type of ea
Do not use it.: This class of medications is not approved for pediatric patients if safer antibiotics are available. A single oral dose of the fluoroqunalones may disable. Prescribing an ophthalmic preparation for otic (ear) purposes is inappropriate. The best treatment for swimmers ear is acidifying the ear canal to kill off the yeast and restore normal flora, like Domeboro solution, which is OTC. ...Read more

Nope: Don't do it. Have the earache checked out by a doctor to determine the cause. Most earaches in 3 yr olds involve the middle ear, so anything one put in the outer ear canal wouldn't help anyway. Even if the problem is in the outer ear, don't use eye medications in the ear. No shortcut here. Get the proper medicine and use it according to doctor's instructions. Hope the little one feels better soon. ...Read more
Sure: I assume you are talking about eye drops in your eyes. I would see no problem with that. ...Read more
Not usually: These drops are antibiotic drops and usually do not hurt. You must rule out a perforated ear drum because the middle ear mucosa may be irritated if there is no middle ear infection. If there is no perforation, it is possible that this may be an allergic reaction. We need to know why you are using the ear drops and what the diagnosis has been given to you for this treatment. ...Read more
Yes: Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin is a common antibiotic used for eye infection in both adults and children. It is safe for the eyes. Pediatricians use oral Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin sparingly in children because oral has not been well tested in children and studies indicate that oral Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may lead to joint growth problems as seen in 1 study on doberman puppies. ...Read more
Ask your vet: Possibly, but it definitely makes a difference what you are trying to treat. ...Read more
Should not have any: Noticeable side effects. If your doctor recommended it, ask her/him, so you aren't delaying treatment. Since it's just kept in the ear canal, and you may have some go into your throat area, it should not cause any pain or discomfort, and work quickly. So, ask and report back to your doctor. ...Read more
Doc prescribed Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride for an infection, reading possible side effects. How is this helping me, seems it could cause more issues?
Ask for alternative: Few doctors understand how commonly Cipro (ciprofloxacin) & related drugs cause serious side effects. While most folks do OK with them, a surprisingly high percentage experience debilitating long term toxicity. Thus, I only prescribe them for serious infections when there are no other antibioitcs that would help. Almost always there are safer choices. Ask your doc for a diff. Med. See https://tinyurl.

Yes, but...: Unless your bladder infection is limiting you physically by way of pain or some other restrictions, there is no real reason why you can't do your routine sport. Photosensitivity might be an issue as that is a side effect of ciprofloxacin, so stay out of the sun as much as possible. That means no sports that require you to be out in the sun for a long duration. Indoor sports are fine. Good luck! ...Read more
Using ciloxan, (ciprofloxacin) natural tear drop and eye ointment but now bith eye are infected with the bacteria
Probably viral: Most bacterial infections are in one eye only. Viral commonly spreads to the other eye. Viral does not respond to ciloxan (ciprofloxacin) which can prevent secondary infection but your natural immunity is the best defense against viral. Check with your ophthalmologist to be sure that is the problem if you feel it is getting worse. ...Read more
