My doctor changed the antibiotic to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) because Biaxin didn't help treat my middle ear infection. Will Cipro (ciprofloxacin) cure it?

Antibiotic. You don't say what you are being treated for, what the causative organism is, whether it is sensitive to the antibiotics that have been prescribed, etc. Cannot possibly answer your question without more data.
