Can I use ciprofloxacin for sore throat? I have sore throat only and no cough, fever etc.

Sore throat. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is not a drug we usually prescribe for sore throat. Generally, it's unwise to take left over antibiotics without speaking to a doctor. If the sore throat is the result of viral infection, antibiotics will not be helpful.
NO. You need an antibiotic only if you have a bacterial infection, not for a viral infection If the sore throat continues, go get a TC and see if you have strep. If it is viral, the cipro (ciprofloxacin) will not help, but will increase the incidence of bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Dr. can check throat. New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. Read more...
