The active ingredient in Ciprofloxacin Tablets is Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride. This ingredient is effective at treating bacterial infections.

While they are effectively used for the same purpose, the main difference is branding and price. Ciproxin is the branded version of Ciprofloxacin making it cost more than Ciprofloxacin Tablets.

If you forget to take your dose of Ciprofloxacin Tablets you should take it as soon as you remember unless it is almost time for your next dose. If it is almost time for your next dose you should skip the previous dose and continue as normal. You should never take two doses at once, even if you are making up for a mixed one.

As a broad-spectrum antibiotic, it can effectively fight a wide variety of bacteria including those found in certain high risk areas of the world where travellers diarrhoea can be picked up easily. It does this by blocking the enzymes which the bacteria rely on for survival. Studies have shown that it is highly effective against certain gastrointestinal infections such as salmonella, though in some areas of the world, the bacteria has grown a resistance to it which means it is no longer effective in specific countries. In this instance, you will be recommended another type of antibiotic and you can discuss this with your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor before going ahead and purchasing a prescription prior to travel to ensure that you are taking the right medication for your trip.
Ciprofloxacin is commonly prescribed and recommended by doctors to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. As such, there is a lot of research and information on this particular medication to demonstrate that it is effective as a form of treatment, making it a popular option.
Other reasons to choose Ciprofloxacin are due to it being beneficial for a patient with a low white blood cell count or for those who are suffering from a fever brought about by a bacterial infection. It can also be taken with or without food making it a good option for anyone suffering from travellers diarrhoea where you may not be able to eat much food for a few days whilst the infection is active.
You can purchase a course of Ciprofloxacin online via Click Pharmacy after completing and submitting a short self assessment. The answers from your questionnaire will enable the doctors to assess whether this is the correct treatment for you based on a number of factors including where you are travelling too, any other medication you may already be taking as well as other medical issues you already suffer with.
Ciprofloxacin works by blocking an enzyme in the body known as DNA-gyrase which the bacteria causing the illness feeds upon. It works by replicating and repairing the bacteria’s DNA, therefore by stopping this enzyme the bacteria is killed and the infection clears.
It’s crucial you follow the directions which come with your prescription, or take it as recommended by your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor. The prescription must be continued to completion, even if you feel you are better.
This medication can be taken with or without food but should always be swallowed alongside plenty of water to stop crystals forming in your urine. It must not be taken with dairy products such as milk or yoghurt as it can interact with the drug making it less effective. Ciprofloxacin must be taken as a whole tablet at the same time each day and the tablet must not be chewed, broken or crushed.
The dosage you are given will be dependant on the severity of your particular bacterial infection or, if you are getting a prescription to take with you in case of catching an infection, it will be based on where in the world you will be travelling.
Generally speaking, for travellers diarrhoea you would be recommended 500 mg every 12 hours for anywhere between five and seven days, or as suggested by your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor prior to travel. This may change depending on how high risk the area you are travelling in has been classed.

Taking medication is generally not recommended whilst breastfeeding unless absolutely necessary, but studies have shown that the amount of this drug excreted into the milk is extremely low. The dose of Ciprofloxacin in the milk is at its highest point after around 2 hours and especially minimal after 3 to 4 hours. As such, if you do require this drug whilst breastfeeding then it is best that the mother avoids breastfeeding until after this amount of time has passed from taking the last dose.
If you do take Ciprofloxacin whilst breastfeeding, it is recommended that you monitor the infant for possible side effects which may include diarrhoea, thrush or nappy rash.
You should discuss taking this medication with your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding prior to purchasing it to put your mind at rest.
