What is Ciprofloxacin

Ciprofloxacin is use to deal with bacterial infections and could be very helpful in traveler's diarrhea. Traveler's diarrhea can be contracted by ingesting a bacteria, virus or parasite and can cause abruptly.

Why choose Ciprofloxacin?

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.

How effective is Ciprofloxacin?

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.

How does Ciprofloxacin work?

How should I take Ciprofloxacin?

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.

How long do I take Ciprofloxacin for?

The dosage you are given will be dependent 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.

What are the side effects of Ciprofloxacin?

Not everyone will suffer from side effects whilst taking Ciprofloxacin though allergic reactions can occur as with any medication. If you suffer from any of these more severe reactions, seek medical help and stop taking the medication right away:

  • muscle pain
  • burning, tingling or numbness in the extremities
  • fever or a deterioration of your condition
  • issues with breathing
  • mental disturbances such as hallucinations or psychotic reactions.
  • diarrhoea containing blood or mucus
  • decreased urination

Most commonly, 1 in 10 people may suffer from nausea or joint pain, especially in children, and 1 in 100 people may experience a wider number of symptoms which can include but are not limited to hyperactivity, headaches, issues with sleeping, vomiting, hives and indigestion.

Before you travel, it is wise to book a free and confidential appointment with a Click Pharmacy doctor to discuss any concerns about possible side effects or worries you may have about the risks involved with your travel and how you can best prepare in advance.
