Ciprofloxacin - Overview
Ciprofloxacin, marketed under the brand name Cipro, is an antibiotic medication prescribed to people who need treatment for an infection thought to be caused by an organism susceptible to ciprofloxacin treatment. Push Health connects people who might need a ciprofloxacin prescription with online medical providers who can prescribe ciprofloxacin medication, including ciprofloxacin 250 mg and ciprofloxacin 500 mg tablets and ciprofloxacin oral suspension, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Ciprofloxacin Used For?
Ciprofloxacin prescription medication belongs to a class of medications known as fluoroquinolones. Ciprofloxacin is indicated for use in adults with various types of infections, including urinary tract infections, sinus infections, skin infections, bone and joint infections, diarrhea, typhoid fever, and lower respiratory tract infection that have susceptible bacteria. Ciprofloxacin tablets consist of ciprofloxacin hydrochloride which is found as a faintly yellowish to light yellow crystalline substance. The bioavailability of ciprofloxacin after oral administration might be affected by use of antacids, polymeric phosphate binders, sucralfate, and dairy products. The serum elimination half-life of ciprofloxacin is roughly four hours in people with normal renal function. In people with impaired kidney function, ciprofloxacin's half life is slightly prolonged. Ciprofloxacin prescription medication is similar to the fluoroquinolone antibiotics levofloxacin (Levaquin), moxifloxacin (Avelox, Vigamox) and ofloxacin (Ocuflox). Ciprofloxacin is combined with dexamethasone (Decadron, TaperDex) in the ear medication Ciprodex.
Ciprofloxacin - Dosage And Cost
Ciprofloxacin medication is available in 250 mg and 500 mg yellowish, film-coated tablets and 5% and 10% oral suspensions. When given as an oral tablet, the absolute bioavailability of ciprofloxacin is 70% and maximum serum concentrations occur 1 to 2 hours after oral dosing. Ciprofloxacin medication is considered affordable as it is available at most pharmacies for less that fifty cents per pill. Depending on one's insurance, ciprofloxacin's costs may be fully covered. Ciprofloxacin coupons are sometimes made available to help reduce the cost of the medication.
Can One Buy Cipro Online?
Ciprofloxacin is a prescription medication in the United States. As a result, ciprofloxacin requires a consultation with a medical provider before it can be obtained from a pharmacy and is not available as ciprofloxacin OTC (over-the-counter). Consequently, one cannot simply buy ciprofloxacin online without going through the prescription process. Push Health can help people in need of a ciprofloxacin prescription get connected to a medical provider who can prescribe ciprofloxacin HCl medication, including ciprofloxacin 500 mg tablets, when appropriate.
Ciprofloxacin - Side Effects
As might be expected, ciprofloxacin medication can cause side effects. The most common adverse reactions associated with ciprofloxacin use include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, rash and liver issues. Serious side effects of ciprofloxacin use include tendinitis, tendon rupture, peripheral neuropathy, central nervous system effects, exacerbation of myasthenia gravis, hepatotoxicity and QT prolongation. Ciprofloxacin should not be used by people with hypersensitivity or an allergy to ciprofloxacin or other quinolone medications. Ciprofloxacin and alcohol should not be used together. Ciprofloxacin should not be administered concomitantly with tizanidine (Zanaflex). Side effects concerning ciprofloxacin prescription medication use should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider.
