Can ciprofloxacin be taken for cold infection?
Asked by Isaura Kezar 6 months ago.
Ciprofloxacin is a broad spectrum antibiotic. but evem so, it is not recommended for a first hand cold antibiotic. if i may suggest, i would rather you take co-amoxiclav (augmentin) 500 mg 2x daily(every 12 hours) for 7 days. this antibiotic specializes on respiratory tract infections. for your reference, below is a list of the limitations of Ciprofloxacin. Ciprofloxacin is limited to the treatment of proven bacterial infections such as: - Urinary tract infections (not recommended as a first line antibiotic) - Acute uncomplicated cystitis in females - Chronic bacterial prostatitis (not recommended as a first line antibiotic choice) - Lower respiratory tract infections (not recommended as a first line antibiotic choice) - Acute sinusitis (not recommended as a first line antibiotic choice) - Skin and skin structure infections - Bone and joint infections - Infectious diarrhea - Typhoid fever (enteric fever) caused by Salmonella typhi - Uncomplicated cervical and urethra gonorrhea (due to N. gonorrhoeae) – however, this indication is no longer effective in some areas (i.e. Asian Countries, United States, Canada and Hawaii) and Scotland due to bacterial resistance. Fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended in the USA for this indication. - Ciprofloxacin is not recommended for the treatment of tuberculosis. As well as in combination with other specific drugs: - Complicated intra-abdominal infections (in combination with metronidazole); - Empirical therapy for febrile neutropenic patients (in combination with piperacillin) Answered by Tessa Posa 6 months ago.

How dangerous is Ciprofloxacin?
My mother has been subscribed a bottle of Ciprofloxacin. But she's afraid to take it b/c of the side effects. She has no conditions whatsoever.
Asked by Jennefer Bezak 6 months ago.
Ciprofloxacin is a potent antibiotic, but it's not any more dangerous than any other antibiotic. Your mom is more likely to have certain side effects like nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, and possibly candida infections caused by the antibiotics, because this type of antibiotic is so much stronger than many others. Very strong antibiotics make you more likely to have GI upsets and yeast infections because the antibiotics don't discriminate between good and bad bacteria, it just kills all of them. If your mom takes probiotics while she's taking the antibiotics she can decrease the likelihood of her having stomach upsets or yeast infections during or after the course of antibiotic treatment. I had to take 2 weeks of Ciprofloxacin for an antibiotic-resistant staph infection in my skin 2 years ago and I had mild stomach upsets, but nothing beyond that. If your mom has any really severe reactions like swelling, difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness, etc. then she should go to the E.R. right away, but she should be just fine. Answered by Zelma Edgemon 6 months ago.
Are you shure she has no symtoms? Something could be wrong with her that she didnt tell you about. Ciprofloxacin is used to clear up bacterical infections, so make sure you know the full story before you post a question. Answered by Marietta Doxtator 6 months ago.
Cipro should never be taken. It is a joke that doctors in the us still prescribe this stuff. It causes cell death in many mammals and alters human dna amongst other things. If you have taken this stuff and have had nerve pain or muscle tightness or soreness you may want to get your dna tested to see the extent of the damage this drug has done to your dna. There are currently 2 black box warnings on this product and there most likely will be another in the future. There are no treatments or cures for cipro poisoning please avoid this drug at all costs.

Ciproxin Oral suspension 250MG/5ml Ciprofloxacin?
her hand had just a normal infection she had her middle and ring fingers fused and they were seperated she also got skin graph done the amount she is given is 0.8ml every 12 hours
Asked by Petrina Carina 6 months ago.
Ciprofloxacin is not usually recommended in children and adolescents but where the benefit outweighs the risk then it may be used. You haven't given details of the type of infection or how many spoonfuls of medicine the child has to take and how many times a day they are instructed to take it? The maximum dose is usually 750mg twice daily but this also depends on the child's weight. How much do they weigh? Also Ciprofloxacin is a Quinolone which can cause tendonitis and is therefore contra-indicated in patients with tendon disorders. Average weight of a one yr old child is 10 kg and the recommended dose of Ciprofloxacin is 5 to 15mg per kg for a child of this age. Therefore the dose will be between 50 to 150 mg twice daily. Your child is receiving the minimum dose as there is 50mg in 1ml of the 250mg/5ml suspension. She is only receiving 0.8mls which is below 50mg. The dose is therefore not too strong for her.as the maximum dose for a child her age is 300mg daily (150 mg twice a day) and she is only receiving just under 100mg daily (50mg twice a day) The infection may only be sensitive to this antibiotic which is why the doctor prescribed it. Some other antibiotics may not clear the infection up if tried. A smaller dose may be given to children under 2 yrs even though the leaflet says its for children over this age only. Usually a 5ml spoonful is given for children over this age and for adults but you have been instructed otherwise. Make sure you complete the course of antibiotics so the infection will clear up.

Asked by Winston Sisneroz 6 months ago.
Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic in a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones. Ciprofloxacin fights bacteria in the body. Ciprofloxacin is used to treat various types of bacterial infections.It may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. There is not restriction for your continuing the regular and normal working when you take Ciprofloxacin. However you should know the following side effects which you may notice and take precaution if needed. If you experience any of the following serious side effects, stop taking ciprofloxacin and seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately: * an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives); * seizures; * confusion or hallucinations; * liver damage (yellowing of the skin or eyes, nausea, abdominal pain or discomfort, unusual bleeding or bruising, severe fatigue); or * muscle or joint pain; * skin rash; or * chest pain, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, or swelling of the legs or feet. If you experience any of the following less serious side effects, continue taking ciprofloxacin and talk to your doctor: * nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, * headache; * dizziness or lightheadedness; * drowsiness; * insomnia; * ringing in the ears; or * increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.- Answered by Don Speares 6 months ago.
Cipro is known to cause joint & cartilage swelling and Achilles tendon ruptures. I would think it wise to play it safe and give vigorous workouts a break until you're done with the antibiotic therapy. Cipro is excreted almost completely from the body 24 hours after dosing.

SIDE EFFECTS Adverse Reactions in Adult Patients: During clinical investigations with oral and parenteral ciprofloxacin, 49,038 patients received courses of the drug. Most of the adverse events reported were described as only mild or moderate in severity, abated soon after the drug was discontinued, and required no treatment. Ciprofloxacin was discontinued because of an adverse event in 1.0% of orally treated patients. The most frequently reported drug related events, from clinical trials of all formulations, all dosages, all drug-therapy durations, and for all indications of ciprofloxacin therapy were nausea (2.5%), diarrhea (1.6%), liver function tests abnormal (1.3%), vomiting (1.0%), and rash (1.0%). Additional medically important events that occurred in less than 1% of ciprofloxacin patients are listed below. BODY AS A WHOLE: headache, abdominal pain/discomfort, foot pain, pain, pain in extremities, injection site reaction (ciprofloxacin intravenous) CARDIOVASCULAR: palpitation, atrial flutter, ventricular ectopy, syncope, hypertension, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, cardiopulmonary arrest, cerebral thrombosis, phlebitis, tachycardia, migraine, hypotension CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: restlessness, dizziness, lightheadedness, insomnia, nightmares, hallucinations, manic reaction, irritability, tremor, ataxia, convulsive seizures, lethargy, drowsiness, weakness, malaise, anorexia, phobia, depersonalization, depression, paresthesia, abnormal gait, grand mal convulsion GASTROINTESTINAL: painful oral mucosa, oral candidiasis, dysphagia, intestinal perforation, gastrointestinal bleeding, cholestatic jaundice, hepatitis HEMIC/LYMPHATIC: lymphadenopathy, petechia METABOLIC/NUTRITIONAL: amylase increase, lipase increase MUSCULOSKELETAL: arthralgia or back pain, joint stiffness, achiness, neck or chest pain, flare up of gout RENAL/UROGENITAL: interstitial nephritis, nephritis, renal failure, polyuria, urinary retention, urethral bleeding, vaginitis, acidosis, breast pain RESPIRATORY: dyspnea, epistaxis, laryngeal or pulmonary edema, hiccough, hemoptysis, bronchospasm, pulmonary embolism SKIN/HYPERSENSITIVITY: allergic reaction, pruritus, urticaria, photosensitivity/ phototoxicity reaction, flushing, fever, chills, angioedema, edema of the face, neck, lips, conjunctivae or hands, cutaneous candidiasis, hyperpigmentation, erythema nodosum, sweating SPECIAL SENSES: blurred vision, disturbed vision (change in color perception, overbrightness of lights), decreased visual acuity, diplopia, eye pain, tinnitus, hearing loss, bad taste, chromatopsia In several instances nausea, vomiting, tremor, irritability, or palpitation were judged by investigators to be related to elevated serum levels of theophylline possibly as a result of drug interaction with ciprofloxacin. In randomized, double-blind controlled clinical trials comparing ciprofloxacin tablets (500 mg BID) to cefuroxime axetil (250 mg - 500 mg BID) and to clarithromycin (500 mg BID) in patients with respiratory tract infections, ciprofloxacin demonstrated a CNS adverse event profile comparable to the control drugs.

Asked by Jacquelin Wydo 6 months ago.
Please, MEDICAL responses only (Note that you are NOT providing medical advice if you are a 16 year-old with Google). Yesterday I was bitten by my cat serenity in the meaty part of the palm of my hand at the base of the thumb, by one of my house cats (my fault, I was "wrestling" her with my hand and didn't pull back when she growled). It was a goodly bite, enough to bleed freely, though the actual tear is only about 1cm. The bite itself is approximately 1cm in length, perhaps 1.5-2cm below the lowermost joint of the thumb. I immediately flushed it with hot water and anti-bacterial soap, and then used some of that hand sanitizer goop. She's current with all of her shots (I'm 100% certain on that piece), but it appears to be infected. It's been getting progressively more uncomfortable throughout the day. Visually, it's nominally swollen (I have a visible bump surrounding the penetration), and red for perhaps a half inch in diameter around the mark. More troubling is the stiffness (and actual discomfort, maybe a 2-3 on the pain scale) I feel down the length of my thumb, and the tingling sensation I feel as far away as 2 inches. I'm well aware that there's an 80+% chance of infection from a cat bite, and that spreading pain is a bad sign. I'm also aware that P. Multocida is the likely culprit. Cipro can be used in cases of a penicillin-allergic patient (I'm not penicillin-allergic, but I have Cipro on hand). Is it a sufficient treatment without a secondary (clindamycin?), or should I be concerned? Answered by Jacob Louise 6 months ago.
Tennis., thank you, that was a very salient, relevant response. I'm aware that as a monotreatment it's not 100%, but I have a hysterical (med-student) fiance screaming I need to rush to the hospital ASAP.

When they are well-reasoned, coherent responses, such as that of Tennis., that provide me with details I can verify online, then yes, yes I do. When they come in the form of petty vengeful ignorance, no, not really. I suppose the key differential lies in the fact that I hold very little value to an arbitrary assignation of knowledge.

Ciprofloxacin only treats certain types of bacteria. Pasteurella is the type of bacteria in a cat's mouth that generally infects humans after a bite. Ciprofloxacin is generally only used to treat various bacterias in the kidneys, intestines, and urinary tract. The class of bacteria it mostly treats is called Gram-negative. I had a kidney infection involving the Gram- negative bacteria E.Coli, which was not eradicated by the Ciprofloxacin, so not all types of this bacteria can be treated with one drug. Most strains of Pasteurella can be treated with any of the -oxacin class medications, but that is assuming you have been infected with Pasteurella. I seriously suggest you see a doctor to be positive about the treatment route. Pasteurella kills up to 20 people in the U.S. annually when not treated properly. Hope you get better. Answered by Cameron Frush 6 months ago.
Possibly, but you don't know for sure what the "culprit" is, and Cipro is a really strong antibiotic. I wouldn't want to risk side effects or becoming resistant to it, just for a cat bite. I would wash it repeatedly with hydrogen peroxide, and then apply a topical antibiotic like Neosporin. Answered by Evie Finkelman 6 months ago.
Cipro For Cats Answered by Lina Grunau 6 months ago.
Cipro is a really good antibiotic, good for most things. It certainly wouldn't hurt, granted you have enough for a full course of treatment (several days). If it were me, I'd give it a shot, but if it starts getting worse or doesn't feel better on the second or definitely third day, go to a doctor. Also it wouldn't hurt to use hydrogen peroxide, keep the area clean, blah, blah, blah, I'm sure you know that. I would definitely try it. Good luck! Answered by Grisel Gettens 6 months ago.

Answered by Kathlene Dendy 6 months ago.
a) ciprofloxacin inhibits transcription > helicase grinds to a halt > can't make mRNA (need to relieve torsional strain resulting from unravelling DNA strands) > no template for protein synthesis erythromycin inhibits translation > EF-tu-tRNA-aa complex can't enter A site of ribosome > initiation/elongation can't occur > mRNA cannot be translated acyclovir inhibits transcription > acyclovir incorporated into mRNA strand > no phosphate group available on acyclovir to perform attack on incoming nucleotide (in other words no elongation for transcription) b) Erythromycin is best against bacteria because it targets bacterial ribosomal subunits (odd numbered) and not eukaryotic ribosomal subunits (even numbered) c) Acyclovir is probably best against viruses to prevent transcription of needed proteins. Some viruses have ssDNA so they don't need to unwind it. Also, other viruses have ssRNA, so they already have the mRNA needed to make proteins. However, vacyclovir isn't useful in all cases. But I would say it is generally the most effective for the most cases. d) Acyclovir because I don't think the Ciprofloxacin drug is able to get into the cell's nucleus, so it won't affect production of mRNA (in eukaryotes, transcription is in nucleus, not cytosol).

Asked by Patria Mccaw 6 months ago.
Ciprofloxacin is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is used to treat infections ranging from mild strep to more complicated pneumonias. Because it kills a large range of bacteria it is often prescribed so that the person doesn't develop a secondary infection while the immune system is lowered. Your best bet is to call your mom's primary care physician and ask him/her exactly what the tests showed and what the antibiotics were ordered for. Answered by Josette Swaringen 6 months ago.
You should take it even if you have not been infected. Absolutely! It is an antibiotic which is frequently used on other infections. You are not going to have any lasting effects. It will save your life if you are exposed to meningococcemia. It is very important to be immunized as well. People take days and days worth of Ciprofloxacin for infections which are much less serious. Please take this seriously. Dont mess around because you are afraid to take 1 antibiotic tablet.
