Ciproxin

Ciproxin is a type of antibiotic which is in the fluoroquinolone family. It contains an active substance known as ciprofloxacin which is responsible for destroying bacteria which cause infections. However, it will only work with certain bacteria strains.

This medication is an effective treatment for traveller’s diarrhoea, lung and airways bacterial infections, bacterial throat and ear infections, bacterial eye infections, urinary tract infections, prostate gland bacterial infections, skin bacterial infections, pelvis or uterus bacterial infections and bacterial infections of the abdomen just to mention a few.

Ciproxin can be purchased only if you buy the diarrhoea pack and is currently not available separately from Loxdoc.

How does Ciproxin work?

Ciproxin effectively destroys bacteria which causes infections. Basically, it enters bacterial cells and inhibits a bacterial enzyme commonly known as DNA-gyrase. What this enzyme does is that it replicates and repairs the DNA of the bacteria. Therefore, by inhibiting the enzyme, it means that the bacteria will not be able to reproduce or repair, thus killing the bacteria.

This antibiotic can kill various types of bacteria, most of which are actually resistant to other frequently used antibiotics. It is very effective against a group of bacteria known as Gram-negative bacteria. This group includes bacteria such as shigella, salmonella and campylobacter. The medicine can treat quite a lot of infections and a single dose can be used to treat gonorrhoea.

How do I take Ciproxin?

How much you need to take and the time period largely depends on the kind of infection you have and your kidney function. It is always important to follow your doctor’s instructions whenever you are given medication, especially prescription medication. As for Ciproxin, it is normally taken 2 times a day and you must make certain that you swallow the tablets; don’t chew them. If it is in liquid form, make sure that you shake the bottle first and only make use of the spoon that comes with the medication; don’t use a regular spoon as it might not give you the correct measurement.

You can take the medication with food or without it. However, when you take Ciproxin, don’t take it at the same time with milk, antacids, yoghurt, and medicines which have calcium, magnesium, aluminium, zinc or iron. These can actually minimise the absorption of the medicine from your gut. Also make it a point that you complete the prescribed course, unless the doctor says otherwise.
