How does Generic Cipro work?
Generic Cipro provides health benefits in the body by fighting off bacteria,
those which can cause an infection, which may include pulmonary infections and those of the other organs, as well as infections caused by sexually-transmitted diseases.
How to take Cipro.
Generic Cipro is usually available in film-coated tablet form, with dosage strengths of 250 mg, 500 mg, and 750 mg.
Intake of the medication should be done as prescribed by a physician, or as directed on the label instructions.
Intake can be made with a tall glass of water if needed; the body should also be constantly hydrated during treatment,
so a few extra glasses of fluids every day are recommended. The drug may be taken with or without previous food intake.
The tablets are meant to be swallowed whole in order to gradually release the substance within the body.
Avoid breaking, crushing, or chewing the tablets before ingestion.
Discontinue use and get immediate medical help in the presence of an allergic reaction, as well as chest pain, rapid heartbeat,
frequent urination, watery and/or bloody diarrhea, jaundice, joint pain and swollenness, and episodes of convulsion and black-outs.
Common adverse effects of intake include vomiting and nausea, blurry vision, insomnia, stiff joints and painful muscles,
dizziness or drowsiness, and heightened skin sensitivity with sunlight.
Precautions and Interactions.
Users should avoid caffeine intake during treatment of Cipro, as the latter can enhance the stimulating effects of the former.
The skin is also more sensitive to sunlight, so prolonged exposure to the sun or to tanning beds are strongly discouraged.
Antibiotic medications may cause symptoms of diarrhea; do not take medications for it unless otherwise instructed by a physician to do so.
Medicines which can interact with the potency of Cipro include, but are not restricted to calcium salts, magnesium salts,
and aluminum salts; multivitamin supplements which contain zinc, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium; mexiletine;
doxercalciferol; medications for diabetes; sodium bicarbonate, and sucralfate.
Take a missed dose of Generic Cipro as soon as necessary; the succeeding intake doses should then be ingested
upon following the adjusted schedule with respect to the missed dose.
Intake of a missed dose should be made under the condition that the next dose is not near enough as to lead to a double dose.
Otherwise, the regular intake schedule should be followed, and the missed dose skipped altogether.
Indications of an overdose of Cipro can include, but are not limited to pale skin with a blue tinge on the lips,
problems in urinating, weakness, and seizures. In the presence of such symptoms, immediately seek for medical help.
Store Generic Cipro within normal room temperatures, away from direct heat and light.
Make sure that the drug is within the potency period. Expired medications may not provide the benefits normally obtained from them.
