Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone) for Otitis Media: I like how it cleans out my ear. It calmed down my pain in 2 days. I'm using 4 drops twice a day. The only problem is a little loss of hearing, I believe it's the wax built up inside my ear and the infection. Now I'm going to get my ear cleaned by my doctor today.
Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone) for Otitis Media: This always does the trick for my ear infections. I have ear tubes and Ciprodex is far more effective than anything taken orally. I don't get side effects.
Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone): I had gone through 2 doctors, and 2 different prescriptions before going to a third doctor and getting these drops, They worked great for me, however, I developed another infection in my other ear and so far these drops are doing nothing for the second infection. And as for the cost, I don't know about States... but in Canada it's around $60 without a plan and I got it for $7.47 with my plan.
Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone) for Otitis Media: I've been using this medication for 3 days now. The pain from my infection is gone, but the ringing in my ear is still there, and everything is muffled. I am also on an oral antibiotic for tonsilitis and sinus infection as well. Overall I am very happy with this medication.
Only downside is that if I had not had insurance this medication would have cost $101, with insurance it was only $25.
Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone) for Otitis Media: Ciprodex was prescribed by my ENT doctor in Portland Oregon in January 2008. Immediately after using this drug I developed serious vertigo issues that resulted in a fall. I also got tinnitus, ringing in the ears which is especially annoying.

Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin / dexamethasone) for Otitis Media: My two year old had severe ear infection and did not respond to this antibiotic at all so after five straight days of 104 temperature and vomiting the doctor gave a shot of Rocephin which broke the fever immediately and started the healing of the ears and then finished with a round of Augmentin. We did however get the severe diaper rash that the letter said could accompany this medication.
