Also can it cause an UTI
There are no contraindications between these 2 drugs and Cipro is not on the list of drugs that you shouldn't take with Dexilant. Here's a precaution I thought you may want to see for Dexilant:
Taking a proton pump inhibitor such as Dexilant/dexlansoprazole may increase your risk of bone fracture in the hip, wrist, or spine. This effect has occurred mostly in people who have taken the medicine long term or at high doses, and in those who are age 50 and older. It is not clear whether dexlansoprazole is the actual cause of an increased risk of fracture
Cipro is one of several drugs that are under increasing scrutiny for causing severe, crippling ruptures of tendons and related problems. Here's some of the information on Cipro:
As of October 1994, 25 cases of Achilles tendon rupture had been reported to the US FDA. Some ruptures have also occurred in the hand or shoulder. Other risk factors identified included age and corticosteroid use.
There had been 23 reports of tendonitis submitted to the Australian Adverse Drug Reactions Committee (ADRAC) between 2006 and 2008, including reports of Achilles tendonitis, tendon rupture, and tendon pain and swelling. The reports were primarily in male patients (15 cases) older than 56 years who used this drug for 2 to 14 days. In 19 of the reported cases, a fluoroquinolone (generally ciprofloxacin) was the primary suspect; however, details of concomitant serious medical conditions were not documented in most of the reports.
Musculoskeletal side effects reported in pediatric patients included arthralgia, abnormal gait, abnormal joint exam, joint sprains, leg pain, back pain, arthrosis, bone pain, pain, myalgia, arm pain, and decreased range of motion in a joint (knee, elbow, ankle, hip, wrist, shoulder).
Myalgia, tendinitis, and tendon rupture have also been reported during postmarketing experience.
I myself have been on Cipro without any problems, but I want you to have all of the precautionary information to help you make a good informed decision.
