Take ciprofloxacin exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
Take ciprofloxacin with a full glass of water (8 ounces). Drink several extra glasses of fluid each day while you are taking ciprofloxacin.
Best of luck... and take care and contact your doctor.-

Also Hon, there is a drug that is called cipro by name and it's for the eyes. LOL
Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic solution is used to treat bacterial infections of the eye including conjunctivitis (pinkeye; infection of the membrane that covers the outside of the eyeball and the inside of the eyelid) and corneal ulcers (infection and loss of tissue in the clear front part of the eye). Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic ointment is used to treat conjunctivitis. Ciprofloxacin is in a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. It works by killing the bacteria that cause infection.
How about that??
I recommend that you research this drug before you take it. This drug is dangerous and can cause long-term effects even in healthy people. I only took five pills and am still miserable 1 1/2 later. Go to askapatient.com or fqresearch.org to learn more about Cipro. If you don't want to take the risk have your doctor prescribe a safer alternative.
