What is Otiprio used for?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 9 Mar 2016

Otiprio (ciprofloxacin otic suspension) is a prescription fluoroquinolone antibiotic suspension for the ear.

It is given as a single dose by a doctor to treat pediatric patients with bilateral otitis media with effusion (fluid build-up in both ears) undergoing tympanostomy (ear) tube placement surgery.

Fluid may build up in the middle ear as a result of a respiratory virus like a cold, or a sore throat.

Otiprio is liquid at or below room temperature, and when it warms in the ear, it turns into a gel, helping keep the drug in place. After placement in the ear, Otiprio releases the drug over a prolonged period of time.
