Ciprofloxacin/dexamethasone (Ciprodex) is an antibiotic/steroid combination product in a sterile suspension. Ciprodex contains the synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial agent, ciprofloxacin hydrochloride (0.3%), combined with the anti-inflammatory corticosteroid, dexamethasone (0.1%), in a sterile, preserved suspension for otic use. Ciprodex is typically given twice a day in each infected ear, 4 drops per ear, for as long as prescribed by the doctor (usually 7 days).

dbo:abstract
  • Ciprofloxacin/dexamethasone (Ciprodex) is an antibiotic/steroid combination product in a sterile suspension. Ciprodex contains the synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial agent, ciprofloxacin hydrochloride (0.3%), combined with the anti-inflammatory corticosteroid, dexamethasone (0.1%), in a sterile, preserved suspension for otic use. Ciprofloxacin, a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, has shown in vitro activity against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenza, Moraxella catarrhalis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Dexamethasone acts as an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid. Ciprodex is indicated for use in the treatment of acute otitis media and acute otitis externa (swimmer’s ear) in ages 6 months and older. Ciprodex should be avoided in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to ciprofloxacin or other quinolones and should not be used to treat viral infections. Ciprodex is typically given twice a day in each infected ear, 4 drops per ear, for as long as prescribed by the doctor (usually 7 days). (en)
