Therapeutic Note(s)

CIPROFLOXACIN
Ciprofloxacin is not intended for the treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria in the absence of risk factors. Avoid use in pregnancy and children < 18 years of age. Ciprofloxacin inhibits theophylline clearance and also affects phenytoin kinetics. Theophylline doses should be decreased and blood levels of phenytoin or theophylline monitored when either of these drugs is used concomitantly with ciprofloxacin.
