How much Ciprofloxacin you take and how often you take it depends on many factors, including the condition being treated and the age and weight of the patient. If you have any questions about the amount and/or frequency of the Ciprofloxacin you are taking, talk with your health care provider. Carefully read the patient leaflet provided with this medicine and reread it each time you get your prescription refilled. Take Ciprofloxacin exactly as prescribed by your health care provider. Ciprofloxacin may be taken with or without meals. The preferred dosing time is 2 hours after a meal. Drink plenty of liquids while taking Ciprofloxacin. Take antacids that contain magnesium, aluminum, or calcium; iron; zinc; sucralfate; or didanosine chewable tablets or oral solution 2 hours after or 6 hours before taking Ciprofloxacin. Do not take Ciprofloxacin with yogurt or milk alone. However, calcium as part of a meal does not affect Ciprofloxacin. Do not consume products that contain caffeine (coffee, tea, cola) while taking Ciprofloxacin. Stop taking Ciprofloxacin and talk with your doctor if you experience pain, inflammation, or swelling of a tendon. Get plenty of rest and stop exercising until your doctor has determined the cause. Do not treat diarrhea without talking to your doctor. Ciprofloxacin may cause dizziness or lightheadedness. Use caution while driving or performing other tasks requiring alertness, coordination, or physical dexterity. Ciprofloxacin may cause sensitivity to sunlight or other forms of UV light (eg, tanning beds). Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing until tolerance is determined. Stop taking Ciprofloxacin if sunburn-like reactions occur. Lab tests may be required to monitor therapy. Be sure to keep appointments. Do not stop taking Ciprofloxacin without checking with your doctor. Do not take more Ciprofloxacin than prescribed unless advised to do so by your doctor or health care provider.
