Ciprofloxacin and Dexamethasone Otic

People who have certain bacterial ear infections may benefit from ciprofloxacin/dexamethasone (Ciprodex®). Specifically, this prescription medication is used for treating middle ear infections (known medically as acute otitis media) in children with ear tubes, as well as outer ear infections (known medically as otitis externa, or more commonly "swimmer's ear") in both children and adults.
 
As a type of otic (or ear) drop, ciprofloxacin/dexamethasone is applied to the infected ear twice daily for seven days. The dosage is the same for everyone, regardless of age or the infection being treated. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, side effects are possible and may include ear pain, discomfort, and itching.
