Common and Rare Reactions to Ciprofloxacin/Hydrocortisone

Common Side Effects

Ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using the drug were carefully documented. In clinical trials, the most commonly reported side effect was a headache, which occurred in up to 1.2 percent of people.

Uncommon Ciprofloxacin/Hydrocortisone Side Effects

Some side effects of ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone were reported rarely in clinical trials. Because they occurred so infrequently, it is difficult to tell if these problems were due to ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone use or something else. These rare side effects, occurring in less than 1 percent of people, included:
  • Itching
  • Migraine headache
  • Reduced feeling or sensation in the skin
  • Sensations of tingling, numbness, or "pins and needles" of the skin
  • Cough
  • Hair loss.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
