If you have a bacterial infection, your healthcare provider may prescribe ciprofloxacin intravenous (IV) solution. Your dosage will depend on several factors, such as the type and severity of your infection, your age, and other medications you are taking.
If your healthcare provider prescribes ciprofloxacin IV, there are two strengths available: ciprofloxacin (Cipro®) IV solution in 200-mg and 400-mg strengths. Regardless of the specific amount, it is important to finish the entire course of this antibiotic, even if you feel better within a few days. Stopping this medication too soon may cause your infection to return or lead to antibiotic resistance.
