Were you looking for information about Ciprofloxacin? Cirpofloxacin is a common misspelling of ciprofloxacin.
If you have a bacterial infection, your healthcare provider may prescribe ciprofloxacin. This antibiotic works by interfering with certain enzymes in the bacteria, which are necessary for the bacteria to multiply.
This medicine is available in several forms, including a regular tablet, an extended-release tablet, an intravenous (IV) solution, an oral liquid suspension, an eye and ear drop, and an eye ointment. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, side effects are possible and can include headaches, nausea, and diarrhea.
