How Does Ciprofloxacin Work?

Cipro works to stop a bacterial infection by blocking an enzyme called DNA-gyrase. This prevents the replication of bacterial DNA. So as your body combats the infection, the bacteria loses its capacity to self-repair and thus stops spreading.

Dosages change from condition to condition, depending on the ideal amount calculated by your doctor. Here is a rough guide on the kind of dosage you might expect.

If you miss a dosage of cipro, take the missed dose immediately UNLESS you only have 2-3 hours before your next dose. In this case, skip the missed dose and resume your regular dosage schedule. Do not take double doses to make up for missed dosages as this may cause serious side effects and adverse reactions.

Doctors recommend taking Cipro tablets as a whole instead of crushing or slicing them since there may be a bitter taste. If you vomit the tablet and it’s still intact, take a new dosage to replace the lost dosage. If your body rejects the second intake, visit your doctor.
