Hepatobiliary system Cases of hepatic necrosis and life-threatening hepatic failure have been reported with ciprofloxacin see section 4, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab. In the event of any signs and symptoms of hepatic disease such as anorexia, jaundice, dark urine, pruritus or tender abdomentreatment should be discontinued. Glucosephosphate dehydrogenase deficiency Haemolytic reactions have been reported with ciprofloxacin in patients with glucosephosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
Ciprofloxacin should be avoided in these patients unless the potential benefit 500mg considered to outweigh 500mg possible risk.
In this case, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab, potential occurrence of haemolysis should be monitored, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab. Resistance During or following a course of treatment with ciprofloxacin bacteria that demonstrate resistance to ciprofloxacin may be isolated, tab or without 500mg clinically ciprofloxacin superinfection.
Cytochrome P Ciprofloxacin inhibits CYP1A2 and ciprofloxacin may cause increased serum concentration of concomitantly administered substances metabolized by this enzyme e. Co-administration of ciprofloxacin and tizanidine is contraindicated. Therefore patients taking these substances ciprofloxacin with ciprofloxacin should be monitored closely for 500mg signs of overdose, and determination of serum concentrations e. Methotrexate The concomitant use of ciprofloxacin with methotrexate is not recommended see section 4.
Interaction with tests The in-vitro activity of ciprofloxacin against Mycobacterium tuberculosis might give false negative bacteriological test results in specimens from patients currently taking ciprofloxacin.

Metoclopramide Metoclopramide accelerates the absorption of ciprofloxacin oral resulting tab a shorter time to reach maximum plasma concentrations. No effect was seen on the bioavailability of ciprofloxacin, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab. Omeprazole Concomitant administration of ciprofloxacin and omeprazole containing medicinal products results in a 500mg reduction of Cmax and AUC of ciprofloxacin, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab.

Phenytoin Simultaneous administration of ciprofloxacin and tab may result in increased or reduced serum levels of phenytoin such that monitoring of drug levels is recommended.
Cyclosporin A transient rise ciprofloxacin the concentration of serum 500mg was observed when ciprofloxacin and cyclosporin containing medicinal products were administered simultaneously, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab. Therefore, it is frequently twice a week necessary to control tab serum creatinine concentrations in these patients. Vitamin K antagonists Simultaneous administration of ciprofloxacin with a vitamin K antagonist may augment its anticoagulant effects.

The risk may vary with the underlying infection, ciprofloxacin 500mg tab, age and general status of the patient so that the contribution 500mg ciprofloxacin to tab increase in INR international normalized ratio is difficult to assess.
