How to use Ciperus
Read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking Ciperus and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
This medication may be taken with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day (every 12 hours) in the morning and evening.
Shake the container well for 15 seconds before pouring each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Do not chew the contents of the suspension.
Do not use the suspension with feeding tubes because the suspension may clog the tube.
The dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication unless your doctor tells you otherwise.
Take this medication at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after taking other products that may bind to it, decreasing its effectiveness. Ask your pharmacist about the other products you take. Some examples include: quinapril, sevelamer, sucralfate, vitamins/minerals (including iron and zinc supplements), and products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium (such as antacids, didanosine solution, calcium supplements).
Calcium-rich foods, including dairy products (such as milk, yogurt) or calcium-enriched juice, can also decrease the effect of this medication. Take this medication at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after eating calcium-rich foods, unless you are eating these foods as part of a larger meal that contains other (non-calcium-rich) foods. These other foods decrease the calcium binding effect.
Ask your doctor or pharmacist about safely using nutritional supplements/replacements with this medication.
For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take this medication at the same time(s) every day.
Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.
Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Your dose of Ciperus will depend on the type of bacterial infection you have.
Ciperus comes in regular and extended-release tablets and as a liquid.
Take regular tablets or the liquid twice a day (morning and evening) at about the same time each day, and take extended-release tablets once a day.
Swallow all tablets whole. Don't crush, split, or chew them.
Regular tablets come in 250, 500, and 750 milligrams (mg).

My son has been prescribed this for SIBO alongside metronidazole. He's feeling on and off nauseous and a little bit dizzy, but mostly zoned out. The reviews had me in a major panic but he seems absolutely fine now. We are on day 5. On the plus side he is sleeping like a baby and says he can think more clearly.

Rated Ciperus (Cipro) for Urinary Tract Infection Report
DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE. I cannot stress this enough. It does more harm than good. Kicked my UTI out in under 24 hours, but left me with joint pain, irregular and rapid heartbeats, palpitations, and severe anxiety. No doctor I’ve seen knows how to treat any of this and assures me that the drug will eventually run its course. It has been a month since I stopped taking the medication, and I still cannot perform daily activities and am considering requesting a medical withdrawal from school because I can’t physically walk to and from class without overexerting myself. I’m now at risk of an aortic aneurism, osteoporosis, and a number of other dangerous conditions, and I’m only 20 years old. This stuff is POISON. If a doctor prescribes this to you, I urge you to ask for something else that is not a fluoroquinolone. The serious side effects of this family of drugs are far too common to take the risk. Please research this drug thoroughly and consider the repercussions before Cipro incapacitates you like it has done to so many others.
