    Is Ciprofloxacin Safe in Chronic Renal Failure

    2014-09-06 06:58| Font Size A A A

    Is Ciprofloxacin Safe in Chronic Renal FailureCiprofloxacin is an antibiotic which is widely used for fighting against bacteria and infections in the body. It has been used to treat different types of bacterial infections. And for chronic kidney failure patients, due to kidney damage, they are prone to suffer from various infections. But, does it mean that ciprofloxacin is safe for kidney disease patients?

    Before know the answer, let’s see the function of the ciprofloxacin.

    As the mentioned above, this drug is widely used to treat various infections and virus. It can be used to treat urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal tract infection, upper respiratory tract infection, skin infection, joint infection or even sepsis, etc. It can also be used to prevent infections for those that have low immunity and are more susceptible to various infections and viruses.

    When you are reading here, you may think that the symptoms of kidney disease are very similar to the therapeutic effects of ciprofloxacin. For chronic kidney failure patients, due to kidney damage and low immune system, they often have infections in urinary tract or even the kidneys. This kind of drug may be prescribed by your doctor to prevent and treat urinary tract infection and kidney infection.

    However since kidney disease patients have already developed renal impairments, is it safe to use ciprofloxacin without any concerns?

    Actually, it is needed to depend on your illness condition and the dosage of medicine. If your kidney failure is in the early stage, you can take this medicine under the doctor’s guidance. What’s more, it is important to adjust dosage of medicine according to the changes of illness condition.

    However, you must reduce the dose or even stop taking the ciprofloxacin when renal function decreases to 20ml/min or even more lower. Because it also has some bad side effects. It may cause swelling and other problems which can aggravate the kidney damage.

    In fact, ciprofloxacin and other western drugs are not the first or ideal option for treating infections.
