Cifloxin or Ciprofloxacin is a kind of antibiotic known as a “quinolone antibiotic”. It is in no way related to penicillin. It is important to note that Ciprofloxacin should only be used to treat the symptoms of travellers’ diarrhoea – it should not be used as a preventative measure. Can be used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections, one of which is travellers’ diarrhoea. As an antibiotic, Ciprofloxacin will attack the dangerous bacteria infecting your body, preventing them from spreading and ultimately killing them off.
When Cifloxin attacks the bacteria, it prevents them from producing an enzyme that they require to live and reproduce. This leaves the bacteria wide open to attack from your body’s natural defences. Can effectively reduce the duration of your traveller’s diarrhoea, as well as the symptoms associated with it. This effectiveness can be enhanced by the anti-diarrhoea drug loperamide. For best results you should take twice a day for three days.
