Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops

6 posts in this topic

I am wondering if ciprofloxacin eye drops 0.3% manufactured by falcon are gluten free. My daughter started them today for conjunctivitis, and now isn't feeling well. Any help would be appreciated.

I would call the doctor. And not give her any further of these eyedrops. She could be reacting to the Ciprofloxacin (which is an antibiotic) or to another of the inactive ingredients in the eye drops. Keep an eye on her for any signs of an allergic reaction. You should also discuss with the doctor your concerns regarding any wheat in the eyedrops. I do not know your daughters history or any allergies she may have so this is the best I can tell you. Since she is not feeling well and Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic I would be concerned that she may be allergic to it.

If she has conjunctivitis, she may have a virus that is causing other things besides the pink eye.

It doesn't make sense to me to put wheat in something that goes in your eye.

Thanks for your reply! I did check with Pharmasist this morning and it is OK..

It most likely is something else, I just thought I should rule out the eyedrops since they were new. My daughter is 14 and was diagnosed the first week of May. I was hoping by the time school started she would be feeling great, but it isn't the case. It gets to be hard to figure out what is causing what..

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
