Ciprofloxacin Eye Drops
0

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..
