Generic Cipro Antibiotic

1 post in this topic

Hi everyone,

As a celiac person with multiple allergies, I have found that the only antibiotic I can take is CIPRO. However, a generic form of this drug apparently hit the market last month. There is some doubt as to whether it is gluten-free. Has anyone had experience with this issue yet?

I came down with a horrible infection over the weekend and had to get antibioitics on Monday. The pharmacist tried to give me generic Cipro, but switched to name-brand because of concerns over the gluten content.

Thoughts or info, anyone? ? Thanks so much!


PS Luckily, since going on the gluten-free diet a year ago, I rarely get infections that require antibiotics, but want to be prepared in case of the need in the future!
