Cetraxal Drug Interactions
Cetraxal is not likely to react with other medications, as very little of the drug is expected to reach the bloodstream. Although it doesn't appear to interact with other drugs, Cetraxal hasn't been studied with every possible medicine, and interactions cannot be ruled out. Tell your healthcare provider about all medications you take before starting treatment with Cetraxal.
Does Cetraxal Interact With Other Drugs?Cetraxal® (ciprofloxacin ear drops) is a prescription ear drop approved for the treatment of acute otitis externa, or bacterial infections of the outer ear and ear canal. This medication does not have any known drug interactions.
Cetraxal is used in the ear, and very little of the medication is expected to be absorbed into the body. Because only small amounts of the drug (if any) would be found in the blood after use, it will likely not interact with other medications.
Although Cetraxal does not appear to interact with other drugs, it is probably a good idea to limit your use of other ear drops when using Cetraxal, unless your healthcare provider tells you it is okay.
If you do use other ear drops, you may not be able to use them at the same time as Cetraxal. Ask your healthcare provider about the best way to use other ear drops with Cetraxal.
Final ThoughtsAt this time, it seems unlikely that Cetraxal would cause drug interactions. None have been identified to date, and very little Cetraxal is expected to be absorbed into the body. However, this does not necessarily mean that there really are no drug interactions. Cetraxal has not been studied with every possible drug, and interactions may be discovered at a later date.
It is a good idea to make sure all your healthcare providers have a complete list of all your medications. Therefore, you should always tell your healthcare provider about all of the medications you take, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements, even if you believe they will not react with other medicines.
