Cetraxal Side Effects

In clinical studies, the most common side effects of Cetraxal included ear pain, fungal ear infections, and itching in the ear. Serious reactions, while not as common, can also occur when using these ear drops. Tell a healthcare provider right away if you experience a skin rash, wheezing, or worsening ear pain.

An Introduction to Cetraxal Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Cetraxal® (ciprofloxacin ear drops) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
