Cipro HC Side Effects
In clinical studies, the most commonly reported side effect of Cipro HC was headache. Other reactions were also reported, including itching, hair loss, and a "pins and needles" sensation on the skin. However, these problems were reported so infrequently, that it is hard to say if they are actually related to the medication or not.
An Introduction to Cipro HC Side EffectsJust like any medicine, Cipro® HC (ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone) 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.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Cipro HC. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Common Side Effects of Cipro HCCipro HC has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using the drug were carefully documented. In clinical trials, the most commonly reported side effect was a headache, which occurred in up to 1.2 percent of people.
Uncommon Side EffectsSome Cipro HC side effects were reported rarely in clinical trials. Because they occurred so infrequently, it is difficult to tell if these problems were due to Cipro HC use or something else. These rare side effects, occurring in less than 1 percent of people, included:
- Migraine headache
- Reduced feeling or sensation in the skin
- Sensations of tingling, numbness, or "pins and needles" of the skin
- Hair loss.
