Is There a Generic Ciprodex Otic?
Ciprodex® (ciprofloxacin/dexamethasone) is a prescription ear drop used to treat certain bacterial ear infections in children and adults. If you are prescribed this otic suspension, you may wonder if there is a generic Ciprodex product available.
Ciprodex is currently under the protection of a patent that prevents any generic version of this medication from being manufactured in the United States. Alcon Laboratories, Inc., holds the exclusive rights to market Ciprodex in the United States until August 2020. This is the earliest predictable date that a generic version could become available.
