Brief Answer: NO, it does not help with ulcers(gastric)! Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. Please, what ulcers are you talking of? Are these ulcers in the stomach or ulcers somewhere else on the body? Ciprofloxacine is an antibiotic that is mainly used to treat bacteria infections. It will not help to treat gastric ulcers. If you are not talking of gastric ulcers, please precise the type of ulcer you are talking about and I will respond to that. I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you so much for patronizing our services and please do feel free to ask for follow up clarifications and information if need be. I wish him the best of health. Dr. Ditah, MD.
