Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
is an antibiotic medication which is used for treating infections, like gastro-intestinal infections, bacterial diarrhoea, urinary tract
infections, etc. Sometimes gastrointestinal infections or diarrhoea can be a cause of mild, transient bowel incontinence, in which case, this medicine may work by clearing the infection, stopping the diarrhoea and thereby relieving the incontinence. So, unless this is the case, Ciprofloxacin has no direct role in treating bowel incontinence.
Regarding your incontinence, you would first need a proper evaluation to ascertain the cause. Common causes of fecal incontinence
include diarrhea, constipation
, and muscle or nerve damage
. Further treatment should be based on the probable cause. General measures which can help include increasing the fibre-content of your food, avoiding constipation and periodic voluntary emptying of bowels.
