Can Ciprofloxacin be reused for treating lung infection in an IPF patient?
Yes, ciprofloxacin is good broad spectrum antibiotic.
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
IPF is chronic progressive lung disease. It can cause lung infection and this in turn causes breathing difficulty and fever. So antibiotic is mainstay for your symptoms.
Since you have received ciprofloxacin from your doctor only, you can definitely take it for lung infection also.
It is good broad spectrum antibiotic.
Also continue other IPF drugs.
Please let me know other IPF drugs you are taking so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
