Brief Answer:
Major interactions

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but ciprofloxacin and warfarin has a major interaction . Using ciprofloxacin together with warfarin , increases the warfarin effect and may cause you to bleed more easily. You may need a dose adjustment based on your prothrombin time or International Normalized Ratio (INR) blood tests. using them together may cause unusual bleeding or bruising, vomiting, blood in your urine or stools, headache, dizziness, or weakness. i hope I answered your question. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion .
