Can Ciplox and Fense be taken while suffering with ventricular fibrillose?
Dear Doctor I am a 70 year old male .I was diagnosed with left ventricular fibrillosis.I am on a maintainence dose of TAB CORDARONE 200mg daily.I have been advised tooth extraction ,tooth replacement and scaling by my dentist.I have been prescribed TAB CIPLOX 500mg TAB FENSE-P prior to the dental procedure.Kindly advise if I can take these medicines.Regards YYYY@YYYY
I suggest you talk to your doctor again and to see the possibility of using another antibiotic, from another class, and not fluoroquinolones that have many side effects and especially in you, with ventricular fibrillation in treatment with Cordarone.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
