Cipro XL, also known as Ciprofloxacin, is an antibiotic that is commonly used to treat various infections caused by certain bacteria.

The infections that Cipro XL is commonly used for include:

  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bladder infections
  • Prostate infections
  • Lung infections (e.g., bronchitis, pneumonia)
  • Sinus infections
  • Skin infections
  • Bone and joint infections
  • Abdominal infections
  • Infectious diarrhea
  • Typhoid fever
  • Certain gonorrhea infections
  • Certain anthrax infections
  • An infection called the plague

Some bacteria in certain locations may have developed resistance to Ciprofloxacin, which can make the medication less effective.


  • Take Cipro XL exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, including dosage and duration. It's typically taken once a day, but this can vary.
  • You can take Cipro XL with or without food. However, if you experience stomach upset, taking it with food might help.

  • Avoid taking Cipro XL with antacids (magnesium hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide) within 2 hours of your dose for the same reason as dairy products.
  • Limit excessive caffeine intake (coffee, tea, colas) while taking Cipro XL, as it can affect how your body absorbs the medication.


  • Don't take more or less medication than prescribed, or take it more often.
  • Try not to miss any doses. If you do miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is close to the time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not double the dose.
  • Don’t take dairy products. Avoid taking Cipro XL with dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese) or calcium-fortified juices within 2 hours of your dose, as they can interfere with absorption.
