Oral and IV Cipro can be used in CHILDREN
Oral and IV Cipro can be used in CHILDREN if needed.
Systemic quinolones are usually avoided in children...due to concerns about possible bone and joint disease in kids. But quinolones are useful for treating resistant infections in children...and are usually well-tolerated.
Cipro can be a good choice when other antibiotics can't be used. You might see Cipro used when treating complicated urinary tract and kidney infections in children as young as 1 year old.
