General background information page on travellers' diarrhoea.
Ciprofloxacin is effective in reducing the symptoms of travellers' diarrhoea, particularly if taken with Loperamide. The symptoms should improve within 24 hours of starting antibiotic.
In addition the anti-sickness tablet Avomine can be taken to reduce fluid loss and discomfort.
Choosing the right antibiotic
Ciprofloxacin is the preferred antibiotic to treat traveller's diarrhoea in all regions of the world except South Asia (India, Pakistan, etc) and SE Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, etc) where Azithromycin is the preferred antibiotic.
Ciprofloxacin and antacids and food
Do not eat or drink any dairy products (such as milk or yoghurt) or drinks with added calcium when you take the tablets.
If antacids, mineral supplements, supplements containing calcium, magnesium, aluminium or iron are essential, take tablets about two hours before or no sooner than four hours after them.
Take twice daily for 3 days; avoid taking with high calcium foods, such as dairy and some antacids. Take the first dose as soon as diarrhoea starts, NOT before. Ciprofloxacin is not a preventative.
Symptoms should start to improve within 24 hours of starting antibiotic. Medical advice should be sought if symptoms are not improving or are worsening, or if any of the following occur:
- Profuse diarrhoea and vomiting lead to dehydration
- Blood and green or yellow slime in the motions with severe abdominal pains
- Diarrhoea associated with rashes
- High fever and headache with diarrhoea (particularly in malaria areas)
- The anti-diarrhoeal Loperamide and anti-sickness tablets also reduce symptoms
- Try to get plenty of rest
- Drink plenty of fluids, even if vomiting (at least 3-4 litres/day)
- Continue to eat simple foods such as rice and dried bread, appetite permitting
- Pay attention to personal hygiene, to prevent spread
Side effects and cautions
There may be no side effects. Potential side effects include flatulence, flushing, headache, rash, dizziness, vivid dreams and muscle and joint pains. May impair skilled task such as driving, effects enhanced by alcohol.
Stop taking ciprofloxacin if there is a rash, confusion, agitation, hallucination or pains in tendons. Not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women and those with seizures and epilepsy.
To combat antibiotic resistance please:
- Only use antibiotics when needed
- Never share antibiotics
- Always complete course as instructed
