CipronatĀ® 200 is given intravenously and administered by your doctor or nurse.

The usual dose for adults is 200-400 mg, twice daily.

For treating a pulmonary exacerbation in patients aged 5-17 with cystic fibrosis, where the benefit is considered to outweigh the risks, the dose is 10 mg/kg IV every 8 hours (the maximum daily dose is 1200 mg). The infusion should be administered over 60 minutes.

Cipronat IV is administered as an intravenous infusion. The posology depends on

  • the indication
  • the severity and location of the infection
  • the sensitivity of the pathogen(s) responsible
  • the renal function of the patient
  • and in children and adolescents the body weight.

The duration of treatment depends on the severity of the disease and the clinical and bacteriological evolution.

After initiating intravenous treatment, oral treatment (Cipronat tablets) may be considered depending on the clinical context and the physician’s opinion.

In case of severe impairment or if the patient is unable to swallow the tablets (e.g. tube-fed patients), it is recommended to start treatment with intravenous ciprofloxacin until oral retreatment is possible.

Adults: Daily dosage is usually 400 mg (2 vials) 2 to 3 times daily

Children: Daily dosage is usually 10mg/kg 3 times daily with a maximum of 400mg per dose
