The adolescent with cystic fibrosis has been placed on ciprofloxacin (Cipro) for a lung infection. Which statement from the client indicates the need for more teaching?
1. “Cipro should not be taken with dairy products.”
2. “I will need to have drug levels drawn while I am on this medication.”
3. “I should immediately report any muscle or joint pain.”
4. “If I miss a dose, I should take it as soon as I remember.”
Therapeutic serum drug monitoring is not routinely done with ciprofloxacin. This medicine should not be taken with dairy products orcalcium-fortified juice. While this side effect is more common in older adults, ciprofloxacin may cause tendon damage including a ruptured Achilles tendon. Clients may take a missed dose as soon as they remember. If it is very close to the time of the next dose, the missed dose should be omitted. The client should not take a double dose.
