How does Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) Works (Mechanism) ?

Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) belongs to a group of broad-spectrum antibiotics called the quinolones. Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) works by entering the bacterial cell and inhibiting a chemical called DNA-gyrase, which is involved in the production of genetic material (DNA). This therefore prevents the bacteria from reproducing and their growth is stopped.  

Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) is effective against several types of bacteria that tend to be resistant to other commonly used antibiotics. Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) is used to treat a wide range of infections, including infections of the chest, urinary tract and of the gastro-intestinal system. Ciprofloxacin (Generic Cipro) is also used as a single dose treatment for gonorrhoea.
