Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic or recurring diseases. Continue reading to learn about our Ciprodex patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Ciprodex?
Ciprodex combines two drugs, ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone, as a treatment for acute otitis media (middle ear infections) in children over the age of six months with surgically placed tympanostomy tubes, more commonly known as ear tubes. It is also prescribed for acute otitis extrema (outer ear canal infections). It is intended only for the treatment of bacterial (not fungal or viral) infections.
The typical dosage of Ciprodex ear drops is four drops in the affected ear twice daily. Most infections will clear up within seven days.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Ear infections may not be the most serious disease, but anyone who has had one will tell you how painful they can be. And parents of children who have recurring ear infections will attest to the many nights of sleep disrupted by an infant or toddler screaming in pain. Ciprodex, while very effective, isn’t cheap, especially when it’s prescribed frequently for recurring infections. For someone who is uninsured or underinsured, or whose insurance doesn’t cover Ciprodex, can find the out-of-pocket cost beyond their reach.
Not everyone is aware of the existence of prescription assistance programs. Simplefill’s mission is to let people who need prescription assistance know that it’s available and to connect them with the program they’re likely to qualify for.
How Does Ciprodex Work?
Ciprodex combines the fluoroquinolone antibiotic Ciproflaxin and the corticosteroid Dexamethasone, which work in different ways. Ciprofloxacin blocks the chemicals that are essential to the ability of bacteria to reproduce and repair themselves. Dexamethasone reduces inflammation. Together, they decrease the swelling and kill the bacteria that caused the infection.
