Solidarity with the author in opinion. The drug is available and effective. I take Ciprofloxacin in severe colds from biocipro.com, but it is necessary, together with some bifid-milk drink or cottage cheese, for the normalization of the gastrointestinal flora. It's still an antibiotic.
On the quality of this drug, I've heard quite a lot of controversy and remarks. I underwent a course of treatment with this drug and was pleased with the result. I took a heavy infectious bowel disease, Metronidazole 500 mg tablets in combination with intravenous drip administration of this drug.
