Ciprofloxacin, also called Cipro, is an antibiotic drug. Using Cipro may be ineffective for gonorrhea, and might actually increase the spread of drug-resistant gonorrhea. It is also used to fight some opportunistic infections in people with HIV. NOTE: In 2004, the Centers for Disease Control noted an increase in strains of gonorrhea that are resistant to Cipro among men who have sex with men. For this reason, the CDC recommends the use of other antibiotics by men who have sex with men for treatment of gonorrhea. Cipro is used for a wide range of bacterial infections. Cipro works against some bacteria that are resistant to other antibiotics, including penicillin. Many germs live in our bodies or are common in our surroundings. A healthy immune system can fight them off or keep them under control. However, HIV infection can weaken the immune system. Infections that take advantage of weakened immune defenses are called “opportunistic infections.” People with advanced HIV disease can get opportunistic infections.
