Started this medication two days ago for Pink eye with my sinus infection. It immediately began to burn, itch and turn the eyes more red than they were the day before. Used it a few more times and then gave it up. very ineffective and had to miss another morning of work because it didn't work on the pink eye at all.

I knew ahead of time that I was not allergic to the Cipro drug family. I am in Peru and didn't have the regular choices at the pharmacy I would if I were at home.

This medication caused my sinus to begin draining, itchy ears, and a severe rash to my face after only one dose. I would not recommend using it.
