Customer Question

Can you mix marolone and cipro? I have travellers dioreaha and also need to take marolone as there is malaria here. I have had symptoms for 24 hours. In that time I have vomited 3 times and passed 3 runny stools. We are in Iquitos, Peru.

there is no drug interaction between cipro and Malarone

you should get your stools checked for parasites and c diff to see if you have an infection in your colon .

cipro would not work for clostridium difficile infection

do you have a doctor you can see who can check your stool for infection?
