Generic Ciloxan

Is Generic Ciprofloxacin Ophthalmic as Good as Ciloxan?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns each generic a rating.
An "AT" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic topical medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the currently available generic Ciloxan products have an "AT" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to brand-name Ciloxan.
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name drug. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.

Is Ciloxan the Same as Cetraxal (Ciprofloxacin Ear Drops)?

No -- although Ciloxan and Cetraxal contain the same active ingredient (ciprofloxacin), they are not the same product. These medications contain different dosages of ciprofloxacin, as well as different inactive ingredients. Ciloxan is formulated specifically for use in the eye, while Cetraxal is formulated for use in the ear.
