Hello I'm Dr Chip

Cipro is a broad spectrum antibiotic so it's usually effective for any kind of bacterial infection

So it should be effective for what sounds like an ear infection like what you seem to have

Please let me know if you need any more information

can You give me a prescription for Amoxicilin
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Sorry, no

That would be both illegal and malpractice for any licensed physician to do that for someone they had never actually seen in their office

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
