Generic Cipro now available for U.S. citizens
ROCHESTER, NYFEMA and the Red Cross have prepared guidelines for personal and family protection in the event of a biological attack. These plans call for having any needed prescription drugs on hand and ready for use.
The purchase of Cipro (generic name Ciprofloxacin) domestically requires a prescription, and few physicians will prescribe this for you to have on hand.
However, one of the worlds largest producers of Ciprofloxacin, Ranbaxy Ltd. in India, is waiving the prescription requirement for U.S. citizens in light of the current threat. The prescription waiver applies only to those antibiotics used in cases of biological attack.
Average U.S. retail for a single 500mg tablet is $7.50, with 120 tablets required for treatment to anthrax exposure. The Ranbaxy brand is offered at $2.95 per 500mg tablet. Prices are provided by www.Medicines.MD.
The generic Ciprofloxacin from Ranbaxy, Ltd. is factory sealed against tampering. Reports indicate average delivery times of 10 days via secure express courier service.
