Hyderabad-based Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited has reportedly launched a generic version of Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin 0.3% and dexamethasone 0.1%) Otic Suspension in the U. S market, after getting approval from the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Ciprodex is generally recommended for the treatment of infections developed by susceptible isolates of established microorganisms under the specific conditions of AOM (Acute Otitis Media) in pediatric and AOE( Acute Otitis Externa) in adult, pediatric, and elderly patients.
