Abstract: The effect of intravenous (3.5 mg/kg) and oral (5 mg/kg) famotidine on ciprofloxacin pharmacokinetics after single (i.v.) intravenous (5 mg/kg) and oral (20 mg/kg) doses were examined in the rat. Famotidine co-administration significantly increased the terminal elimination half-life of ciprofloxacin (54% and 29% following i.v. and oral administration, respectively) and tended to reduce the total body clearance by 27% and 34% following i.v. and oral routes, respectively. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve and the mean residence time in the body after i.v. and oral doses were significantly increased following famotidine co-administration. No changes in the steady-state apparent volume of distribution was observed after i.v. administration. The maximum plasma concentration and the time to peak concentration after oral dosing were also unaffected. These results suggest a possible reduction in the total clearance of ciprofloxacin, owing to inhibition of its renal tubular excretion by famotidine. Further studies are warranted to determine whether this interaction occurs in humans.
