Is it true that in prophylaxis of meningitis we give ciprofloxacin to adults and rifampin to infants? If so then what is the reason?

One can give sulfadiazine or , rifampicin or ciprofloxacin to adults. The same drugs can also be given to children. Ciprofloxacin is contraindicated in infants but we all prescribe it.
