Levoflox 250 mg
Levoflox 500 mg
Levoflox containing the active ingredient Levofloxacin belongs to a type of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. Levoflox is a type of fluoroquinolone antibiotic medication which is effective against the bacteria responsible for causing a wide range of infections, including prostatitis, skin infections, sinusitis, urinary tract infections, chronic bronchitis flare-ups and various other conditions. Levoflox destroys the bacteria that cause the infection, by blocking the enzyme the bacteria need in order to multiply. This leads to an improvement in the infection. However, Levoflox will only treat infections caused by bacteria.
Adults treating nosocomial pneumonia are sometimes directed by their doctor to take 750 mg at 24 hour intervals, with treatment lasting for 7 to 14 days. The exact amount of time for which treatment will need to be continued must be decided by the prescribing doctor. Prostatitis, sinusitis, urinary tract infections and any other condition this drug is used for will require a different dosage, and patients must always follow the instructions given by their doctor.
Levoflox may cause unwanted side effects such as: loose stools, nausea, headache, dizziness, sleep problems.
Inform your doctor if any side effects occur. Serious side effects are less common, however, there is still a possibility of this occurring. Urgent medical assistance will be needed if you experience hallucinations, blisters, sore muscles or joints, uncontrolled shaking, severe headaches or any other signs of a serious reaction.
When undergoing treatment with Levoflox, it is essential that the entire course of medicine as prescribed is completed, unless you are told otherwise by your doctor. Patients with myasthenia gravis should not take Levoflox, as it could cause their condition to worsen. Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
