Levofloxacin

Levofloxacin is a prescription antibiotic for treating various bacterial infections like:

  • Sinus infection like an acute bacterial sinusitis
  • Community-acquired pneumonia and acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis
  • Complicated skin and soft tissue infection
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Chronic bacterial prostatitis
  • Some types of gastroenteritis
  • Uncomplicated cystitis

It is also used along with other antibiotics to treat:

  • Meningitis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Acute kidney infections
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

Levofloxacin is a quinolone antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of the bacteria. It interferes with the enzyme involved in repairing and reproduction of bacteria. Without the enzyme, bacteria will not be able to repair themselves and reproduce. This kills the bacteria and stops the infections from spreading.

Why Buy Levofloxacin?

Levofloxacin was approved for medical use in the United States since 1996. It’s one of the safest and most effective antibacterial medications needed in the health system. As of 2007, the Infectious Disease Society of America recommended this drug as the first-line of treatment for community-acquired pneumonia when in-patient treatment is required. It’s used along with metronidazole as a first-line treatment for catheter-associated urinary tract infections in adults. Levofloxacin is Available here.

Though it’s relatively higher in price compared with other antibiotics, it effectively treats bacterial infections and it does not interact with some foods and drugs. Levofloxacin is available as a generic medicine that you can buy at a cheaper price compared with the brand versions.

How to Take Levofloxacin?

Levofloxacin comes in a tablet form of different strength. Your dose depends on the type of infection you have. The typical recommended dose for most infection is 500 mg once or twice a day for 7 to 14 days. Take it exactly as directed by your physician. Do not chew or crush the tablet. You can take them on a full or an empty stomach. However, do not take them if you are taking supplements containing zinc or iron. You may take your supplements two hours before or after taking Levofloxacin.
