Ofloxacin

Ofloxacin is a prescription antibiotic.  It belongs to the quinolone group of antibiotics. It is prescribed to treat various infections caused by bacteria. These include:

  • Pneumonia and bronchitis
  • Skin infections like impetigo
  • Sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia and gonorrhea
  • Urinary tract infections like urethritis
  • Cervicitis
  • Prostate infections like prostatitis

Ofloxacin is sometimes used to treat:

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Septicemia or blood poisoning
  • Legionnaires’ disease (a type of lung infection)
  • Infections of the bones and joints
  • Infections of the stomach and intestines
  • Prevention of Travelers’ diarrhea

It works by inhibiting the bacteria from multiplying and spreading infections. It interferes with the bacterial enzyme involved in repairing its DNA. This prevents the bacteria from repairing itself. Eventually, the bacteria will die and the infection clears up.

Why Buy Ofloxacin?

Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is FDA approved since 1990. It is active against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It is available as a generic name and as brand names like Floxin and Oculox. The generic form cost less than brand names but their mechanism of action and drug interaction are the same.  Oflocacin is available here.

How to Take Ofloxacin?

Ofloxacin comes as a tablet form that you have to take by mouth. Your doctor will determine your dose. Your dose is based on the following:

  • your condition
  • the severity of your condition
  • your age
  • your weight

The typical dose is 200 mg or 400 mg. Take it once a day in the morning or two times a day for 7, 14 or 28 days. Take it as directed to you by your physician. You can take this medication on a full or empty stomach.

For a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed one. Finish the entire dose of your treatment even if you feel well. Stopping it will not kill the bacteria. The bacteria can even become resistant to the antibiotic.

Things to Remember

  • Ofloxacin is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
  • Do not take medications that contain iron or zinc two hours before and after taking this medication.
  • This is also not suitable for patients who suffer from epilepsy.
  • Do not take this if you are allergic to its active ingredient.
  • This medicine may cause unwanted side effects like diarrhea, headache, stomach ache and vomiting. Other unwanted side effects are eye irritation, difficulty sleeping and thrush. In case of allergic reactions, stop using this medication and contact your doctor right away.
