What is Oflox (Ofloxacin) used for?
Oflox (Ofloxacin) is an oral antibiotic prescribed for the treatment of a wide variety of bacterial infections. It operates by inhibiting the production of bacteria cell walls to prevent or slow their reproduction. This makes it useful for treating infections of the urinary tract, lungs, airways, soft tissues, skin, or for the treatment of gonorrhoea. Your doctor may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Oflox (Ofloxacin)?
Strictly follow your doctor`s instructions while using Oflox (Ofloxacin) to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The normal dosage is one tablet taken once or twice each day, but your individual directions will depend on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. The tablets should be swallowed whole and unaltered along with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is suggested before use if you experience nausea. Do not alter the form of the tablets by crushing or splitting them to avoid destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Never stop using the medicine before being instructed to do so, even if your symptoms have disappeared, as the infection may not be destroyed and may return stronger or more resistant to treatment.
What are the side effects of Oflox (Ofloxacin)?
Oflox (Ofloxacin) may cause side effects in some patients such as:
Serious side effects possibly requiring medical attention are severe headaches, depression, depression, muscle fatigue, hallucinations, intense diarrhoea that is bloody or watery, seizures, increased cranial pressure, darkened urine, discoloured stools, or jaundice. Contact your doctor as soon as you experience any intense or worrying symptoms to make sure the necessary adjustments are made to your dosage or application frequency.
Oflox (Ofloxacin) should not be administered to patients who are adolescents, children who have not reached puberty, lactose intolerant, allergic to quinolone antibiotics, or who have had a bad reaction to similar treatments in the past. It is also recommended to inform your doctor if you have heart disease, a history of seizures, bradycardia, disturbed electrolyte levels, myasthenia gravis, severely reduced liver function, reduced kidney function, patients who have had a recent transplant, or who have recently used corticosteroid medications. These conditions may result in unexpected problems during treatment requiring alterations to your regimen.
Strictly use Oflox (Ofloxacin) as prescribed and follow all instructions provided by your doctor. Safe, suitable, and optimum dosage can vary and is dependent on the patient`s health and medical history, as well as the condition you are treating.
Oflox (Ofloxacin) may not be safe or suitable for all patients. Always ensure your doctor is informed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, using any other type of medication (including non-prescription medicine, vitamins, and supplements), as well as if you have any allergies, other illnesses, or pre-existing medication conditions.
Seek immediate medical attention or proceed to your nearest accident and emergency department if you suffer a hypersensitive or allergic reaction. Symptoms usually present during a reaction of this nature include difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the limbs or face, tight chest, hives, and skin rashes.
