Product Information

  • Description

    Levofloxacin is a synthetic antibiotic that acts as a killer bacterium or bacterial growth preventer. It is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. It is well absorbed and rapidly penetrates most body tissues and fluids after absorption, including the lungs, urinary tract, and genital organs. This is because it is a quinolone antibiotic that interferes with the action of an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which is essential for bacterial DNA reproduction and repair. It is effective against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pneumoniae infections. It is important to use levofloxacin with caution if you have a history of quinolone allergy or certain medical conditions. Tendon rupture is associated with levofloxacin use, which may be worse if you take corticosteroids or other fluoroquinolones. Consulting a medical professional is advisable for a comprehensive understanding of levofloxacin's drug use. It is important to note that levofloxacin should not be used with oral anticoagulants or antiplatelet agents because the risk of hemorrhage may be increased.
