Indication

Ofloxacin is an antibiotic that belongs to the class of medications called quinolones. It is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria. It is most commonly used to treat infections of the lung, urinary tract, and skin. It can also be used to treat certain prostate infections and sexually transmitted infections. Ofloxacin works by killing some types of bacteria that can cause these infections.

Ofloxacin may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Ofloxacin may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Ofloxacin may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Ofloxacin for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Ofloxacin, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Ofloxacin without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Ofloxacin to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Ofloxacin if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Dosage

The usual recommended adult dose is 200 mg to 400 mg twice daily, depending on the type of infection being treated.

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

HEALTH CANADA ADVISORY

January 23, 2017

Health Canada has issued new restrictions concerning the use of ofloxacin. To read the full Health Canada Advisory, visit Health Canada's web site at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Allergy: Serious allergic reactions have been reported by people who take Ofloxacin. These reactions often occur following the first dose. Signs of an allergic reaction include a severe rash, Hives, swollen face or throat, or difficulty breathing. If these occur, seek immediate medical attention.

Diabetes: Problems with blood glucose control, including the onset of high or low blood glucose, have been reported with ofloxacin. This usually occurs for people with diabetes who use insulin or take an antidiabetes medication by mouth (e.g., Glyburide). If you have diabetes and are taking ofloxacin, carefully monitor your blood glucose.

Diarrhea: People taking Ofloxacin may develop diarrhea caused by an infection with the bacteria C. difficile. If you have loose, watery, and bloody bowel movements, with or without fever or stomach cramps, after taking ofloxacin, get medical attention as soon as possible. Diarrhea caused by C. difficile infection can lead to serious health problems if it is not properly treated.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Ofloxacin may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Do not drive or engage in other activities requiring alertness if the medication affects you in this way.

Fluids: Drink plenty of fluids while taking Ofloxacin. This will help to avoid the possible development of crystals in your urine.

Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Ofloxacin to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Ofloxacin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ofloxacin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: If you have reduced liver function, discuss with your doctor how Ofloxacin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ofloxacin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Neuromuscular disorders: People with Myasthenia Gravis (an autoimmune disorder that causes muscle weakness) should discuss with their doctor how Ofloxacin may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ofloxacin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Seizures: If you have a history of seizures or have a medical condition known to make seizures more likely, discuss with your doctor how Ofloxacin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ofloxacin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Sun sensitivity: People who take ofloxacin are more likely to suffer from Sunburn. While taking ofloxacin, avoid spending time in the sun and when you do, use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 15. Stop taking the medication if sun sensitivity occurs.

Tendinitis: Ofloxacin may increase the chance of tendon injury. This occurs more commonly for people who are also taking corticosteroid medications, however it can happen to anyone who takes ofloxacin. If you notice any new pain in the tendons, stop taking ofloxacin, avoid physical exercise, and contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Pregnancy: Ofloxacin should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Ofloxacin, stop taking it and contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Ofloxacin passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking ofloxacin, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children and adolescents: The safety and effectiveness of using Ofloxacin have not been established for children. Ofloxacin is not recommended for children and adolescents under 18 years of age.
