Generic Floxin (Ofloxacin 100 mg) guide:
What is Floxin?
Floxin is a brand name of the antibacterial drug sold in the U.S. The same drug is manufactured and sold all over the world under different trade names. Such drugs are commonly referred as generics as they are not the original drugs but the copies of the first developed drug that have been started to be manufactured after the exclusive patent of the developer expired.
The brand and generic drugs are based on the active substance called Ofloxacin which is an antibacterial agent from the group of second generation fluoroquinolones. The medications based on the substance are used to treat a variety of bacterial infections that can cause urinary tract diseases, upper and lower respiratory tract diseases, skin and structure infections, kidney infection, plague, and so on.
The other versions of the drug, that are commonly cheaper than the branded drug Floxin can be found if you look online or ask a pharmacist at your local drugstore for Generic Floxin or Generic Ofloxacin.
Is Generic Floxin less effective than the branded drug?
No. A generic drug, at least the one that our pharmacy sells, is absolutely equal in the effect, composition, and safety to the more expensive branded drug. In general, generics purpose was to make the most innovative and effective medicines available to anyone through the lower price. Therefore, ideally, they all should be identical to the branded drugs they are copying. However, it’s not always the case. But for our range of products, we always choose only the best medications from reliable manufacturers who value their reputation and do not save on the production process, ingredients, and quality control. The cheaper price is achieved, first of all, because they do not invest in the research and use already developed formulas and secondly because they do not widely advertise their medications. If you need an antibacterial drug based on Ofloxacin, you can buy Generic Floxin at our online drugstore with a confidence that you will get the drug you need.
When it’s time to buy Generic Ofloxacin?
The best time to purchase the medication is when your health care provider tells you to do so and gives you precise instructions on how to use the drug. However, if you have previously had the same condition and the drug was effective and now you suffer from an exacerbation of the condition, you can also buy Floxin and start using it in the same manner but only if not less than a half of year had past from the previous use of the drug. Antibiotics and antibacterial drugs can be ineffective if used more frequently especially if you use the drugs from the same group because bacteria develop resistance. We must also warn you that the antibacterial drug is effective only against certain bacteria so there is no guarantee that it will be suitable in your case unless prior to using it you undergo a susceptibility test, i.e. a test that shows whether the bacteria that caused your disease will be affected by the medication.
The medication can be prescribed to you in case of upper or lower respiratory tract bacterial infection, infection of the urinary tract, cervicitis (inflammation of the uterus), cystitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, pyelonephritis, prostatitis, shigellosis (bacteria-induced diarrhea), and in other conditions.
How the antibacterial drug renders its effect?
Floxin is effective against pathogens resistant to the majority of antibiotics and sulfonamides. It renders bactericidal (bacteria killing) effect destabilizing the bacterial DNA. The drug is quickly and almost completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and attains all organs and tissues as well as penetrates fluids such as saliva, bile, and secretion of the prostate. The maximum concentration in the blood plasma is achieved within 30-60 minutes after the oral intake. The drug is excreted in an unchanged form through urine.
How the drug should be used in different infections?
The medication can be used in adults only. The following dosages are taken from the instruction that accompanies the pills.
Infections of respiratory tract, skin and soft tissue infections such as wounds, furuncles (purulent inflammation of the hair follicle, spread to surrounding tissues), carbuncles (acute spillage of purulent-necrotic inflammation of several sebaceous glands and hair follicles located nearby), phlegmon (acute, purulent inflammation without clear edges), and others, infectious diseases of the abdominal cavity, and upper urinary tract infections are treated with 200 mg (one tablet) taken 2 times a day.

The tablets should be swallowed entirely without chewing with sufficient amount of water regardless of the meals.
As in the therapy with other antibiotics, the treatment course should be continued 2-3 or more days (based on the whole picture) after the symptoms elimination. The average treatment course duration is 7-10 days. In uncomplicated cases, the treatment course can be shorter. The medication cannot be taken for more than four weeks.
Adjustments of dosages in impaired liver or kidney function
