Pharmacology

Levofloxacin is a third-generation fluoroquinolone antibiotic that is synthetic and broad-spectrum. Chemically, Levofloxacin is a chiral fluorinated carboxyquinolone. Levofloxacin works as an antibiotic by blocking the enzymes necessary for DNA replication, transcription repair, and recombination, bacterial topoisomerase IV and DNA gyrase. It is active in vitro against a wide variety of gm-ve and gm+ve bacteria.

 

Dosage

The usual dose of Levofloxacin Tablets is 250 mg or 500 mg or 750 mg administered orally every 24 hours. Levofloxacin tablets can be administered without regard to food. Levofloxacin oral solution should be taken 1 hour before, or  2 hours after eating.

Levofloxacin injection should only be administered by intravenous infusion. It is not for intramuscular, intrathecal, intraperitoneal, or subcutaneous administration. The usual dose of Levofloxacin injection is 250 mg or 500 mg administered by slow infusion over 60 minutes every 24 hours or 750 mg administered by slow infusion over 90 minutes every 24 hours. Since the Levofloxacin injections are for single-use only, any unused portion should be discarded.

Warfarin has been linked to an increase in the risk of bleeding.
