More info

What is the most important information I should know about Levofloxacin?

  • Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Levofloxacin will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
  • Take Levofloxacin with a full glass of water (8 ounces). Drink several extra glasses of fluid each day to prevent crystals from forming in the urine.
  • Take Levofloxacin on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals.
  • Levofloxacin can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
  • Do not give this medicine to a child younger than 18 years old. Levofloxacin may interfere with bone development in a child.
  • There are certain medicines you should not take within the 2 hours before or after you take Levofloxacin. This includes antacids that contain magnesium or aluminum (Tums or Rolaids), the ulcer medicine sucralfate (Carafate), didanosine (Videx), and vitamin or mineral supplements that contain iron or zinc. Taking these other medicines too close to your dose of Levofloxacin can make the antibiotic much less effective.
