No: If you need avelox, you need to be evaluated by a physician. Self treating with Avelox could be dangerous and i don't recommend it. Avelox is serious antibiotic used for serious infections. One the one hand, you may not need it. Secondly, you may get serious side effects, third, if you do have a serious infection, it may not respond. In all of those cases, you'll need tests & follow up. ...Read more

How long does avelox stay your system?

How long does avelox stay your system?

Usually in 2-3 days: Avelox has a half-life of about 12 hours (taken orally, 15hrs in IV form)--this means in 12 hours, 1/2 of what you took into your body is gone. In another 12hours, 1/4 left, at 36hours, 1/8 isl left etc..So for for the typical course of about 10 days therapy, most of the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is out of your system in about 2-3 days following your last dose--very cool biochemistry. Have fun learning. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a sinus inf this is the fifth day on avelox q d. Should I still feel bad?

I have a sinus inf this is the fifth day on avelox q d. Should I still feel bad?

Sinus Infection: Most patients get "better" by the 3rd - 5th day after starting avelox. But, if the sinuses are still clogged up, the pressure may persist. This assumes most of the symptoms are due to the presence of a bacterial infection. Add an oral decongestant, or best add afrin, (oxymetazoline) 2 puffs / 2 - 3 times per day, for up to three days. Afrin (oxymetazoline) is addicting, if used longer than a few days. Don't continue the use. ...Read more

I had a fever for a few days of 101 and chills and a terrible cough will avelox help?

Probably not: Moxifloxacin (Avelox®) is an antibiotic and most illnesses like this are due to viruses, such as influenza, and will not respond to this or any other antibiotic.

If you have failure of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) therapy, check with your doc for advice to do culture of urine if not already done. You may need a different class of antibiotics. ...Read more
