I take ofloxacin 200 mg for teeth n gum infection, is it ok?

I take ofloxacin 200 mg for teeth n gum infection, is it ok?

Not the best: It is always best to see a dentist and determine what is going on and get a perscription for the most appropriate antibiotic and not use something that you had leftover from another infection in a different part of your body. This is not the drug of choice to treat an oral infection. It will not cure your infection. You need dental treatment now. ...Read more

Can I take ofloxacin for a urinary tract infection, I have 200mg pills?

Can I take ofloxacin for a urinary tract infection, I have 200mg pills?

Probably: Ofloxacin is an antibiotic that would typically be effective in a urinary tract infection. The usual dose would be 200-400 mg twice daily for about 5 days. As with any potential infection, the best way to determine proper treatment is to get a culture and sensitivity test on the urine. If you self treat, it would be best to get a urine culture in about 2 weeks to prove you were cured. ...Read more

Which is more effective for skin infection ; ofloxacin or azithromycin??

Get with your dds and see what type of infected to you have and get it treated. Good luck. ...Read more

Kitten scratched my eyeball. Is it safe to use ofloxacin opthalmic solution usp. My eyeball feels weird. Would this prevent from eye infection?

Kitten scratched my eyeball. Is it safe to use ofloxacin opthalmic solution usp. My eyeball feels weird. Would this prevent from eye infection?

Corneal abrasion: If kitty scratched your eye and you have pain when you blink then she has possibly given you a corneal abrasion. The ofloxin is fine to use as a preventive, although may not be necessary. We generally recommend patching for a 24 hour period or so for the cornea to heal. If you are not completely better within 24 hours of patching, see a primary care doc for a careful eye exam. ...Read more

Maybe not bacteria: It may be that you do not have a bacterial infection, as 10 days of treatment with those drugs should have cleared it up.

Had eye infection over a month used tobradex, (tobramycin and dexamethasone) n ofloxacin for 7 days n stopped. Saw eye dr 3 or 4 times. Repeat same process still have watery eyes?

Many things: If your tear production is adequate, and you're having these symptoms, it sounds like a reaction to inflammation occurring on the surface of the eye. Most common things include allergies and /or pollutants. Allergy drops will work for your allergies. Pollutants are a little bit more difficult. Some allergy drops will help with the symptoms, and artificial tears can help wash away some of this. ...Read more
