The low potassium: is probably from the diarrhea and the dosage of ornidazole/orlfloxin probably not harmful but a call to the POISON CONTROL CENTER for exact information is my strong suggestion!

I had a sprain in my heel in the yesterday so today my father gave me o2 ofloxacin ornidazole tablets instead of a painkiller.Will I have any problems?

Not a treatment: Ofloxacin ornidazole is usually treatment for infection, not heel sprain. Unless your heel sprain is related to infection (unlikely) this actually doesn't treat it for anything. Pain killers are not recommended either, antiinflammatory medication, icing, rest, elevation, bracing and cool compression wraps usually help sprains. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Yes, ...: A 2-week course of antibiotics will cure most of infection-related epididymitis if sensitive. But resolution ache and induration will take time, but in a highly variable duration and occasionally, complete disappearance of both may linger or be impossible.
