In brief: No, it cannot...

The drug of choice for trichomonas infection is metronidazole or tinidazole by mouth.
Moxifloxacin is anti-bacterial agent not anti-protozoan. So, don't use it for trich, More? Ask Doc timely.

In brief: No

Fluorinated quinolones like Moxifloxacin do not generally have activity against protozoans like trichomonas.
Metronidazole is usually the therapy of choice.
