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.

Usually not needed. These drugs are similar and not used together very often. Your treatment should be based on culture results. I would advise a urologist or infectious disease specialist visit. Read more...
