Flodemex Pharmacology

Ofloxacin is a quinolone/fluoroquinolone antibiotic. Ofloxacin is bactericidal and its mode of action depends on blocking of bacterial DNA replication by binding itself to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which allows the untwisting required to replicate one DNA double helix into two. Notably the drug has 100 times higher affinity for bacterial DNA gyrase than for mammalian. Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

Flodemex Absorption

Bioavailability of ofloxacin in the tablet formulation is approximately 98%

discontinue the drug at the first sign of a skin rash, hives or other skin reactions, a rapid heartbeat,
difficulty in swallowing or breathing, any swelling suggesting angioedema (e. g. , swelling of the lips,
tongue, face; tightness of the throat, hoarseness), or any other symptom of an allergic reaction

- to avoid excessive sunlight or artificial ultraviolet light while receiving ofloxacin and to discontinue
therapy if phototoxicity (e. g. , skin eruption) occurs;

- that if they are diabetic and are being treated with insulin or an oral hypoglycemic drug, to discontinue
ofloxacin immediately if a hypoglycemic reaction occurs and consult a physician
