Uses
Levoquin (Levofloxacin) is used to treat community-acquired pneumonia, urinary tract infections, pyleonephritis (bacterial kidney infection), cystitis, prostatits, skin infections and many other types of bacterial infections. However, it will not work on viral infections. This drug belongs to a class of medicines known as quinolone antibiotics, and it treats infections by destroying bacteria. By preventing the action of an enzyme called DNA-gyrase (which is needed by the bacteria to repair genetic material), this drug effectively treats a wide range of infections caused by bacteria.

Dosage and Administration
Patients must visit their doctor before taking Levoquin (Levofloxacin), so that a thorough medical examination can be conducted. The prescribing doctor will then determine the most effective dosage, based on the condition being treated. Adult patients undergoing treatment for community acquired pneumonia are usually told to take 500mg every 24 hours, and treatment can last for 7 to 14 days. Prostatitis is often treated with a dose of 500mg per day, with treatment lasting for as long as 28 days. Other conditions are treated with different dosage regimens, and patients must strictly follow the instructions provided by their doctor.
