Norflox 800 mg contains Norfloxacin, which is categorized under the class of drugs-quinolones. It treats infections of the stomach or intestines and urinary tract. Norflox is an effective medicine for patients who frequently have urinary tract infections and helps stop the recurrence. Urinary tract infections or UTIs develop due to bacteria in the urinary system. In women, the bacterial infection generally develops in the urinary bladder and is called cystitis. In men, infection occurs in the prostate gland and is referred to as prostatitis. In both cases, the infection may travel to the kidneys, infecting their function. Common symptoms of urinary tract infection include an urge to urinate frequently but in small amounts and feeling pain or burning sensation while urinating. UTIs should be treated on time to avoid the kidneys being infected. The doctor prescribes Norfloxacin tablets to kill the bacteria causing these infections.
Follow the directions given by your doctor carefully. Stick to the same dosing regimen that your doctor provides. The directions in this leaflet may differ from those that your doctor provides. The information given here is for general use. For best results, it is always best to use medicines under a doctor’s supervision. The usual dose is one tablet twice daily. The tablet should be taken with a glass full of water. Take the tablet on an empty stomach at least an hour before food or two hours after food. This will ensure that the medicine will have a better chance of fighting the infection because food can interfere with the absorption of this antibiotic drug. Avoid taking Norfloxacin while taking iron or zinc supplements, sucralfate, didanosine, and antacids. Taking a quinolone drug simultaneously or within two hours of taking it can interfere with its absorption. And it could affect the chance of Norflox fighting the infection.
The treatment length usually depends on your infection type and how well you respond to the treatment. Please continue to take medicine until you finish the prescription or until your doctor recommends it. In general, the length of treatment may vary from three to ten days. You may need the tablet for up to twelve weeks to stop frequent urinary tract infections.
Before starting a new treatment, tell your doctor that you are taking Norflox 800 mg tablet. If you develop diarrhoea while receiving Norfloxacin, tell your doctor immediately. Drink plenty of water during the treatment. This can help prevent the formation of crystals in the urine, which may lead to kidney problems. Do not take this antibiotic drug if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Tell your doctor if you notice side effects such as nausea, headache, and dizziness. These are the most common side effects of Norfloxacin 800mg, and they are usually mild.
