Ingredients

  • NORFLOXACIN 400mg

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Norfloxacin exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Take Norfloxacin at regular intervals as instructed. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take it even when you feel better. You must complete the entire course of antibiotic. If you don't, the infection will not clear completely.

Take Norfloxacin on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after food. Always take it with a full glass of water, unless your doctor has specifically told you not to do so.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have heart or kidney disease, diabetes, epilepsy, myasthenia gravis, an inherited condition known as G6PD deficiency, or if you ever had an injury to a tendon or muscle.

Alert your doctor if you have bowel disease, especially colitis (inflammation of the colon).

If you are being treated with Norfloxacin for sexually transmitted disease, you should follow your doctor's advice on ways to prevent passing the disease to others. You should also avoid sexual contact until the doctor certifies that you are cleared of the infection.

Drink plenty of water while being treated with Norfloxacin, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to restrict your fluid intake.

When should I not use this medicine?

Do not take Norfloxacin if you have a history of allergic reactions (rashes, breathlessness, swollen eyes) to similar antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, lomefloxacin, moxifloxacin, nalidixic acid or ofloxacin.

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not take Norfloxacin if you are pregnant.

Do not give Norfloxacin to children or teenagers unless instructed by the doctor.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Do not take Norfloxacin with dairy products such as milk, cheese, yoghurt or ice-cream. Dairy products reduce the effectiveness of Norfloxacin when taken at the same time. Take Norfloxacin at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after you have taken any dairy products.

Avoid caffeine-containing beverages such as coffee, tea and certain soft drinks.

Avoid alcohol.

Why do I need this medicine?

Norfloxacin is an antibiotic. It is used to treat certain bacterial infections of the genitals, bladder and the digestive system.

Norfloxacin is also used to treat certain sexually transmitted diseases (STD).

Norfloxacin belongs to a group of antibiotics called the quinolones.

What side effects could I experience?

Norfloxacin may cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

Other common side effects include diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, stomach discomfort, an unusual taste in the mouth and headache. If you have diarrhoea, drink lots of water to replace the fluids lost. However, if you have severe diarrhoea or diarrhoea with severe stomach cramps or bloody stools, alert your doctor.

If you develop rashes, breathlessness, swollen mouth or eyes, stop the medicine and inform your doctor quickly. These could be signs of an allergic reaction.

Norfloxacin may cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid direct or prolonged exposure to the sun or ultraviolet (UV) light, including tanning beds and sun lamps.

Alert your doctor if you experience any pain in your joints or muscles.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Do not take Norfloxacin at the same time as antacids or supplements that contain aluminium, calcium, iron, magnesium or zinc. These reduce the effectiveness of Norfloxacin. If you must take antacids or multivitamins containing aluminium, calcium, iron, magnesium or zinc, take Norfloxacin at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after such products.

Alert your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, especially those listed here:

- warfarin (a blood-thinning medicine)

- theophylline (an asthma medicine)
- amiodarone, sotalol (heart medicines)
