More Info on Floxin's Indications

Can Children Use It?

Floxin is not approved for use in people younger than 18 years of age, as it has not been adequately studied in this age group. Fluoroquinolones may cause bone, joint, or tendon problems in children (see Floxin and Joint Problems).

Can Older Adults Use It?

Yes, older adults can use Floxin. However, they may have an increased risk for certain Floxin side effects, including QT prolongation (a problem with the heart rhythm) and tendon problems (see Floxin and Tendon Problems). Also, because kidney function declines with age and the kidneys remove this medication from the body, older adults may need a lower Floxin dosage.

Using Floxin for Off-Label Reasons

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than the infections listed in this article. This would be called an "off-label" use. Floxin is often used off-label to treat other types of infections caused by susceptible bacteria.
