Levaquin Tablets

If you have certain bacterial infections or are preventing an infection after exposure to anthrax, your healthcare provider may prescribe Levaquin® (levofloxacin). This prescription medication comes in several strengths and forms. For example, the tablets are available in the following strengths:
 
  • 250 mg
  • 500 mg
  • 750 mg.
     
There are also other forms of Levaquin products, including a liquid and an injectable form.
 
Levaquin belongs to a group of medications known as fluoroquinolones, and works by interfering with two important bacterial enzymes (topoisomerase IV and DNA gyrase). These enzymes are necessary for bacteria to be able to copy and repair DNA (important steps required in order for bacteria to multiply).
 
Although most people tolerate the tablets well, Levaquin is not suitable for everyone. For example, you may not be able to take it if you have certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, epilepsy, or hypokalemia. Before using this medication, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other medications you are taking.
