Levaquin® (levofloxacin) is prescribed for preventing infection after exposure to inhaled anthrax in adults and children. It is also approved to prevent and treat plague in adults and children.
It is also used for treating various types of infections in adults, including:
- Sinus infections
- Skin infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Kidney infections
- Prostate infections.
This medication is approved for treating the infections listed only when they are caused by certain types of bacteria. Not all bacteria will respond to Levaquin. Also, bacteria have different resistance patterns in different regions of the country. This means that some bacteria may be susceptible to Levaquin in certain parts of the country but not in others.
