Avelox is a medication used for treating infections caused by many different types of bacteria. It comes in tablet and injectable form, and is generally taken once a day. It is a quinolone antibiotic that stops bacteria from multiplying by interfering with certain enzymes. Before your healthcare provider prescribes Avelox, make sure he or she knows if you have hypokalemia, epilepsy, or any allergies.
