Were you looking for information about Avelox? Avelux is a common misspelling of Avelox.
If you have a bacterial infection, your healthcare provider may prescribe the antibiotic Avelox® (moxifloxacin). The medication works by interfering with two important bacterial enzymes that are necessary for bacteria to be able to copy and repair DNA (important steps required in order for bacteria to multiply). Avelox is usually taken once daily, but the length of treatment that your healthcare provider recommends will be based on the severity and type of your infection.
