Is Factive Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medicine for something other than bronchitis or pneumonia. This would be known as an "off-label" use. For example, Factive may be used off-label to treat other types of infections, as long as there is a good reason to believe that the bacteria causing the infection will be susceptible to Factive.
