Were you looking for information on Floxin? Floxan is a common misspelling of Floxin.
People with certain bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections, pelvic infections, and gonorrhea, may be given the drug Floxin® (ofloxacin). This antibiotic comes in tablet form. It works by interfering with two enzymes that are crucial to the process bacteria use to multiply.
The amount of time you will take Floxin will depend on several factors, including the condition being treated. Some people need a single, one-time dose, while others require treatment for as long as six weeks, taking the drug twice a day.
