General Information on Dosing With Levaquin

Some considerations for people taking Levaquin include the following:
 
  • Levaquin comes as tablets, an oral solution (liquid), and an injection form. It is usually taken once a day.
     
  • You can take the tablets with food or on an empty stomach. However, Levaquin oral solution must be taken at least one hour before or two hours after a meal.
     
  • Levaquin can be taken at any time of the day; however, be sure to take the medication at the same time each day (to make sure there is approximately 24 hours between doses).
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Levaquin will not work if you stop taking it too soon.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Levaquin dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
