The use of ofloxacin should be avoided in patients who have experienced serious adverse reactions in the past when using quinolone or fluoroquinolone containing products . Treatment of these patients with ofloxacin should only be initiated in the absence of alternative treatment options and after careful benefit/risk assessment .
Methicillin-resistant S. aureus is very likely to possess co-resistance to fluoroquinolones, including ofloxacin. Therefore, ofloxacin is not recommended for the treatment of known or suspected MRSA infections unless laboratory results have confirmed susceptibility of the organism to ofloxacin (and commonly recommended antibacterial agents for the treatment of MRSA-infections are considered inappropriate).
The most common pathogen involved in urinary tract infections varies across the European Union. Prescribers are advised to take into account the local prevalence of resistance in E. coli to fluoroquinolones.
Due to increase in resistance to N. gonorrhoeae, ofloxacin should not be used as empirical treatment option in suspected gonococcal infection unless the pathogen has been identified and confirmed as susceptible to ofloxacin. If clinical improvement is not achieved after 3 days of treatment, the therapy should be reconsidered.
Always consult your physician before using any medicine.
