Lomefloxacin

Lomefloxacin

General Information

Lomefloxacin is a broad spectrum antibiotic. It is effective in the treatment of complicated and uncomplicated urinary tract infections, acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, bacterial eye infections and to prevent urinary tract infections post-operatively caused by organisms that are sensitive to Lomefloxacin.

It is important to note that this medication is only effective against bacterial infections - if your infection is the result of a viral or fungal infection it will be ineffective.

Antibiotic resistance (that is, when bacteria develop the ability to defend themselves against the effect of an antibiotic) occurs frequently with many antibiotics. This most often occurs when patients do not complete the prescribed course in full or when antibiotics are used for non-bacterial infections such as cold and flu.
