AVELOX 400mg | MOXIFLOXACIN 400mg – 5 TABS
Moxifloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibacterial given by mouth or by intravenous infusion over 60 minutes as the hydrochloride in the treatment of susceptible infections. The usual dose of AVELOX is 400 mg once daily. Moxifloxacin is reported to have greater activity against Gram-positive bacteria, including pneumococci, than ciprofloxacin.
Moxifloxacin is generally well tolerated, but it should not be given to patients receiving class Ia antiarrhythmic drugs (such as procainamide and quinidine) or class III antiarrhythmics (such as sotalol and amiodarone) as it has been shown to prolong the QT interval,
