Levofloxacin (Levaquin)

Levofloxacin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It belongs to the fluoroquinolone antibiotic class and is most commonly available as a tablet or oral solution. The brand name of levofloxacin is Levaquin. 

Levofloxacin is considered a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which means it is effective against a wider range of bacterial infections. 

How Does Levofloxacin Work?

Levofloxacin works by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial DNA. DNA is the genetic code of bacteria and is crucial for the cell’s expression and replication. Levofloxacin promotes the breakage of DNA by converting two bacterial enzymes, DNA gyrase, and topoisomerase IV, into toxic enzymes that inhibit DNA repair and manufacturing. This then kills the bacteria. 

What Is Levofloxacin Used For?

Levofloxacin is generally prescribed only in cases where the bacterial infection cannot be treated with safer antibiotics because of its increased risk of severe side effects.

Levofloxacin is used to treat:

  • Pneumonia
  • Rhinosinusitis
  • Acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis
  • Bacterial prostatitis
  • Pyelonephritis
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Skin infections
  • Prophylaxis

Levofloxacin may also be used for treatment in those who have been exposed to anthrax or specific variants of the plague. 

Levofloxacin side effects

Common side effects associated with levofloxacin may include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Heartburn
  • Vaginal itching or discharge

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Fever
  • Unusual bruising or bleeding
  • Seizures
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Low blood sugar

Some people may be allergic to levofloxacin and exhibit symptoms such as difficulty breathing, hives, or swelling in the throat or face. Others may have a severe skin reaction of red or purple skin rash, peeling and blistering skin, burning in the eyes, skin pain, and a sore throat. If you have an allergic or severe skin reaction, seek emergency medical help. 

The above lists of possible side effects associated with levofloxacin are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking levofloxacin, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.

How to Take Levofloxacin?

When prescribed levofloxacin, it is essential to follow all dosing instructions provided by your doctor, including the dosage amount and timing. 

Levofloxacin must be taken with water and at the same time each day. To further support your kidneys as you take levofloxacin, be sure to drink extra fluids during the day. 

Levofloxacin tablets can be taken with or without food. If you experience an upset stomach after taking levofloxacin, taking it with food may help ease these symptoms. However, the levofloxacin oral solution must be taken on an empty stomach, at least one hour before or two hours after a meal. Those taking the oral solution must be sure to measure the medicine carefully. 

Continue taking levofloxacin for the complete amount of prescribed time, even if your symptoms improve quickly. Discontinuing the medication early may result in the infection lingering in your body, which could result in a recurrent or even more severe infection. 

If you miss a dose, take levofloxacin as soon as you realize it. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses at one time to make up for the missed dose. 

What Should You Avoid While Taking Levofloxacin?

Until you know how levofloxacin will affect you, avoid driving or other hazardous activities. Levofloxacin may impair your reactions, which can be dangerous when operating heavy equipment. 

Levofloxacin can also increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and may cause you to sunburn more easily. While taking levofloxacin, avoid tanning beds or sunlight, and if you do go outside, wear sunscreen and protective clothing. 

There are also some medications to be cautious of while taking levofloxacin because they make levofloxacin less effective. This includes antacids containing aluminum or magnesium, didanosine chewable tablets or powder, and mineral/vitamin supplements containing magnesium, aluminum, zinc, or iron. 

Additionally, tell your doctor about any other medications you take, especially:

  • Diuretics
  • Theophylline
  • Medicine to treat depression or mental illness
  • Heart rhythm medication
  • Insulin or oral diabetes medication
  • Steroid medicine
  • Blood thinners
  • NSAIDs

This is not a complete list of all medications to be aware of, and other drugs may interact with levofloxacin. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you are on so they can ensure no ill effects occur.
