Avelox (Moxifloxacin HCl) , an antibiotic, is prescribed to treat sinus and lung infections. It kills bacteria that can cause sinusitis, pneumonia, and secondary infections in chronic bronchitis. It also fights skin infections caused by staph or strep. Avelox is a member of the quinolone family of antibiotics. Like all antibiotics, Avelox works only against bacteria. It will not cure an infection caused by a virus. In rare cases, antibiotics can cause a serious allergic reaction. Stop taking Avelox and call your doctor immediately if you develop any of the following warning signs: skin rash, tingling, hives, shortness of breath, swelling of the face or throat, or difficulty swallowing Avelox may be taken with or without food. Your doctor will only prescribe Avelox to treat a bacterial infection; it will not cure a viral infection, such as the common cold. It's important to take the full dosage schedule of Avelox, even if you're feeling better in a few days. Not completing the full dosage schedule may decrease the drug's effectiveness and increase the chances that the bacteria may become resistant to Avelox and similar antibiotics. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids while taking Avelox. If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose in an effort to "catch up." Storage instructions... Store Avelox at room temperature. Avoid high humidity. Most people taking Avelox do not experience side effects; and when reactions do occur, they are usually mild. If you do develop a side effect, however, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Avelox. Side effects may include: Abdominal pain, anemia, anxiety, decreased blood pressure, diarrhea, dizziness headache, drowsiness, insomnia, joint and muscle pain, nausea, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, rash, sweating Acute Bacterial Sinusitis The usual dose is one 400-milligram tablet daily for 7 to 14 days. Acute Bacterial Infection with Chronic Bronchitis The usual dose is one 400-milligram tablet daily for 5 days. Pneumonia The usual dose is one 400-milligram tablet daily for 7 to 14 days. Skin Infections The usual dose is one 400-milligram tablet daily for 7 days. :) Answered by Tuyet Marone 6 months ago.

Maybe it was just me but I would not advise a DOG to take this prescription. And just to think the doctor wanted to give me an injection in his office instead of the pills. Next time I have a cold, I will treat it with old folk remedies and kept the Hell out of any doctor office. Answered by Melina Durousseau 6 months ago.
Chest colds do not require the antibiotic Avelox, however bronchitis and pneumonia do require antibiotics. The next time you have a "chest cold" you need to tell everyone that you cannot tolerate Avelox. Doctors prescribe antibiotics when they can either hear the rattle in your lungs or have seen a chest xray that indicates bronchitis or pneumonia. Your understanding of the difference between a cold and an infection is not good. Colds are not cured with antibiotics, and not all antibiotics will make you sick. *You are allergic to Avelox* You were given Avelox because you have an upper or lower respiratory infection - Avelox is designed for that. It's a specialty drug, for lung or sinus infection. If you still have your "chest cold" you could have pneumonia and if left untreated you could die. You are exposing everyone to your illness if you have not been properly treated for your infection, also. You should consider wearing a Medic Alert bracelet so you never receive Avelox again.

hehe yeah for colds and flu's i would just use old folks remedies is the best :D, but the doctor that prescribed u avelox thought u had a bacteria infection, now u do need medication if u have a bacteria infection :P, but unfortunatly one of the side effects of avelox which is heart problems and its rare which is just what u experienced, im so sorry u had to go through. but if u have a cold just tell ure doc ure alergic to avelox, or cant tolorate it due to its side effect. and they may do more test to see what else u might be alergic to. but dnt worry, no need to blank out the doc completly! take it easy keep smiling :) Answered by Latoria Propp 6 months ago.
WOW! I see the stupid element even with each thing those years. i presumed it grew to become into touching on a literal "foxhole" as in international war One. yet, now I see that the word is in accordance with 2 words ... fox and hollow ... which could truthfully propose a literal hollow owned via a fox. properly, how would a fox very own something besides its fur? I propose the hollow is interior the floor and does he/she have a written documentation of possession like a deed OR can the fox even study or write. I see now how stupid this finished difficulty is and that i greet your perceptiveness with the tribute of a celebrity given FOR SILLINESS. Answered by Lowell Snachez 6 months ago.

Avelox and magnesium,aluminum?
im taking avelox antibiotic for my thorat bacterial infection....i brought guava juice today but i think it contains magnesium or aluminum....how long after taking avelox can i drink the guava juice????
Asked by Gertrud Mabary 6 months ago.
Avelox has a drug interaction with aluminum hydroxide, aluminum-magnesium hydroxide, calcium carbonate, didanosine, magnesium hydroxide, multivitamins and things that contain zinc. The specific interaction is that these may interfere with the absorption of moxifloxacin (Avelox) in your G.I. tract . Either take the Avelox either 4 hours before or take it 8 hours after ingesting these. Or do it the other way around - eat/drink things on this list 4 hours after taking the Avelox or 8 hours before taking Avelox. If you find this to be too much work, avoid all products on this list until the Avelox protocol is completed. Guavas have magnesium. Answered by Charlesetta Casselman 6 months ago.

My doctor prescribed me Avelox for my sinuses. He told me it would "knock the hell" out of any bacterial infection in my body. I was reading online about many patients experiencing horrible side effects. Some sources believe that this should only be a drug of last resort. I am a 20 year old male and I am at a healthy weight. Are there any doctors here that can tell me if Avelox is a safe drug to take? How about patients that have been on Avelox? Thanks. Answered by Darline Fredericksen 6 months ago.

Will Avelox cure an upper respitory infection?
My doctor perscibed it but i wanted to no will avelox work if so. What is better avelox or predisone for a U.R.I
Asked by Marielle Chavez 6 months ago.
Avelox is a broad spectrum antibiotic that works well on U.R.I. It also works well on lung infections. Your U.R.I. is probably caused by a bacteria, which is why your doctor prescribed the antibiotic. A steroid would have little to no effect on a bacterial infection. Take the avelox as directed and make sure to take all of it, even if you start feeling better. Good luck. Answered by Ofelia Nessel 6 months ago.
