Levofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic belonging to the fluoroquinolone class. It’s commonly prescribed to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and certain types of pneumonia. Levofloxacin works by inhibiting the bacterial DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV enzymes, which are essential for bacterial DNA replication, transcription, repair, and recombination. This action ultimately leads to the death of susceptible bacteria. Levofloxacin is typically taken orally as tablets or as an intravenous infusion. It’s important to use levofloxacin as directed by a healthcare professional and to complete the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve before completion, to ensure the infection is completely eradicated and to prevent antibiotic resistance. Additionally, it’s essential to be aware of potential side effects, including gastrointestinal upset, headache, dizziness, and tendon rupture, and to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider.
