Norfloxacin 400 MG Tablet is a medicine that is used to cure bacterial infections. However, remember that this drug will not be effective for infections that aren’t caused by bacteria (viral infections such as common cold and the flu). Using an antibiotic repetitively and for infections that aren’t bacterial will lead the medicine to lose its potency over a period of time. Don’t consume any dairy product either two hours prior to or an hour after taking Norfloxacin 400 MG Tablet.
The treatment plan and dosage will depend upon the severity of the condition. It is advised to take this drug minimum two hours prior to consuming other minerals/vitamins or such products containing aluminum/magnesium such as antacids. For best results, take this medicine at regular intervals every day. Try to limit your intake of caffeinated beverages such as coffee or tea, for that matter, as caffeine can interfere with the medicine’s potency in all probability.
Risk factors for this medicine include kidney disorders, heart afflictions and epileptic seizures. It isn’t recommended for children below the age of 12 years. Overdosing on Norfloxacin 400 MG Tablet can result in irregular (slow) heart beats. Few side effects include an allergic response in the form of rashes, irritation of the skin, itching, etc. (though very rare), chest pain, dizziness, confusion, seizures, liver damage, joint or muscle pain, a ringing sensation in the ears (tinnitus), lightheadedness, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, headaches and troubled sleeping. Don’t take narcotic pain medicines if you experience any of these side effects since these can cause you more harm than good.
