I have got severe diarrhea. I have taken norflox tz only one tablet now the doctor has prescribed ofloxacin course. Can I now start the course of ofloxacin despite having taken only one norflox tz. Can I have ofloxacin after after a few hours of taking norflox tz. Is it ok or there are side effects on the interaction of these 2 medicines taken one after another.

Yes it is ok. You can start with it. But taking only ofloxacin is not enough. Take tinidazole or metronidazole or ornidazole with it.
