- once a day, easy administration
Possible Drug Interactions:
Compounds (eg, sucralfate, antacids, and multivitamins) containing divalent and trivalent cations (eg, iron, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, and zinc) may substantially interfere with the absorption of quinolones resulting in a decrease in product bioavailability. Therefore, the concomitant oral administration of quinolones with foods, supplements, or other preparations containing these compounds should be avoided. The dosage of theophylline should be reduced when used concurrently with fluoroquinolones. Cimetidine has been shown to interfere with the metabolism of fluoroquinolones and should be used with care when used concurrently. Concurrent use of fluoroquinolones with oral cyclosporine is contraindicated. Concurrent administration of fluoroquinolones may increase the action of oral anticoagulants.
Possible Side Effects:
- loss of appetite,
- diarrhea at high doses.
- seizures in animals with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, or other signs such as depression, dizziness, nervousness, or other behavior changes.
- At high doses, some antibiotics like Orbax may cause altered vision or blindness in cats.
