For the parenteral and oral dosage forms showing a bioequivalence, the same dosage can be used, usually for 7-14 days depending on severity of the disease.
Usual dosage in patients with normal renal function (creatinine clearance >80 ml/minute) is 250-500 mg once daily depending on type and severity of the infection and sensitivity of the pathogens.
It is usually possible to switch from initial intravenous treatment to the oral route after a few days, according to the condition of the patient.
Elderly patients (with normal renal function) should receive the same dosage as normal adult patients.
PATIENTS WITH IMPAIRED HEPATIC FUNCTION
Patients with impaired hepatic function (but with normal renal function) should receive the same dosage as normal adult patients.
Levofloxacin injection is indicated when intravenous administration offers a route administration advantageous to the patient (e.g., patient cannot tolerate an oral dosage form). Levofloxacin is indicated in Adults (≥18 years) in infections with susceptible microorganism, such as:
