What Is Levofloxacin Used For?
Levofloxacin (Levaquin) is a type of antibiotic used to treat specific types of infections. Similar to ciprofloxacin, moxifloxacin and ofloxacin, levofloxacin belongs to a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Levofloxacin has historically been used to treat urinary tract infections - including more complex ones. Levaquin can also treat certain types of pneumonia, sinusitis, acute bacterial exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, skin infections, prostatitis and more. Resistance to Levaquin has been observed, particularly by strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is why levofloxacin should be prescribed judiciously. Levofloxacin is used to treat specific bacterial infections and is ineffective in treating infections caused by viruses.
