Sample Use Guides

In Vivo Use Guide
Norfloxacin tablets is administered orally with a glass of water at least 1 hour before or at least 2 hours after a meal or dairy products (e.g., milk, yogurt). Patients receiving norfloxacin should be well hydrated and should be instructed to drink fluids liberally. The maximal oral dose is 400 mg. For treatment of conjunctivitus, norfloxacin should be instilled at 1 or 2 drops to the affected eye(s) 4 times daily for up to 7 days.
Route of Administration: oral; topical
In Vitro Use Guide
Minimal inhibition concnetration of norfloxacin aganis S.aureus, E.coli and P.aeuginosa was determined using agar media by means of a standard twofold serial dilution method and comprised 0.39, 0.05 and 0.39 ug/mL correspondingly.
