Moxifloxacin HCL

Moxifloxacin HCL is a quinolone antibiotic. It is used to treat bacterial infections such as:

  • Acute flare-ups of chronic bronchitis
  • Community-acquired pneumonia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Bacterial eye infection
  • Acute bacterial sinusitis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Skin and skin structure infections
  • Abdominal Infections
  • Plague

It is sometimes used to treat endocarditis and certain sexually transmitted disease when other medications cannot be used. It is also sometimes used to treat Shigella and salmonella infections in patients who have HIV infections.

Moxifloxacin HCL works by killing the bacteria that cause infection. It interferes with the bacterial enzyme involved in repairing and replicating the genetic material (DNA) of bacteria. Once the enzyme does not work, the bacteria will not be able to reproduce and to repair them. This kills the bacteria and clears up the infections. It should only be used if other antibiotics have failed to clear up the infection.

Why Buy Moxifloxacin HCL?

Moxifloxacin HCL is US FDA-approved since 1988. It is on the WHO list of essential medicines. It’s also one of the most effective and safe medicines needed in the health system. It is available as generic and brand names like Avelox, Moxema and Vigamox. The generic version cost less than the brand names but both versions have the same mechanism of action.

How to Take Moxifloxacin HCL?

Moxifloxacin HCL comes in a tablet form of 400 mg that you need to take orally. The typical dose for most type of infection is one tablet of 400mg a day. Take this drug exactly as directed. Your physician may recommend you to take this drug for 5 or 10 days depending on your condition.

Swallow the tablet whole with water. You can take it with or without food.  For a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember. Finish the entire course of your treatment even if you feel better. The chance of your infection to come back is higher if you will stop your treatment too soon.
