How does Ofloxacin work?
Ofloxacin can be used as treatment for a lot of infections caused by bacteria pathogens (both gram positive and gram negative). It works by restraining DNA gyrase (a topoisomerase IV, and type 2 topoisomerase); an enzyme needed to separate replicated DNA. In other words, Ofloxacin stops bacterial cell division.
In some cases, Ofloxacin may also be used to treat other types of infections, including infections in the bones, joints, intestines and stomach. It can also help in treating or even preventing anthrax and other known plagues.
For pregnant women, it has been shown that fluoroquinolones can easily cross the blood-placenta and the blood-milk barrier. It is also extensively distributed to the fetal tissues. Hence, breast-feeding mothers who take Ofloxacin may expose their child to severe side effects.

When under Ofloxacin treatment, a patient must take it around the same times every day. Furthermore, the patient must see to it that there is an interval of twelve (12) hours in between doses.
