Drug Description


Factive Gemifloxacin is indicated for treating a diverse range of bacterial infections. This pharmaceutical agent falls under the classification of quinolone antibiotics. Its mechanism of action involves impeding bacterial proliferation by halting their growth. This antibiotic targets bacterial infections and is ineffective against viral infections, such as the common cold or flu. The judicious use of antibiotics is crucial, as their unnecessary administration may render them less effective in future instances of infection. 

Uses and Dosage 

Factive (gemifloxacin mesylate) is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic for treating various bacterial infections. 

Consume this medication orally, either with or without food, following the instructions provided by your healthcare professional, typically once daily. The prescribed dosage and duration of treatment are determined based on your specific medical condition and response to therapy. While taking this medication, maintain proper hydration by consuming ample fluids unless otherwise directed by your doctor. 

To ensure optimal efficacy, take this medication 2 hours before or 3 hours after consuming other substances that may potentially diminish its effectiveness. Such substances include quinapril, sucralfate, vitamins/minerals (including iron and zinc), and products containing magnesium or aluminum (e.g., antacids, didanosine solution). Consult your pharmacist regarding all the products you currently use. 

Ad adheres to a consistent schedule by taking this antibiotic at evenly spaced intervals to enhance adherence and establish a routine by taking the medication daily because it can aid in remembering the dosage.
