Noroxin is a prescribed medication utilized for the treatment of bacterial infections affecting the urinary tract and prostate. 

Noroxin is also indicated for the treatment of gonorrhea. 

Classified fluoroquinolone antibiotic, Noroxin exerts its bactericidal effects by inhibiting bacterial growth.  

This antibiotic exclusively targets bacterial infections and is ineffective against viral infections such as the common cold or flu. Unnecessary use of antibiotics can lead to decreased efficacy for future infections. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Noroxin and with each prescription refill, carefully review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or uncertainties. 

The dosage and duration of Noroxin treatment are determined by the patient’s medical condition and response to therapy. 

Typically, this medication is taken twice daily (every 12 hours) with a full glass of water. It should be taken at least one hour before or two hours after consuming a meal or dairy products. 

Ensure adequate hydration during Noroxin treatment unless advised otherwise by your physician. 

To optimize results, adhere to a consistent schedule of taking Noroxin at evenly spaced intervals each day. 

Complete the full course of this medication as prescribed without skipping any doses or discontinuing it even if symptoms improve. Premature cessation may lead to a recurrence of the infection.

Not all side effects of Noroxin are included in this list. In case any unlisted effects occur, tell your physician immediately.   


Before starting treatment with Noroxin, inform your doctor and pharmacist of any known allergies, particularly to: 

  • Norfloxacin 
  • Other quinolone antibiotics (e.g., ciprofloxacin, gemifloxacin, levofloxacin) 
  • Other drugs 
  • Any of the components of Noroxin tablets 

To ensure Noroxin is safe for you, disclose to your physician your medical background, especially if you have a history of: 

  • Joint/tendon issues (e.g., tendonitis, bursitis) 
  • Kidney disease 
  • Mental/mood disorders (e.g., depression) 
  • Myasthenia gravis (a neuromuscular disorder) 
  • Nerve problems (e.g., peripheral neuropathy) 
  • Seizure disorder 
  • Blood vessel problems (e.g., aneurysm, aortic or other blood vessel blockage, arterial hardening) 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Certain genetic conditions (Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) 

Noroxin can potentially interact with various drugs, including strontium. To reduce the likelihood of such interactions, inform your doctor and pharmacist about all prescription and non-prescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are currently taking or planning to take. 

Take Noroxin two hours apart from other products that may reduce its effectiveness. Examples of such products are: 

  • Quinapril 
  • Sucralfate 
  • Vitamins and minerals (including iron, zinc) 
  • Products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium (e.g., antacids, didanosine solution, calcium-enriched juice) 

Limit caffeine intake, including coffee and energy drinks, while taking Noroxin, as it can potentially prolong and intensify the effects of caffeine. 

Inform your healthcare provider that you are taking Noroxin before receiving any immunizations, as it may hinder the effectiveness of live bacterial vaccines, including the typhoid vaccine. 

Exercise caution when performing tasks that demand alertness, as Noroxin may hinder your cognitive abilities and reflexes. This includes driving and operating machinery. 

In rare cases, Noroxin can significantly alter blood sugar levels, particularly if you have diabetes. Monitor your blood sugar levels as instructed and report any findings to your physician. 

Noroxin can increase sun sensitivity. Minimize sun exposure, avoid tanning booths and sunlamps, and wear protective clothing when going out. Notify your doctor immediately if you experience sunburn or skin blisters/redness. 

The use of Noroxin during pregnancy is only recommended if the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks to the fetus. 

The transfer of norfloxacin into breast milk remains uncertain, although similar medications have been detected in breast milk. Before breastfeeding, consult with your doctor for guidance.
