Norfloxacin Dosage in Bladder Infections
Available by prescription only, norfloxacin (Noroxin®) is an antibiotic used to treat certain bacterial infections, including gonorrhea, prostatitis, and urinary tract infections (UTIs, such as kidney or bladder infections). Your dosage of norfloxacin will depend on the type and severity of infection being treated and your kidney function.
For example, when treating bladder infections with norfloxacin, the typical dose is 400 mg every 12 hours for 3 to 21 days. People with kidney disease may need a lower amount.
This medication should be taken on an empty stomach at least one hour before or two hours after a meal. Even if you start to feel better after a couple of days, make sure to take your entire course of norfloxacin. Stopping it too early may cause your symptoms to return or lead to antibiotic resistance.
