I am being treated for chronic prostatitis rebounce. It is now the third day I am taking Tavanik (Levofloxacin) 500 mg a day. I am taking it the same time each day among other medications. One of them is Vigantol 1000 I.E. My doctor told me to take Tavanik at least one hour after and before other medications. I think I have errored and might have taken Vigantol soon after Tavanik. Any problem with that?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your query, your doctor had suggested you take Levofloxacin before any other medication as the absorption will be better. Usually, we instruct patients to wait for an hour at least so that the drug can be absorbed. Unless you took both the medication together, even if you had spaced them by 30 minutes you should be fine. There is nothing to be concerned. But I would suggest you space the medication properly from now, because in chronic prostatitis, the more the drug is absorbed, better is its action.
