Hi,

Please let me know the dose and duration for ofloxacin in infants with authentic studies.

Hi,

Thank you for your query on icliniq.

  • There is no authentic data of studies on the safety of ofloxacin in infants.
  • But the dosage is 15mg/kg/day in two divided doses orally.
  • It is being given in infants below the age of 1 year in routine practice in some selected infections such as urinary tract infections and bacterial gastroenteritis with reasonable safety data.
