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.

Hope I have answered your query. Consult a paediatrician online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/paediatrician
