This is the recommended dosage for levofloxacin, but it depends on what your doctor prescribes for you as well.

Usual Adult Dose for Urinary Tract Infection:

Complicated: 250 mg orally or IV once a day for 10 days or 750 mg orally or IV once a day for 5 days

The 750 mg, 5-day regimen is not approved by the FDA for the treatment of mild to moderate complicated infections due to Enterococcus faecalis, Enterobacter cloacae, or Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Uncomplicated: 250 mg orally or IV once a day for 3 days.
