Hello,

Have you been to the Doctor? well if you did you should know.

NOW IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE DOCTOR DO NOT
SELF MEDICATE THAT WOLUD BE A VERY BIG MISTAKE.

Did´nt your Doctor tell you how?, I am sure he/she must have done... anyway I am here to help... but before I do that you HAVE TO CALL YOUR DOCTOR FIRST THING MONDAY MORNING AND CONFIRM WITH HIM/HER ON HOW THIS DRUG SHOULD BE TAKEN... IT IS FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION,OK AND DISCUSS THE SIDE EFFECTS, BENEFITS, WARNINGS ALL THE INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY

HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth, usually twice a day, at least 1 hour before or at least 2 hours after a meal or dairy products (e.g., milk, yogurt). Take with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters). Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication unless your DOCTOR tells you otherwise. The dosage is based on your medical condition. Take this medication 2 hours before or 2 hours after taking any products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium. Some examples include quinapril, certain forms of didanosine (chewable/dispersible buffered tablets or pediatric oral solution), vitamins/minerals, and antacids. Calcium-enriched juices, sucralfate, bismuth subsalicylate, iron, and zinc are also included. These products bind with norfloxacin preventing its full absorption. Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals. Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection. Inform your DOCTOR if your condition persists or worsens.
