Reviews for Gatifloxacin
For Bronchitis: "I am Doctor( general Physician and Public health Specialist running a private hospital in rural area of northwest province of Pakistan. Here in this area the typhoid fever is endemic and now the strands of S.typhi and Paratyphi become Multidrug-resistant typhoid fever due to unethical prescription of antibiotic/s esp fluoroquinolone and cephalosporins In my personal practice the combination of gatifloxacin with Azithromycin has high cure rate and eradicative as well as cost effective. 7 to 10 days treatment regimen. Stool examination should be done for S.typhi and paratyphi excretion at end of treatment. If the patient become carrier than four weeks regimen should be prescribed along with preventive measures thanks"
