Noroxin was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1986. It was developed by Merck & Co., Inc. and is now available in generic form. The active ingredient in Noroxin is norfloxacin, and it is also known by its generic name, norfloxacin.
Noroxin works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It does this by inhibiting the production of an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which is necessary for the replication of bacterial DNA. By preventing the replication of bacterial DNA, Noroxin is able to kill the bacteria and stop the infection.
Noroxin is generally well tolerated and side effects are usually mild. Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and headache. More serious side effects may include tendonitis, a condition in which the tendons become inflamed, and an increased risk of tendon rupture.
Noroxin is an effective antibiotic for treating a wide range of bacterial infections. It is generally well tolerated, but it is important to follow the instructions of your doctor or pharmacist to ensure that it is used correctly. It is also important to take all of the medication as prescribed, even if the symptoms of your infection have improved. This will help ensure that the infection is fully treated and prevent the bacteria from becoming resistant to Noroxin.
