INDICATION OF FLOXGUARD 5 TAB

FLOXGUARD is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated micoorganisms in the conditions listed below: Acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, or Moraxella catarrhalis. Community -acquired pneumonia ( of mild to moderate severity) caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae ( including multi-drug resistant strains [MDRSP]), Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or Klebsiella pneumoniae. “MDRSP”: multi-drug resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae, includes isolates previously known as PRSP ( penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae ), and are strains resistant to two or more of the following antibiotics: penicillin (MIC ≥2 µg/mL), 2nd generation cephalosporins ( e.g., cefuroxime), macrolides, tetracyclines and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole. To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of FLOXGUARD and other antibacterial drugs, FLOXGUARD should be used only to treat infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

The minimum lethal intravenous doses in these species were 160 and 80 mg/kg, respectively.
