TROVAFLOXACIN-ORAL, Trovan (cont.)
DRUG INTERACTIONS: Tell your doctor of all nonprescription and prescription medication you may use, especially of: antacids containing magnesium or aluminum, sucralfate, vitamins or minerals containing iron, citric acid/sodium citrate, morphine injections (by vein), blood pressure medications (e.g., prazosin), other antibiotics (especially quinolone-type). Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine(coffee, tea, colas) or eating large amounts of chocolate. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Also, certain cough/cold products (with "adrenaline-like" medicine such as decongestants), isoniazid and cholinesterase blockers such as tacrine and donepezil might increase the chance of seizures. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
OVERDOSE: If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. US residents can call the US national poison hotline at 1-800-222-1222. Canadian residents should call their local poison control center directly.
NOTES: This medication has been prescribed for your current condition only. Do not use it later for another infection or give it to others. A different medication may be needed in those cases. Laboratory tests may be performed to monitor side effects.
MISSED DOSE: If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.
