HOW TO USE AVELOX ABC PACK:
AVELOX ABC PACK: Take AVELOX ABC PACK by mouth, generally once daily, as directed by your doctor. Drink plenty of fluids while using AVELOX ABC PACK, unless instructed otherwise. The length of treatment depends on your condition and response to therapy. Take AVELOX ABC PACK exactly as prescribed. Do not exceed the recommended dose of AVELOX ABC PACK. Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. This is done by taking the medication at evenly spaced intervals (e.g., every 24 hours). Continue to take AVELOX ABC PACK until the full-prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medicine too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, resulting in a relapse of the infection. Take AVELOX ABC PACK either 4 hours before or 8 hours after taking didanosine, sucralfate, aluminum, magnesium or calcium- containing antacids, iron or zinc preparations or vitamin/mineral products. These products may bind with this medicine and interfere with its absorption. Consult your pharmacist for more information.
