Your doctor will give you a few doses of this medicine until your condition improves, and then switch you to an oral medicine that works the same way. If you have any concerns about this, talk to your doctor.
Several additional glasses of water should be taken every day while being treated with this medication, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Drinking extra water will help to prevent some unwanted effects of levofloxacin.
