Expert advice

  • Always take pefloxacin along with food. 
  • Avoid sun or UV light exposure during pefloxacin therapy as it may cause photosensitivity.
  • Inform your doctor if you are additionally receiving treatment with theophylline, usually for lung diseases, as pefloxacin may cause theophylline toxicity.
  • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or think you may become pregnant or breastfeeding.
