Mode of Action of Moxifloxacin

Moxifloxacin is a relatively new antibiotic. It belongs to the group of gyrase inhibitors.

Generally, once daily, moxifloxacin is sufficient. Due to the good absorption and distribution in the body this can be done as a tablet.

In the case of Gram positive pathogens such as staphylococci and pneumococci, it is characterized by an increased efficacy compared to the standard gyrase inhibitors ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin. In contrast, the effect on Gram-negative bacteria is usually worse than that of Ciprofloxacin.

    Moxifloxacin for Lung infection

    Moxifloxacin has helped me against a suspected bacterial pneumonia with high fever and painful cough good and fast and without significant side effects. After reading some of the posts on this page, I was afraid of a lot, but on the contrary. Except for a tingling in the cheeks after the first tablet was nothing. According to my doctor, I should take two tablets on the first day, one at noon after the doctor’s visit, the second in the evening, and then one every day, whenever possible at the same time. I slept a bit after the first tablet, and then I was feeling a lot better very quickly. The fever went down and the cough was not so painful anymore. I always took moxifloxacin in the evening, just before bedtime. So if it makes you tired, then it does not matter.

    Moxifloxacin for Bronchitis (acute)

    After only 30 minutes of the first tablet I became more and more depressed and saddened, until it came to a bad spasm of wine and led to a severe depressive episode with the worst mental pain, which led me to the emergency room. After the effect wore off, I felt much better again, and the symptoms disappeared within 3 hours. This is also listed in the accompanying letter as a possible side effect. The drug was immediately discontinued and replaced with another.

    Moxifloxacin for Bronchitis (acute)

    I took the drug because of severe bronchitis. The first three days I got sick about 30 minutes after taking it for about an hour. The bronchitis was suddenly better and the fever was over on the third day of intake. On the fourth day I felt very bad in the morning with dizziness and severe dry mouth and I was panicked. I’m right to the doctor. this one said that could well come from moxifloxacin and I should have reported earlier. I was allowed to discontinue the medication after four days. But as I said, the bronchitis was cured after three days.

    Side effects: Panic attack; Dizziness

    Moxifloxacin for Lung infection

    The first 4 days I had only a headache and I did not think much. But on the 5th day I was suddenly in the morning from one minute to the other totally bad. I had to vomit, had diarrhea, dizziness, severe headaches, tremors, dizziness and a panic attack. I was feeling very bad for two days and at first I thought of a stomach flu (I even got infusions), but then I read on this page that several people had these bad experiences and I realized that it was just the antibiotic can. I did not take the last pill and woke up almost without complaint the next day. I would not take this stuff anymore.

    Moxifloxacin for Lung infection

    Due to a one-sided pneumonia Moxifloxaxin was prescribed me. Already after the first intake my general condition worsened: shaking, insomnia, stomachache, strong feeling of thirst. After the second dose, confusion and shortness of breath were added. After taking the third dose, severe burning all over the skin, dehydration despite increased fluid intake, severe circulatory problems, and eventually a severe shock that required my hospitalization. I had to be treated with infusions and antihistamines and it took about 6 hours until my condition was again reasonably stable.

    Side effects: Tremble

    Got this antibiotic for a dog bite. Once a day for 4 days. I thought it was cruel. I had a headache, numbness in my arms, was so dizzy that I thought I was drunk. In addition came Herzstechen, got bad air and sweat a lot. But it has helped super fast and you could stop the onset of blood poisoning very quickly. If you lie down and rest, it is more bearable. Would recommend it only in hard cases.

    Side effects: Headache; Dizziness

    Moxifloxacin for Bronchitis (acute)

    Hello everybody, my experience with Moxifloxacin: I got it prescribed because the first antibiotic did not really work against my bronchitis. Day 1 with moxifloxacin: I took the tablet in the evening, 30 minutes later I was terribly bad. Then I went to bed with the hope that it will be better, then I fell asleep relatively quickly. Day 2: Immediately had the feeling of sudden improvement of my bronchitis. In the evening, however, I was then nervous before taking the second tablet. 30 minutes after receipt of income I felt sick, dizzy, had chills, shivering, could only see unfocused and wanted to run away from myself. (Know all this about my panic attacks – anxiety disorder, which I did not have until then or had been successfully intercepted). Then I went to bed and quickly fell asleep again. Day 3 – Hell’s Day !: I was funny from the morning and I had a panic attack after work the whole day at work, which scared me a lot. I never wanted to get back to this point. In the evening, I thought to myself I take the tablet directly before going to sleep, hoping to fall asleep immediately and thus stay calm. Has worked great except that I am exactly 90 minutes after earnings woken up in a sweaty sweaty panic attack. I was barely able to breathe, was very restless, was scared to death and could not apply anything I learned from my psychologist. I was about to vote 112. 45 minutes it took me until I fell asleep again. Day 4 = Today: I am in the morning to my doctor. He told me to stop the antibiotics immediately. I will definitely not take a tablet tonight. I still feel bad because I still have the symptoms of panic attacks. My question to you: When will the panic attacks stop? When am I not so dumb? When am I focused again? I am so afraid that it will be the same again.

    Side effects: Panic attack; Dizziness
