What should I avoid while taking Avelox?

Be careful about drug interactions, sun exposure, and driving while on Avelox. Some types of medication can prevent Avelox from working as well, so let your doctor know about all the medications you currently take. Use caution when you are in the sun or a tanning bed, since you are more likely to get sunburn while on Avelox. Keep your skin covered or wear sunscreen. Until you know how Avelox affects you, do not drive while on the medication.
