What happens if I miss a dose of ofloxacin?

If you forget to take an oral dose of ofloxacin, take it as soon as you remember it. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, take only the next dose. Do not take two doses of ofloxacin at once. Doing so puts you at risk of overdose. Symptoms of ofloxacin overdose include: fatigue, stomach upset, feeling hot and cold, confusion and slurred speech.

If you forget an eye or ear drop dose of ofloxacin, take it as soon as you remember it. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, take only the next dose. Do not take two doses of ofloxacin at once.
