What should I know about Floxin Otic Singles before taking them?

Floxin Otic Singles (ofloxacin) are single-use packets containing antibiotic drops. If your doctor prescribes Floxin Otic Singles for your ear infection, use the medication only in the ears. Do not get it in your eyes or swallow the drops. Be careful not to get water in your infected ear(s) while you are using Floxin Otic Singles. You should bathe carefully, and your doctor may recommend that you avoid swimming. Even if you start to feel better, do not stop taking Floxin Otic Singles early. If you stop taking the antibiotic before the infection is gone, it could come back and get worse. Do not take Floxin Otic if you've had an allergic reaction to other quinolone antibiotics like ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin. This drug may harm developing fetuses, so talk to your doctor if you're pregnant before taking this drug.
