Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug You should not use this medication if you are allergic to ofloxacin or similar antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin), norfloxacin (Noroxin), lomefloxacin (Maxaquin), and others.

These effects may be more likely to occur if you are over 60, if you take an oral steroid medication, or if you have had a kidney, heart, or lung transplant.

If you have certain conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use this medication. Before you take ofloxacin, tell your doctor if you have: a history of allergic reaction to an antibiotic; myasthenia gravis; joint problems; kidney or liver disease; epilepsy or a history of seizures; diabetes; low levels of potassium in your blood (hypokalemia); or a personal or family history of "Long QT syndrome."
