A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Noroxin side effects may occur, and some users may experience nausea, stomach cramps, dizziness, headache, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. If side effects are experienced, you may want to stop use and meet with a doctor again to discuss antibiotic medication alternatives.
How long will it take for this antibiotic to clear my infection?
The duration of time you'll need to stay on Noroxin medication will be dependent on the type of infection you have and what number of Noroxin 400mg tablets the doctor has indicated for daily intake in your prescription. Most bacterial infections are cleared within 7 to 10 days, but urinary tract infections and prostatitis can require 3 weeks or more.
What should I do if I experience inflammation at the infection site?
You can use an OTC topical anti-inflammatory like Voltaren to reduce inflammation, and this will usually be less of an issue as the infection starts to clear. Always finish the entirety of your medication even if your infection appears to be gone.
Is there a connection between this antibiotic and tendinitis and other tendon or muscle problems?
Yes, people who are more at risk of having weakened tendons or muscles or who are generally in poorer physical health may have their doctor recommend a different antibiotic medication. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics have been associated with tendinitis and even tendon ruptures, and they block neuromuscular activity which can worsen muscle weakness in people with myasthenia gravis.
Can coffee make me more overstimulated when I'm using an antibiotic?
Yes, antibiotic drugs like Norfloxacin can slow the breakdown of caffeine and result in more of it being present and active in the body. It is a good idea to reduce your caffeine intake through coffee, tea, and soft drinks while you treat your bacterial infection with Noroxin.
