Description of Noroxin
The generic name of Noroxin is Norfloxacin. It belongs to a family of medicines known as Fluoroquinolones. Noroxin is available in the form of an oral tablet. The drug is a prescription medication, which means you need to consult your doctor before you buy Noroxin online.
Indications & Dosage of Noroxin
Noroxin is indicated in the treatment of bacterial infections of the urinary tract such as chronic prostatis and cystitis. It is also used in the treatment of urinary infections related to kidney stones.

The recommended daily dose to treat urinary tract infection is 400mg, two times a day for 3 days, while the recommended dose to treat prostatis is 400mg, two times a day for 28 days.
