How Ofloxacin + Metronidazole works

Ofloxacin comes into the quinolone antibiotic category. It acts by inhibiting the activity of the bacterial enzyme DNA-gyrase. It stops bacterial cells from multiplying and regenerating, resulting in their death. Metronidazole comes into the nitroimidazole antibiotic category. It kills infection-causing parasites and anaerobic bacteria by breaking their DNA. Together, they completely treat your infection.
