It is primarily taken to treat bacterial infections of the nose, sinus, throat, lungs (pneumonia), urinary tract and female upper genital tract. A bacterial infection is a condition in which bacteria grows in the body and cause infection. It can target any body part and multiple very quickly.
MFLOTAS EYE DROPS contains Moxifloxacin that acts as a bactericidal agent that kills bacteria causing a wide range of infections.

Additionally, when this medicine is taken as a course, as directed by a physician, it helps in eradicating and preventing the return of infections caused due to microorganisms responsible for bacterial infections. Streptococcus pneumonia, (pneumonia-causing bacteria) resistant to previous fluoroquinolones antibiotics, are less likely to be resistant to MFLOTAS EYE DROPS. It will not work for viral infections (like a common cold, flu).
