Medical Description

O2 tablet is an antibiotic medicine. It is used to treat diarrhoea due to mixed infections in adults. It is also used for the treatment of bacterial infections of various organs. It is a combination medicine containing ofloxacin and ornidazole as active ingredients. O2 tablet works by suppressing the growth of bacteria and kills the bacteria responsible for the infection.

Some other tablets containing ofloxacin and ornidazole are Zenflox Oz, Ornof, Orni O and Nor Metrogyl Plus. O2 tablets must be taken as prescribed by a doctor. Do not stop taking this medicine if you feel better within a few days. Always finish the course of antibiotic medicine for effective treatment.

You should also be aware that antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infection and not for viral infections like flu or cold. Using an antibiotic unnecessarily can make them ineffective for future infection.

Before starting the treatment with an O2 tablet, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history.
