Each tablet contains Ofloxacin 200mg and Ornidazole 500mg


Ofrum-Oz tablet is a combination of two antibiotics. It is used in the treatment of bacterial and parasitic infections. It effectively treats many bacterial infections in the teeth, lungs, gastrointestinal infections, and urinary and genital tract.

Ofrum-Oz tablet is best taken with food. Take it at a fixed time to ensure better efficacy. Please do not take more than the recommended dose, as it may harm your body. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. A treatment must be completed even if you feel better to ensure a complete recovery. Ofrum-Oz tablets work by the combined action of Ofloxacin and Ornidazole. Ofloxacin inhibits the enzyme synthesis responsible for bacterial DNA replication. Hence, it shows the bactericidal effects. Ornidazole distracts the DNA helical structure, which interrupts the protein synthesis and ultimately leads to the death of bacteria.


One tablet twice daily for at least five days or as the physician recommends.


If you are allergic to Ofloxacin, Ornidazole, or any of the ingredients of Ofrum Oz Tablets.
