LEVAQUIN®
(levofloxacin in 5% dextrose) Injection, for Intravenous Use

WARNING
Fluoroquinolones, including LEVAQUIN®, are associated with an increased
risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture in all ages. This risk is further increased
in older patients usually over 60 years of age, in patients taking corticosteroid
drugs, and in patients with kidney, heart or lung transplants [See WARNINGS
AND PRECAUTIONS].

DRUG DESCRIPTION



What are the possible side effects of levofloxacin (Levaquin, Levaquin Leva-Pak)?

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using levofloxacin and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

dizziness, fainting, fast or pounding heartbeat;
sudden pain or swelling near your joints (especially in your arm or ankle);
diarrhea that is watery or bloody;
confusion,...

LEVAQUIN® is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial agent for oral and intravenous administration. Chemically, levofloxacin, a chiral fluorinated carboxyquinolone, is the pure (-)-(S)-enantiomer of the racemic drug substance ofloxacin. The chemical name is (-)-(S)-9-fluoro-2,3-dihydro-3-methyl-10-(4-methyl-1-piperazinyl)-7-oxo-7H-pyrido[1,2,3-de]-1,4-benzoxazine-6-carboxylic acid hemihydrate.
Figure 1: The Chemical Structure of Levofloxacin







The empirical formula is C18H20FN3O4
• ½ H2O and the molecular weight is 370.38. Levofloxacin
is a light yellowish-white to yellow-white crystal or crystalline powder. The
molecule exists as a zwitterion at the pH conditions in the small intestine.
The data demonstrate that from pH 0.6 to 5.8, the solubility of levofloxacin
is essentially constant (approximately 100 mg/mL). Levofloxacin is considered
soluble to freely soluble in this pH range, as defined by USP nomenclature.
Above pH 5.8, the solubility increases rapidly to its maximum at pH 6.7 (272
mg/mL) and is considered freely soluble in this range. Above pH 6.7,
the solubility decreases and reaches a minimum value (about 50 mg/mL) at a pH
of approximately 6.9.
Levofloxacin has the potential to form stable coordination compounds with many
metal ions. This in vitro chelation potential has the following formation
order: Al+3 > Cu+2 > Zn+2 > Mg+2 > Ca+2.
Excipients and Description of Dosage Forms
LEVAQUIN® Tablets
LEVAQUIN® Tablets are available as film-coated tablets and contain the
following inactive ingredients:

250 mg (as expressed in the anhydrous form): hypromellose, crospovidone,
microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol, titanium
dioxide, polysorbate 80 and synthetic red iron oxide.
500 mg (as expressed in the anhydrous form): hypromellose, crospovidone,
microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol, titanium
dioxide, polysorbate 80 and synthetic red and yellow iron oxides.
750 mg (as expressed in the anhydrous form): hypromellose, crospovidone,
microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol, titanium
dioxide, polysorbate 80.

LEVAQUIN® Oral Solution
LEVAQUIN® Oral Solution, 25 mg/mL, is a multi-use self-preserving aqueous solution of levofloxacin with pH ranging from 5.0 - 6.0. The appearance of LEVAQUIN® Oral Solution may range from clear yellow to clear greenish-yellow. This does not adversely affect product potency.
LEVAQUIN® Oral Solution contains the following inactive ingredients: sucrose, glycerin, sucralose, hydrochloric acid, purified water, propylene glycol, artificial and natural flavors, benzyl alcohol, ascorbic acid, and caramel color. It may also contain a solution of sodium hydroxide for pH adjustment.
LEVAQUIN® Injection
The appearance of LEVAQUIN® Injection may range from a clear yellow to a clear
greenish-yellow solution. This does not adversely affect product potency.
LEVAQUIN® Injection in Single-Use Vials is a sterile, preservative-free
aqueous solution of levofloxacin in Water for Injection, with pH ranging from
3.8 to 5.8.
LEVAQUIN® Injection Premix in Single-Use Flexible Containers is
a sterile, preservative-free aqueous solution of levofloxacin with pH ranging
from 3.8 to 5.8. This is a dilute, non-pyrogenic, nearly isotonic premixed solution
that contains levofloxacin in 5% Dextrose (D5W). Solutions of hydrochloric
acid and sodium hydroxide may have been added to adjust the pH.
The flexible container is fabricated from a specially formulated non-plasticized, thermoplastic copolyester (CR3). The amount of water that can permeate from the container into the overwrap is insufficient to affect the solution significantly. Solutions in contact with the flexible container can leach out certain of the container's chemical components in very small amounts within the expiration period. The suitability of the container material has been confirmed by tests in animals according to USP biological tests for plastic containers.
