Query regarding Ofloxacin

I have consulted a doctor for diagnosis on diabetes. He prescribed Emoflox OZ containing the drug Ofloxacin stating that it is required to control unexpected fluctuations in the sugar level. And advised me to take half tablet per day. But when I enquired about it in net, many websites are stating that this drug is for uretus problems, kidney, lung problems etc., Can I get advice form any expert regarding the same and about dosage.

Ofloxacin is not a diabetes medicine. Its an antibiotic and it may cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels when given alongside diabetes medicines. It is usually given for certain diarrhoeal conditions. I believe there has been some miscommunication between you and your doctor.
