How should I take Amiflox?
Take Amiflox exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.
You may take Amiflox with or without food, at the same time each day.
Shake the oral suspension (liquid) for 15 seconds before you measure a dose. Use the dosing syringe provided, or use a medicine dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon). Do not give Amiflox oral suspension through a feeding tube.
Swallow the extended-release tablet whole and do not crush, chew, or break it.

If you are one of the unlucky individuals who has a genetic predisposition of not being able to metabolize the drug probably be prepared for a living nightmare. FYI if you take the generic version Amiflox under current law you will have no means of legal recourse under current Federal and 47 States.
