shorter five-day regimen of levofloxacin (Leva-pak) for acute bacterial sinusitis

You'll see prescriptions for the shorter five-day regimen of levofloxacin (Leva-pak) for acute bacterial sinusitis.

Patients can now take 750 mg daily for 5 days... instead of the usual 500 mg for 10 days.

The "higher dose, shorter course" approach is just as effective and has similar side effects...but is more convenient.
