Dear Genny,
You need to take a vit B complex, and eat yogurt regularly or get some inteflora to counteract the loss of good intestinal bacteria with the ofloxacin. You can take something like a immuunbooster ( buy at any pharmacy). Ensure that you get the flu vaccine before the winter, eat healthy food with at least 3 portions of fruit and 3 portions of vegetables each day.
